Haute Event: Guests Wine and Dine at Opening of Dolce Vino Ristorante

One of Miami’s best kept secrets for Italian dining, Dolce Vino Ristorante, hosted an evening dinner party on May 25 for 35 of Miami’s honored tastemakers. Being the newest Italian restaurant to hit Miami Beach, the event marked restaurant’s unveiling at the Claridge Hotel.

Demonstrating Italian tradition, guests were greeted with an aperitivo, a glass of Prosecco, while they mingled and listened to the music stylings of Joanna Holstein. Guests also enjoyed an exclusive tasting menu made up of Italy’s most authentic dishes.

Dinner began with Mortadella and cheeses with refreshing Farro Salad. Following, was a Lemon Risotto with Pesto and Shrimp Carpaccio, Roasted Rack of Lamb with Fingerling Potatoes and Red onion Marmalade, and Sea Bass in a Pistacchio crust with a Veggie Capponata. A light, delicious Dark Chocolate Mousse with Orange Shavings ended the cuisine.

The restaurant was lined with fresh flowers and candles illuminating the tables creating a relaxing, intimate environment for guests to wine and dine.The highlight of the evening came when owners Luca Paltrinieri, Andrea Rainis, and Nicole Rainis raise a glass of vino, of course, to their beloved guests and family to thank them for their love and support. Guests who attended included Alan Randolph, Andres Asion, Daisy Olivera & Bernard Garsen, Dana & Gary Shear, Daniela Swaebe, Iran Issa Khan, Jason Inasi, Laura Buccellati, Leonardo Devalos, Pedro Maal, Susanne Birbragher and Vivianne Kurzweil.
