MDM Development LLC announced today that it has signed a lease with Red O, a world-class-relaxed destination resort environment that provides distinctive Latin-Mexican inspired exquisite cuisine and discerning service in a lively, sophisticated setting.
The first Red O location outside of its California home, the highly acclaimed restaurant will be located on the ground floor of Metropolitan Miami’s Met Square, which is currently under development and located at 340 SE 3rd St.
The 7,000 sq ft square-foot facility will feature in-door as well as outdoor patio seating, along with an expansive and polished bar and lounge area. It is slated to open in the summer of 2017.
Red O currently has locations in Los Angeles, Newport Beach, Santa Monica, and La Jolla, California.
“We are very excited to soon have the first Red O outside of California within the Metropolitan Miami development,” said Jason Miranda, Chief Operating Officer. “Downtown Miami has transformed into one of the country’s most desirable urban destinations. The city offers a culinary scene that can only be found in the one-of-a-kind city, which we appreciate as a remarkable blend of authentic Latin ingredients flavors and attitudes, all of which we incorporate into our food and drinks.”
Red O’s unique cuisine is a distinctive blend of authentic and seductive Latin and Mexican Flavors with a blend of world class steak and seafood.
