Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Tuscan Prime, one of the newest restaurants on Las Olas Boulevard, is having a special grand opening celebration on Wednesday, September 18. A ribbon cutting ceremony, performed by Mayor Dean Trantalis, will kick off the event at 3 p.m. and an afternoon filled with live music and champagne toasts will follow. Tuscan Prime, The Monte Restaurant Development Group’s latest venture, is located on Las Olas Boulevard at the corner of South E. 5th Avenue amongst some of the leading restaurants in South Florida. The Monte Restaurant Development Group is looking forward to hosting an elevated event to officially welcome Tuscan Prime to the boulevard.
Tuscan Prime’s grand opening on September 18th will be hosted throughout the restaurant and will showcase live music by singer/pianist John Boiko, and saxophonist Alex Dean. Following the ribbon cutting the bar will kick off the best happy hour offered on the boulevard. Branded giveaways as well as passed hors d’oeuvres and champagne will be served.
“From the food to the design, Tuscan Prime is chic and trendy yet rustic and comforting. A place where you can feel comfortable holding a star-studded event or just a night out with friends. We are universal. A destination location or a neighborhood eatery. Our favorite décor are the people who join us,” says Donna Richards, General Manager of Tuscan Prime.
Tuscan Prime is a restaurant that truly has it all. Starting with an agenda of “Prime Happening’s,” they host a new theme each day of the week. With live jazz brunches on Sundays featuring unlimited mimosas, Bellini’s & Aperol spritzes, three-course prefix dinners for $38 on Wednesday’s with a new menu each week featuring the flavors of Italy, and a Christian Louboutin raffle every Tuesday for Ladies Night, there is something for everyone.
When you enter into Tuscan Prime, you are enchanted by the Olive Tree Lounge encrusted with hanging lights and crystals, giving the true feeling of being under the Tuscan moon. Every inch of the restaurant is perfectly executed and inviting from the handmade floor imported from Italy to a hand painted design starring Dorotea Mercuri, the hottest model in Milan. The mezzanine overlooks the dining room, bar and lounge and is the perfect space for private events such as cocktail hours, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and business luncheons.
Tuscan Prime’s menu is the ideal combination of Italian classics, prime cuts, and modern cuisine. Highlights feature an extensive weekend brunch menu and a prime happy meal that is perfect for the elevated diner. Skip the toy, and enjoy a delicious burger paired with truffle fries and a split of Moet. Entrees include a Lamb Ossobuco with fresh gnocchi, pistachio encrusted tuna, and a prime bone-in ribeye that is paired with a sauce trio of Brunello reduction, creamy horseradish, and bearnaise. Entrees range from $18 to $124 making it accessible to all diners and the perfect fit for any occasion.
