Last November, Giorgina made its Wynwood debut, a swanky Italian super bistro from the Mexico City based hospitality firm Grupo Mandolina. Inspired by the relaxed glamour of the Amalfi Coast, the 4,500 square foot space features romantic, cream and yellow tinted décor, large arched windows, and a vine enveloped ceiling brimming with more than 5,000 fresh lemons. Executive chef Hector Caspio’s menu leans classic, but a closer look reveals a few creative surprises: shrimp scampi is spiced with Calabrian oil, for instance, while a 14 oz aged rib eye is rubbed with rosemary and sea salt.
