The Italian fare will be closely inspired by the menu at Louie Bossi’s Ristorante, Bar, Pizzeria, which, like Elisabetta’s, is owned with the West Palm’s aid Beach-primarily based Big Time Restaurant Group.

Elisabetta’s is a hybrid of Louie Bossi’s,” explains Lisabet Summa, the corporate culinary director at Big Time and the new eating place’s namesake. “Louie Bossi is [one of] my companions. With the concept of Louie Bossi’s, we do many Italian dishes that I assume could be in people’s lexicon of standards — the best hits of Italian delicacies. We also need to diversify the revel in because it’s far exact. Every restaurant has a one-of-a-kind sense and vibe. The differentiation is essential to us. About 10 to 15 percent may be precise to Elisabetta’s.”

Even the decor could be new and old concurrently. Big TiTimeasically gutted what became 32 East to build Elisabetta’s. The value? Summa demurs, handiest committing to “someplace among the industry average and astronomical.

If all goes per the plan, the eating place will open on July 24.

It’s an older building,” she says. “We had to tear it aside to rebuild it. We used the bones that have been there. It’s the vicinity of the two hundred-seat eating place that is paramount to Big Time, which has regional houses on Fort Lauderdale’s Las Olas Boulevard, Rosemary Square, and Clematis Street in West Palm Beach, Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton, PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and different labels on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach.

It’s a jewel of a vicinity,” Summa says. “We can open the front of the eating place to sidewalk seating. The balcony is up there, and some of the stay-all-right trees. There are lovers and masses of mild, and it’s included. We try to blur that line between the indoors and the outside. There’s a European way of life of eating al fresco. Having that open space … feels proper for the Italian delicacies. It feels appropriate for the type of hospitality we’re looking to convey. It is just beautiful, and the food is easy because it is an actual nod to traditional Italian cooking, a straightforward cuisine.

The focal point of the principal dining room downstairs is a protracted, expansive bar, which the owners hope will help create a buzzy power to the room. There could be a private dining room upstairs that seats 22 humans. It features marble and brass, the front piece imported from Italy via Big Time companion and designer Todd Herbst for an operating fire. It will speak for itself while you walk via the door,” Summa provides. “The furniture and fixtures are so different. It’s transporting.

Sarah Campbell, the London-based fabric dressmaker, designed the dishware.

“I studied painting with her in a category I took during the remaining summertime,” explains Summa. “It became this elegance in a chateau in the south of France. This buddy of mine wanted to go. She said, ‘You speak French.’ So she dragged me, now not that I had to be dragged to the south of France; however, this turned into the primary time was far away from my husband [software developer William Vernon]. We’ve handiest been married five years. Anyway, I took this painting elegance and … Now Sarah Campbell has collaborated with us on the tableware. It’s all combined in one-of-a-kind colorings, giving it a wow and amusing component. I suppose it will be hard to copy.”
