Today we have some great news to share. Michael is partnering with The Related Group and Terra Group to design a restaurant at Park Grove, the highly anticipated residential enclave steps from Biscayne Bay in the heart of Coconut Grove. The team assembled for this project is world class, and we are very energized to be a part of it! The 3,500-square-foot restaurant, designed by the globally recognized boutique design firm Meyer Davis, will sit at the intersection of Tigertail Avenue and Mary Street, facing Coconut Grove’s lush residential community. The idea is to combine the elegance and sophistication of The Cypress Room in a more casual neighborhood environment.
“It’s a really exciting time for Coconut Grove, and we feel lucky to be a part of what’s happening as we open Harry’s Pizzeria and look to the future with Park Grove,” Michael says. “With everything coming up so fast around us, the stakes are super high to make sure to deliver a place our neighbors new and old can grow with, frequent and make their own. The vision is for the space to open into a cozy courtyard that will become Coconut Grove’s own secret garden.”
Inspired by the exceptional natural scenery at his street-level doorstep, Michael is looking to draw the outside in and reflect the Grove’s historic significance to South Florida and unique, village lifestyle. An additional 1,000-square feet on-premise for private events will service the occasion needs of year-round locals and visitors alike. This is our third collaboration with Related, including culinary outposts at SLS Hotel & Residences in Brickell (opening summer 2016) and Paraiso Bay Restaurant & Beach Club in Edgewater (opening 2017).
Michael will be the exclusive in-house service provider for the restaurant, catering, pool and bar service on property, which comes with many perks for Park Grove residents. Amenities will include special seasonal menus, catering through concierge services for boat owners with vessels docked at Grove marinas, boxed lunches to go for families and kids, and exclusive access to a restaurant preview pop-up event by Regatta Park.
The concept is fashioned around Park Grove’s award-winning, curated lifestyle—a collaboration born through two of Miami’s most established developers, The Related Group and Terra Group—with architecture by OMA/Rem Koolhaas, interiors by Meyer Davis, kitchens and baths by William Sofield, a two-acre sculpture park by Enea Landscape Architecture and lifestyle curator Colin Cowie.
