Argentina’s Piegari Ristorante, known for its handcrafted, authentic Italian cuisine, service and sophisticated design, is now open in the heart of Wynwood. Like its predecessor in Argentina, this North American location at 137 NW 26th Street, will indubitably become known as a must-try fine dining destination and a premier location for celeb-spotting. The expansion to the United States marks a notable milestone for a brand that has maintained icon status since it opened its doors in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1994.

The Miami location will bring a taste of Italian culinary excellence to Miami’s exciting and ever-growing internationally-inspired culinary landscape.

“This Miami location has been a project long in the works and longer in development,” quips owner Alberto Chinkies in a statement. “We are thrilled that opening day is on the horizon and we can finally treat locals and visitors to the extraordinary dining and hospitality we work so hard every day to deliver.”

Piegari Ristorante seamlessly merges its signature dishes with bold and exquisite flavors with a menu featuring Cold Entrees, Warm Starters, Homemade Pasta, Secche Dried Pasta, Risotto, Fish, Chicken, Salads, Carne e Vitello, Sides and Desserts. Menu highlights include Homemade Pastas such as its Corde di Chitarra alla Carrettiera – guitar string pasta tossed with pomodoro sauce, cherry tomatoes and olives; Ravioli alla Piegari – spinach and ricotta ravioli baked in cream pomodoro; and Fettucini al Nero di Seppia – squid ink fettuccine with shrimp tossed in a creamy lemon garlic sauce and topped with red caviar. Signature Risottos include Risotto Frutti di Mare, a seafood risotto; Risotto alla Primavera with seasonal vegetables; and Risotto alla Ragú with a choice of sirloin or lamb. Main plate specialties include the signature Pollo alla Tutti – organic chicken with onion, red bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, black olives and demi glace; Branzino al Sale – Mediterranean sea bass encrusted in sea salt; Soglioloa – dover sole with mugnaia sauce; Milanese alla Napoletana – breaded sirloin with tomato and fresh mozzarella; and Costoletta alla Salvia – grilled single cut veal chop with sage, shallots and roasted potatoes. Hearty sides – such as Truffle Patate Fritte, Spinaci al Graten (creamed spinach) and Broccoli Aglio e Olio (sauteed broccoli with garlic and olive oil) – round out the menu.

Dessert standouts include sweet and indulgent creations such as Crepés alla Mela served and flambeéd tableside; Vulcano al Cioccolato, a rich chocolate decadence served with vanilla ice cream; Profiteroles made with sweet dough filled with custard-cream ice cream and chocolate sauce; Tiramisu; Flan with cream and dulce de leche; and Fragola alla Lampara – glazed strawberries with ice cream and almonds, among others.

The cocktail program standouts include signature cocktails like the namesake Piegari Spritz with fresh clementine juice, prosecco and house crafted citrus cordial; Flora & Fauna with UNA Vodka, raspberry cordial, Doganale Salvia e Limone, Bonanto aperitif and prosecco; Let That Man-Go with Centinela reposado tequila, fresh mango, ginger falernum, lime juice and agave nectar; and The Slice of Life with Mare Mediterraneo Gin, Doganale Bergamotto, in-house crafted blackberry & thyme cordial and Seventeen tonic.

Thoughtful in its design, Piegari Ristorante evokes a warm and inviting atmosphere where style and sophistication converge. A stunning 160-seat dining room melds natural tones with splashes of color with a combination of seating that includes tables, intimate booths, and spacious banquettes where guests can watch the action unfold in the open kitchen. Blonde ribbed wood paneled walls are complemented by shades of blue, ambient lighting, splashes of greenery and gold accents. An intimate bar, seating 16, features white polished marble atop dark blue wainscoting. Backlit gold shelves, perfectly positioned against stacked brick, complete the look.

Piegari Ristorante Miami is now open at 137 NW 26th Street in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. The restaurant will offer dinner only upon opening with lunch service to follow.
