Lefferts, a real estate development firm renowned for its residential and commercial properties in Miami and New York City, has unveiled a remarkable addition to the Miami Beach dining scene. Roberta’s, the acclaimed Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant co-founded by Brandon Hoy and two Michelin-starred chef Carlo Mirarchi, is making its debut in Florida at Lefferts’ luxury Miami Beach condominium, 72 Park. This marks Roberta’s first establishment in the Sunshine State.
Founded in 2008 within a modest cinder-block warehouse in Brooklyn, Roberta’s became a local icon, captivating food enthusiasts with its diverse menu of artisanal dishes. Showcasing a fusion of local, international, and homegrown ingredients from its rooftop garden, Roberta’s became a resounding success, leading to the opening of multiple locations across New York City and beyond. The restaurant’s expansion includes a range of eateries, from full-service dining venues to casual concepts.
Chef and co-founder Carlo Mirarchi expresses his enthusiasm, stating, “We are very excited to introduce Roberta’s to the vibrant city of Miami. The energy and diversity of Miami’s food scene resonates deeply with our commitment to providing fun and memorable dining experiences for our guests. With its rich cultural tapestry, Miami provides the perfect canvas and 72 Park the perfect home for Roberta’s first step into the Florida market.”
Alongside the renowned restaurant, Roberta’s will bring some popular programming to Miami Beach. Co-founder Brandon Hoy adds, “We love the neighborhood and can’t wait to not only serve this community but also add some Brooklyn charm to the city’s culinary landscape.”
Jim Hedden, Chief Development Officer of Lefferts, expresses excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Roberta’s is the perfect addition to the lifestyle and amenities planned for our luxury condominium. Lefferts is committed to curating products and experiences that celebrate and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors.”
