Miamians will have another place to enjoy the city's glorious winter weather when a beautiful rooftop spot opens this Friday, January 11.

Located in Wynwood, Astra will be a combination lounge, restaurant, and bar sitting atop Sette Osteria, which opened about six months ago. Both establishments are owned by IK Retail Group.

Sette Osteria made its name in Washington, D.C., as one of the district's favorite places for house-made pastas, pizzas, and wine for more than 15 years.

With a full-service kitchen and bar, Astra will specialize in Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Menu items include horiataki, a traditional Greek salad; paidakia, charcoal-grilled baby lamb chops; and the Milo plate, a meze platter of fried zucchini, squash, eggplant, and cheese.

The restaurant's main draw will be its stunning 10,000-square-foot rooftop with seating for more than 200 people. Boasting art by Punk Me Tender and lush greenery, the space is gorgeous, but the design will surely be outshone by the views of Miami's skyline and pink sunsets.

Astra. Rooftop of 2121 NW First Place, Miami. Daily 5 p.m. until late beginning Friday, January 11.
