Red South Beach
Red South Beach is moving on from its Washington Avenue location of the last 10 years, but it’s not going too far. Chef and owner Peter Vauthy signed a 10-year, $4.5 million lease for the restaurant space at 801 South Pointe Drive, he told The Real Deal. The new location includes 6,000 square feet of indoor space and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space, a critical component due to the challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, Vauthy said.
Roland Ortiz and Eddy Martinez of Worldwide Properties at One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the restaurant in the new lease. Wolfgang Herz of Fortune International Realty represented the landlord.
Vauthy, a South-of-Fifth resident, said he also brought on a new partner, Aaron Hammer. He plans to open the new location as soon as the city gives the OK, and plans to roll out a new champagne brunch. The restaurant Mira previously occupied the space.
