Gusto RistoBar, a “neighborhood Italian restaurant and bar’’ has opened in The Shops at Downtown Doral in western Miami-Dade County.
Gusto RistoBar combines traditional Italian cuisine with Latin flavors, with a menu that includes pastas, rustic pizzas, main entrées inspired from Northern and Southern Italy, and an international selection of wines.
“I want guests to feel like they’re enjoying dinner at my house,” said Salvatore Domanti, owner of Gusto RistoBar. “We are excited to provide locals and visitors of Doral with a welcoming place they can indulge in delicious Italian classics.”
The restaurant features an open design room with earthy copper tones, gold and copper accents, rich walnut flooring, and tufted dark leather banquets. Cemented by a black and white collage of famous celebrities and characters, the extensive bar features 34 custom-designed bar stools.
Gusto RistoBar’s menu is divided into various sections including antipasti (appetizers), zuppe e insalte (soups and salads), panini e pizza (sandwiches and pizza), pasta e risotti (pasta and risotto) and secondi (entrees).
Traditional dishes such as Gnocchi Al Forno made with gorgonzola cheese and Risotto Boscaiola, featuring oyster mushroom, porcini mushroom, Portobello mushrooms and truffle oil will balance the fresh dishes with Latin influences like the Burrata Enguayabada, burrata served with a guava sauce and balsamic reduction.
The full bar is highlighted by signature classic cocktails including Negroni, Aperol Spritzer, Mojito and Caipirinha.
