Tutto Il Giorno: Hamptons Favorite to Open in Edgewater

It's a seaside town filled with the rich, famous, and beautiful. No, it's not Miami, it's Southampton. Every summer, 2 percenters flock to tan, drink, and eat at Tutto Il Giorno, the trendy Italian bistro.

The family-owned bistro also has locations in Sag Harbor, TriBeCa, and, soon, Edgewater.

The first Tutto Il Giorno to be located outside of New York will open at the Biscayne Beach Condominium, a new 51-story residential tower at 711 NE 29th St. that just broke ground, with designs by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Thom Filicia.

The restaurant will be helmed by founder, executive chef, and managing partner Maurizio Marfoglia, formerly of New York City's Coco Pazzo, who will adapt the menu to Miami tastes, taking influences from southern-inspired Mediterranean cuisine.

"The overall design palate of our South Florida location will have similar elements to our New York restaurants, but with its own Miami flair," said Tutto Il Giorno partner Larry Baum. "The same goes for our menu selections, which will include dishes from the sea and the Caribbean."

If all this has made you hungry, there's one small downside. Tutto Il Giorno isn't scheduled to open in Miami until some time in 2016. You'll just have to summer in the Hamptons, after all, dahling.
