MIAMI – Fontainebleau Miami Beach, the iconic luxury resort destination situated on 20 oceanfront acres in the heart of Miami Beach, has partnered with Michelin-starred Chef Michael White to bring authentic coastal Italian cuisine to the property with the debut of Mirabella. Opening October 17, 2023, the restaurant will be Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s latest addition to its growing world-class dining portfolio.
“Mirabella is both a celebration of Italian cuisine and a reflection of my own culinary journey, which began 25 years ago during a transformative period for Italian cooking in the United States,” explains Chef White. “Opening Mirabella at Fontainebleau Miami Beach presents an exciting opportunity for us to transport our guests to the captivating coastal regions of Italy, while providing a unique and vibrant culinary experience.”
Mirabella’s design captures both the essence of coastal Italy and the vibrant energy of Miami Beach. The dining room boasts custom furniture with scarlet red and lapis blue lacquer, embossed leather upholstery, and intricate brass detailing. Hand-painted Dedar fabric, featuring an abstract palm tree print, adds a touch of Florida’s lush flora, while South African artist Lucie De Moyencourt’s hand-painted ceramic shells adorn the back wall. The pink hued Lilypad chandelier by Lara Gonzalez and the existing architectural elements create an inviting, and charming, ambiance. The rear dining terrace offers expansive oceanfront views, where a vibrant yellow and white striped canopy complements the terracotta-colored trellising. Serena & Lily’s woven rattan shades, Sika Design’s outdoor furniture, and blue and white woven wool rugs by Merida Studio underfoot create a cozy al fresco space. Inside, the bar features a captivating mosaic design and an inviting atmosphere with café curtains in ombre off-white and pale-yellow sheer fabric from Dedar.
The O Group is proud to be working with Chef Michael White once again on the brand development and creative for Mirabella.
