Now open in the heart of Coral Gables, Seasy serves up healthy seaside Mediterranean fare and traditional Italian cuisine for brunch, lunch and dinner. A combination of the words “sea” and “easy,” Seasy is bringing the fresh seafood and laid-back atmosphere of the Mediterranean coast to South Florida.
The vision of owner Giovanni Maglione and his business partners, Seasy is the first U.S.-based restaurant endeavor for the Made in Napoli Hospitality Group which originated in Naples, Italy. When searching for a location in Miami, Maglione and his partners sought out a venue where they could recreate the atmosphere of a Mediterranean seaport and where diners could feel at home. Coral Gables’ Miracle Mile offered the perfect place to launch Seasy, and create a dining destination for patrons looking to enjoy and appreciate a healthy meal in a cozy and tranquil atmosphere.
“When speaking to my family about Coral Gables, I compare the neighborhood to Vomero and Posillipo, two prominent hillside areas of Naples known for their seaside landscapes and affluent crowds who enjoy la dolce vita and eating very well,” explains Maglione.
Incorporating mosaic tile design and Mediterranean colors echoing the blues of the sea and sky, Seasy’s interior currently seats 55 to allow for social distancing while the outside patio offers al fresco dining with 10 seats overlooking the picturesque Miracle Mile, one of South Florida's most sought-after shopping destinations.
