Celeb chef Ralph Pagano (of "Hell's Kitchen" and "All Mixed Up") has got a deal for you.
At Pagano's new restaurant, Alba Seaside Italian, drink and eat all you want for $45 per person. The deal is available 7 to 10 p.m. every Thursday.
The WTF (wine, travel, food) menu, which costs $35 per person, features Pagano's yummy creations such as pasta dishes, fish and meat entrees. For an extra $15, enjoy unlimited pours of wine as long as you eat.
After you're stuffed to the max and feeling buzzed, try your luck with a quick gamble. Pick a number from 1 to 100 at the "Vinny D Split" bingo tumbler. If your number comes up, the entire meal is on the house.
Pagano - formerly of STK Miami and The Village of Gulfstream Park - appears on the radio weekly on the "Paul and Young Ron Show."
At STK, he cooked for stars such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kim Kardashian, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler. Unlike those chefs who fawn over their A-list clientele, Pagano tries to treat every guest with a similar courtesy, and he expects the same from his staff.
"Someone might come in and spend $600, another $30. Really, it's the same to me," he says. "With all respect to the LeBrons of the world, I care more about the person who chooses where they want to eat than the billionaires who can eat whatever they want."
Alba is the perfect place to take someone you want to impress. With its breathtaking views and authentic Italian cuisine, everyone leaves happy.
Alba is located inside the Sole on the Ocean Hotel, 17315 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach. Call 786-932-9305 or go to Albamiami.com
