Gigi: Midtown Miami ingenuity

More Gigi ingenuity: a large, free parking lot. Plus it's open late every night — until 3 a.m. weekdays, 5 a.m. weekends. We should probably admit that owner Amir Ben-Zion, not Gigi, is the one with the brains. He's well known for other partnered ventures such as Sra. Martinez, Bond Street, and Buck15. Just up the block from Gigi is club Bardot, also owned by Amir (thus patrons can shuffle from Gigi to Bardot, from Bardot to Gigi). The restaurant will soon be open for lunch, at which point its location on North Miami Avenue just to the west of the Shops at Midtown should make Ben-Zion look pretty shrewd as well.

What does it mean for a dining establishment to be conceptualized and operated so brilliantly? On a recent Monday at 10 p.m., a flock of patrons was huddled around Gigi's counter. They were waiting for some seats to open up.
