Style File: Summer Deals
Miami Spice kicks off in a few weeks. But some high-end restaurants are already offering some pretty big savings. 7's Belkys Nerey checks out Summer Deals in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- At the beautiful Cecconi's Restaurant at Soho Beach House in Miami, this summer is all about sharing big savings.
Laurent Fraticelli, General Manager, Soho Beach House: "Just like they do in Italy, in the summertime, it's family style. We bring a lot of dishes on the table."
Every Wednesday night, the restaurant hosts a dinner series called "Bring Me Food."
And boy do they!
For $35 a person, the whole table gets a glass of Prosecco, and then three rounds of amazing food.
Laurent Fraticelli, General Manager, Soho Beach House: "We start with the cicchetti, which is the Italian tapas, small plates. We just drop it on the table. You want more, we send more."
The huge feast moves on with several main courses, anything from hearty pastas like grouper ravioli, salads, meat and seafood dishes.
Laurent Fraticelli, General Manager, Soho Beach House: "It's as much food as you will want."
The finale is three dolci, or desserts.
Every week, the menu changes, so you can get a new experience every week.
Laurent Fraticelli, General Manager, Soho Beach House: "Bring all your friends and have a good time, and don't kill yourself financially."
Toast to more big savings at the iconic Forge restaurant.
John Iatrellis, Sous Chef, The Forge: "We're offering a Veuve Clicquot Happy Hour, Every Friday from 6 to 10."
Yep. They're popping open the good stuff.
Bartenders are pouring $10 glasses of Veuve Clicquot champagne, or you can get a bottle for just $50!
While you're sipping on bubbly, the chefs will send out loads of free hors d'oeuvres.
John Iatrellis, Sous Chef, The Forge: "We try to do some of our signature dishes, like our Lobster Peanut Butter and Jelly, our salmon croquetas with spicy guava sauce. We also do fun things, like our fried corn ravioli and lamb spare ribs. We also do a special on lobster: one-pound lobster for $15. It's the greatest deal in town: a bottle of Veuve, lobster, what else can you ask for?"
Summer in the city means big savings for all.
Belkys Nerey: "Cecconi's at Soho House also offers an amazing Sunday brunch feast for only $35. Again, expect a lot of food!"
