Perricone’s was the first Brickell restaurant I tried in Miami and a place I frequent with friends… especially on Pasta Thursday because big girl loves to eat. It’s disturbing that Perricone’s has also fallen victim to the gentrification of Brickell because the restaurant has been a staple in the neighborhood since 1995. They haven’t announced what’s actually going to happen yet, and Perricone’s has a 5 year lease option on the land.
I was also pretty bummed when Tobacco Road closed it’s doors a few years ago. ESPECIALLY because the developer never built on the land. He just bought Tobacco Road and tore it down. The rest of the shopping center is still in tact.
But back to Perricone’s:
There hasn’t been any specific news on their next steps, but I’m hoping they announce something soon.
Here are a few links so you can read more about the sale.
Miami-History.com – a great article on the history of Perricone’s
I’ll continue to update this post as I learn more. In the meantime I’ll see you at Perricone’s for Pasta Thursdays!
