The Villa by Barton G relaunches restaurant as Il Sole
The Jordache fam keeps it swanky
Not too long after being purchased by the Jordache-owning Nakash family for $41.5 million, The Villa By Barton G. as it is still known, has introduced a new Mediterranean restaurant, Il Sole, helmed by executive chef Scott Linquist and executive pastry chef Luis Vasquez, who will cover the Versace-designed Rosenthal china with dishes of fish flown in daily from Honolulu, among other dishes. Those include Pistachio Seared Hawaiian Ahi, Lobster Beet and Burrata Salad, Charred Calabrian Octopus, three cuts of a Moroccan-spiced Lamb Tagine and a Butter Poached Maine Lobster.
“Recalling our earlier days at The Villa, it is particularly gratifying to return and once again invite the community into this extraordinary landmark of hospitality,” said Weiss. “We are certain that under the innovative and expert culinary guidance of Chefs Linquist and Vasquez, and the pleasure of working with the Nakash Family, “Il Sole” will define itself as an exciting new entry into the arena of South Florida dining.”
