First Taste

First Taste : vista

As a food blogger in Miami, I am always looking to find that secret dinner spot that would be perfect for a random night out or even date night. As it turns out, that spot exists in the Upper Buena Vista area and it goes by the name of vista.

vista is located between the Design District and the Buena Vista neighborhood. vista is Italian cuisine with a twist. vista comes to us from Roberto Bearzi and wife Fiorella Blanco, who are the team behind Italian restaurant Fratelli Milano.

The name vista, which means “view” in Spanish and Italian, is symbolic of the restaurant’s mission to introduce patrons to a new perspective on their more traditional Italian cuisine.

At vista, there is something for everyone on the menu. From charcuterie and artisan cheeses to oysters with mango, mignonette and even a roasted chicken with orange sauce and golden potatoes. One of the standouts that everyone is going to love is the house cut fries with melted raclette cheese.

Check out the full menu here.

The space at vista is also beautiful. There is an indoor dining room, a stunning outdoor patio and a rooftop terrace that is worth grabbing a drink at either before or after your meal. Brunch is also available at vista.

vista is located at 5020 NE 2nd Ave. in Miami.

Here are some of the dishes I had at vista, when I visited a few weeks ago:
