Hard Hit by Hard Hats, the Village Cafe is Back in Miami Shores

Construction on Northeast Second Avenue in Miami Shores has jack-hammered just about every biz on the street, which is now a collection of For Rent signs along with a bank, a Subway and not much more. 

The Village Cafe, with its weekend music, fine wine and pretty good food, was a casualty. It already had problems. A former owner was whacked for coke. But it survived that.

And as of three weeks ago, this nabe fave has again shown resilience, rising above its Scarface-style past to reopen under new ownership, former GM Massimo Delucca (also of Tiramesu on Lincoln Road,) and Ray and Sandra Perez.

Continental cuisine from chef Adam Holm includes wraps and sandwiches for lunch, with a more upscale dinner menu that includes pizzas, pastas, meats (including New York strip, fillet minion) and fish.

They're in the process of building a website where you'll be able to find the menu in the future, but for now, you got the number here first folks (the old ones are still in all the listings...)  Give 'em a buzz for more information.
