Located at the member’s only Soho Beach House in Miami, Cecconi’s is the franchise’s open-to-the-public Italian eatery known for its slick styling and late night dining scene in London and LA. Visitors arrive to a far more outdoor-minded space than they’re use to the other locations, lined in a familiar palette of striped green and white floors and signature bar with grand velvet barstools and top-notch class of barmen that serve some of the best cocktails with variety of shaved, cube and block ice. Tables with raw wood tops in lieu of the usual white tablecloths and deco-inspired chairs are almost identical to its sibling locations, adorned with shaded lamps with flowering ceiling twinkling in chunky fairy lights and open-sky that oozes just the right amount of beach club and fine dining.
An all-day menu honed to perfection at previous locations includes patisserie breakfast of homemade pastries, poached eggs on toast and omelet with added bonuses like turkey bacon or black truffles. Lunch and dinner are ordered from the same menu with ahi tuna tartare, grilled octopus with lemon and capers and wood-oven meatballs being the true standout appetizers. Be forewarned, some items do hover on the salty side. Pizzas are derived from a wood-fore oven with goat cheese and black truffle that’s impeccable. Main course includes rigatoni with burrata, Maine lobster with spaghetti, aged meats and ossobuco done to perfection.
Accessed through a private entrance outside of the main Soho Beach House confines, those expecting to access the private member’s lounge upstairs or beach club will be remiss to see the location fully fortified and for cardholder’s only.
