The Weekly Dish is a TRD recurring feature that showcases the latest in South Florida’s restaurant openings, leases and sales. 

Italian chef and restaurateur Angelo Elia opened its bakery bar in Fort Lauderdale, complete with coffee and wine. Aventura ParkSquare, a mixed-use project being developed by Integra Investments, announced Starbucks signed a lease. And two investors behind the Zuma food and beverage concept are launching a casual chicken restaurant in Wynwood called Le Chick Rotisserie.

Angelo Elia The Bakery Bar just opened in Fort Lauderdale.

The cafe, at 2104 East Oakland Park Boulevard, opened in a 2,000-square-foot space with indoor and outdoor seating. The Fort Lauderdale restaurant will offer counter service and serve pastries, sandwiches, pizza, coffee and wine. The restaurant declined to provide lease details.

Elia first opened Casa D’Angelo, an upscale restaurant in Fort Lauderdale in 1998, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Since then, he’s expanded to the Bahamas and throughout South Florida.

The chef and restaurateur also owns Angelo Elia Pizza, Bar & Tapas, which has locations in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Delray Beach and Coral Springs. The pizza bar is also set to open at Aventura ParkSquare early next year, with two more restaurants planned for Miami-Dade, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
