It’s time to roll out the smoker again, and we’re breaking out the rosé for the occasion.  Harry’s Pizzeria is so excited to welcome back The Genuine Hospitality Group Executive Chef Bradley Herron to pop a rosé barbecue dinner at Michael’s neighborhood American pizzeria.  This is the wine we like to drink; it always occupies a special place at the Schwartz table and summertime is no exception.  Here we’ll drink pink three ways, including a sparkling.  Harry’s loves beer too, so its four taps will feature refreshing summer beer styles for the week of the event.  Tickets are $79 and include it all — a stationed menu, all you care to drink rosé and draught beer, tax and gratuity.  You’ll grab a pizza tray and make the rounds to build your BBQ meal visiting the Smoker, Wood Oven, and Counter.  There will be plenty of Sides and Veggies too, and of course Dessert!  Stay tuned for Brad’s menu. All sales are final, seating is communal, and we’ll be open all night long.

Chef sharing what he and Mr. Larkee conceived for Fi’lia bread service at Cypress Tavern’s pre-shift last night — snipped fresh oregano, extra virgin olive oil and grilled, thick slices of crusty, pillowy ciabatta engineered by Tomas of Trueloaf to sop it all up.  Shears down, Nicole noted!

Our first Taste of Brickell has wrapped at Cypress Tavern, on the heels of last week’s announcement with sbe.  It was a lively, delicious evening and great example of our teams coming together to support Chef and deliver seamless genuine hospitality.  It’s all a part of the process as the restaurant’s future home goes under construction and ideas translate to reality.  So we’re not stopping there.  Get ready because the Fi’lia party is moving to Harry’s!

Tickets are now live HERE for Michael’s Fi’lia Pop-Up Dinner at Harry’s Pizzeria at 3918 North Miami Avenue in Miami’s Design District!  Tuesday July 26, your neighborhood American pizzeria welcomes Chef to pop an all new family-style menu for the evening based on what he’s been cooking and eating to prepare for his first Italian concept.  Fi’lia opens at SLS Brickell when the hotel debuts this fall.  A special perk for event guests? Tickets include a priority reservation at the forthcoming restaurant and a bottle of chef-selected wine for the table!
