Miami Mich Review: Made in Italy

There’s this old saying: 

“Build an Italian market in the heart of Wynwood, and they will come."

Ok, that's not actually an old saying. But it should be. Because it applies to Made in Italy, the latest destination for Italian gourmet goods to hit the Wynwood neighborhood.

If you are into vino, this is the place for you. This restaurant/market offers (literally) hundreds of wines to choose from, all beautifully displayed in a rustic "wine library". Options range from a $10 glass of quality prosecco, to a $700 "special occasion" bottle. Can’t make up your mind? Hit them up during one of their wine tastings, available several times a week.

According to the owners, wine tastes better with cold dishes, so don’t expect any pasta to be served here (brunch being the only exception). Think more along the lines of a platter of smooth pecorino toscano…. paired with thinly sliced prosciutto and warm ciabatta bread. Pecorino not your thing? There are over 20 other fine cheeses to pick from and 18 different types of cured meats. Wanna take some home? Everything is available "to go" at the market, where you can find a nice range of Italian goods including dry pasta, marmalade, olive oil, cookies and other tasty treats.

One thing that is definitely worth trying is their brunch. Available on Sundays at noon, the European style meal includes a glass of prosecco, mimosa or spritz, and a lovely buffet with panini, cheese, cold cuts, lasagna, a live pasta station and bite size desserts, including a nutella and walnut stuffed focaccia that is simply divine. All for just $25 per person. Trust me, you won't find a deal like this in Miami. Or in Italy, for that matter!

Bite size panini, available during Sunday brunch, or full size at any time!
Can't get over the stunning wooden wine library and the Murano chandeliers!
Check out their Enomatic wine dispensing machines!
