Lippi Restaurant
Following the success of his upscale Japanese Restaurant Zuma in Downtown Miami, owner Tunu Puri is rumored to have spent over five million dollars to create Lippi Restaurant at the Brickell World Plaza Building in Miami’s Financial District. His efforts are breathtaking as the luxurious dining room and wraparound terrace fill with well-heeled diners who turn out in force to sample Chef Philippe Ruiz extensive (and expensive) menu. Inspired by the flavors and techniques of Mediterranean cooking, the kitchen’s culinary offerings meander all over the map with many dishes offering surprising and delightfully unexpected tastes for adventurous diners willing to sample and share over 70 different small plates on the current dinner menu.

The richly-appointed dining room sports golden velvet banquettes, polished marble floors and double-height windows swathed in shimmering metallic drapery. Service starts with steaming cheese puffs and an extensive selection from the innovative cocktail menu or a 350 label wine list. Service is discrete and professional which comes in handy when requesting help sorting out the unique variety of rich international choices crafted by this adept and inventive chef. Another bright spot at Lippi is the technically perfect and deliciously different pastries crafted by Sarah Thompson who adeptly handles bold new ideas and old school classics like an impeccably lofty soufflé. Next time you’re celebrating something special, this Brickell showplace offers the perfect backdrop for a memorable night.
