Whether you refer to him as Mr. Worldwide or Mr. 305, Miami-born rapper Pitbull will soon have Mr. Restaurateur to add to his list of monikers. The singer's paying tribute to his beloved hometown with a new restaurant, appropriately named iLov305, opening inside the former Bon Air Hotel in Miami Beach this summer.
Though first announced in October, Food & Wine has revealed more details about iLov305, which is naturally located in the 305 area code. Aside from the main dining room, guests to the restaurant-nightclub hybrid can also expect multiple VIP spaces (our hearts are set on the Dale! Room) and four separate bars. The cocktail list runs more than 100 items deep, with many of the drinks featuring the singer's line of 305 vodka. Meanwhile, cigar rollers will be stationedin the waiting room, along with related merchandise. The singer has tapped chef Bryan Ogden for a menu of Latin-inspired dishes: Cubano sandwiches, yellowfin tuna and guava bread pudding, to name a few.
And even though the restaurant's music selection hasn't necessarily been confirmed . . . we think we can reasonably infer what the playlist might be.
