Bienvenue à SOMI
From southwest France vineyards to pizza, chicken and waffles in Miami.
New SOMI restaurateurs Dominique & Aurelie Bartschies acquired La Pizza and Sunset Yard over a year ago, however with COVID-19 international travel restrictions in place, they were recently finally able to come to Miami. The couple had sold their four generation’s fifteen acres of vineyards and holdings in Aquitaine Gironde to forge a new life in Miami with their teenage boys, dog and cat.
They acquired the popular La Pizza with its expansive courtyard garden seating and attractive family-friendly interior dining area. A new concept “Chickn’Cone”TM will be coming shortly and yet another concept will be developed for the site as well. To prepare them for their new venture, in August the couple studied at L’Ecole Francois d’pizza, a renowned culinary school. La Pizza’s recipes will remain the same as with former operator Julian Mus who started LaPizza.
