Elisabetta’s restaurant opens on West Palm Seaside waterfront

Elisabetta's restaurant opens Tuesday, Jan. 12, on the West Palm Beach waterfront. It is the second location for the Big Time Restaurant Group concept.

When Lisabet Summa and her associates at Massive Time Restaurant Team opened Elisabetta’s in downtown Delray Seashore in the summer of 2019, she took inspiration from her travels in Italy and her monumental cookbook selection. She tapped into the heritage of her Italian father, whose want of naming her Elisabetta at delivery was dashed by far more Americanized minds in the relatives. 

At the time, Summa knew opening any fantastic-dining spot all through the off-season had its problems in a seasonally driven space. But now, as she and her companions open a second Elisabetta’s cafe in downtown West Palm Seashore Tuesday, people difficulties seem quaint. Main up to this new debut, her thoughts ended up eaten by matters a lot more timely than culinary inspiration.

What a distinction 18 months and a pandemic make. 

“Everything is diverse because of COVID — the entire issue has turned the field on its head,” suggests Summa, who is Significant Time’s corporate culinary director, foremost the kitchens at the group’s seven restaurant ideas. (They are Metropolis Cellar, Rocco’s Tacos, Louie Bossi’s, City Oyster, Grease, Huge Town Tavern and Elisabetta’s.)
