Nestled in the heart of downtown Coral Gables is the ivy-covered Hotel St. Michel, one of Miami’s most historic hotels. Built in 1926, the building still boasts the same vintage European design, reflecting the chic and dashing clientele of that era. In 2017, the inn is adding a dining venue to breathe new life into the charming boutique property.
Opened earlier this week, Zucca is a casual fine-dining restaurant and mixology bar specializing in classic Italian cuisine. The eatery is the brainchild of the Venezuelan hospitality duo Keiny and Erasmo Da Silva of Da Silva Hospitality Group. Already holding elite status in the dining industry, the group will finally open its first restaurant in the States after more than 60 years in business.
