Struggling Lorenzo calls it quits in Miami Beach
Chicago chef Tony Mantuano's Italian restaurant in the Redbury will close Sept. 1.
Lorenzo, the Italian restaurant from chef Tony Mantuano, will close Sept. 1 after a nine-month run at the Redbury South Beach.
The space will change over to Cleo, a Mediterranean-style restaurant that has an outpost at the Redbury's Los Angeles hotel. Projected opening: late fall.
Mantuano, a Michelin-starred, James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur from Chicago, will not be involved in Cleo.
"The hotel's restaurant is now under SBE management," a spokesman told Miami.com and the Miami Herald, referring to the group that operates the Redbury, SLS, Raleigh and other hotel properties as well as restaurants and nightclubs.
Lorenzo will operate for the next two and a half weeks, during which time it will continue to offer a Miami Spice menu.
