Boca Raton, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Miami Grill, the iconic South Florida-based fast casual restaurant brand known for its legendary cheesesteaks, wings, gyros, burgers and more, announces they have opened a new restaurant on 72nd Avenue in Miami, Florida.
The chain’s newest Miami Grill location is attached to the bustling Miami Convention Center, Miami Merchandise Mart and the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Miami Airport. The restaurant is owned and operated by Grill Creations, LLC, whose three-member ownership team includes Al Lopez, Alex Gonzalez and Fausto Faraldo, all South Florida natives. Growing up in Miami, the trio frequented Miami Grill throughout their youth. “In high school we visited the Miami Grill nearby, and I remember the quality of the food. It was superior then, and still is,” says Lopez.
Mr. Lopez is the business director at SLAM Academy in Miami, where one of the partners of the school is Armando Christian Perez AKA “Pitbull”, who is also a partner of Miami Grill. Mr. Gonzalez and Mr. Faraldo played baseball together for Barry University.

Haar also notes, “The location is only 1,600 square feet and shows how Miami Grill can adapt to a non-traditional space. With all the different formats that we have available, we can open units in a variety of environments. This is a perfect example of our flexibility and capability to grow the brand in a multitude of ways.”
The new location is located at 777 NW 72nd Avenue, Unit 1047 in Miami.
