Hotel Victor Brings Even More Italians to South Beach With New Menu at Vix
Has the world gone Italian-American mad? And do we have Jersey Shore to thank? We’re not sure if JWoww or The Situation have hit up South Beach yet, but we bet they’d be pleased to hear this slice of restaurant news—Vix at the Hotel Victor has ditched its Indian-influenced menu and gone Italian.
According to Eater Miami, Vix introduced a new Italian menu last week, but so far the only reaction they’ve heard are that some folks weren’t too happy about the change. While the old menu featured tandoori sauces and naan bread, it wasn’t full-on Indian—one Yelper described it as “that quasi Mediterranean/Asia/local SoBe fusion that seems to only work in certain restaurants. (And it did here.)”
Whatever you call it, the old Vix chow was popular, so why the change? As Eater put it, Italian restaurants in South Beach are “as ubiquitous a presence on the dining scene as the Kardashians are on the club scene.”
So far we’ve had no response from the hotel or restaurant. And we’re eager to find out how the $60,000 jellyfish tank plays into the new Italian theme. Got any intel? Drop us a line in the comments below.
