MIA Kitchen & Bar Announces Opening

May 27, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

The modern, inventive and authentic MIA Kitchen & Bar will open its doors to friends and family on Friday, June 16 and will have its Grand Opening to the general public on Monday, June 19. “We have been anticipating this opening for several months,” Proprietor Joey LoGrasso says. “And we thank our loyal followers for their support.”

“Everybody’s been wondering what’s been going on inside,” Chef Blake Malatesta says. “Finally, we can show them what we have been working so hard on.” The goal of MIA is to bring local flavor to the table, showcasing Florida farming, agriculture, breweries, distilleries and more. “We want to educate the public on what Florida does,” Malatesta says. “There’s a lot more to this state than Disney, South Beach and Key West.”

To start, MIA will be serving dinner and happy hour seven days a week starting at 3 p.m. In the upcoming months, look for live music and local artists who will transform the restaurant into a cultural hub.

LoGrasso took on the project with the belief and idea of creating a long-lasting establishment in the community just like his other concepts, Mamma Mia’s Trattoria, Mamma Mia’s Trattoria Express, Mia Dolce Gelato and, coming soon, Every Event Catering. “The unique character of MIA will be a different approach to the dining experience. I wanted to step out of the more traditional scene of cooking and step into a no-boundary culinary experience,” LoGrasso says. “I want to give people what they want and have fun doing it.”

“I am confident the final product will be worth the wait,” Malatesta says. “I always wanted to open a place that doesn’t just serve food. The restaurant will boast a lively dining scene with the open kitchen and contemporary bar. When dining, the guests will be excited to engage with their surroundings. MIA is the place you will come to experience new things and interact with the community.”
