The place serves three meals every day, with snacks in between and there's even a room for a fourth meal (8:30 a.m. to midnight). You can start breakfast with a croissant and espresso, and end your night with fennel gratin or crispy calamari. Console suggests the tuna tartare, chicken milanese, and, of course, the pastas. If organic is an option, Console will use it. All of the olive oil is real Italian, Console emphasizes, using "Italian olives."
Console plans to organize events with artists and outside chefs to create theme nights. If the place introduces an artist from Cuba, for example, it will cook Cuban food that night in addition to the Italian. Fiamma hopes to receive its beer and wine license this week.
This is a place for locals as well, so Fiamma is offering a 10 percent discount. Delivery is available on South Beach. Don't let the address confuse you -- it's on Española, but on the east side of Washington at 224 Española Way, Miami Beach.
