Made in Italy Gourmet is a beautiful deli and wine bar in Miami’s art district. Wine bottles are stacked low and high on long shelves, resting on racks, or displayed in crevices. Large, elaborate chandeliers hang from the tall ceilings and contribute a pleasant soft light. The tables are long and wooden. Appetizing paninis and salads are displayed behind glass.
At this establishment, one can enjoy a glass of wine at the bar or peruse the extensive wine collection and select a bottle followed by a complimentary bottle-opening service. Guests can stroll down the isles of Italian packaged goods, order an Italian sandwich from a delectable menu, or order fresh prosciutto by the pound. Made in Italy is a fresh market and restaurant in one.
The Wynwood Food Tour stops at this rustic Italian marketplace for a pre-dessert tasting. As the tour gathers for a lesson on Italian culture, food, and history, trays of villagio cheese are passed about and everyone takes a slice. This is a semi-soft cheese with a thin and crisp crust. Taking a bite is heavenly. The cheese is rich in flavor. It is a little strong with some sweet notes. The texture is creamy and smooth with a firm crust.
Made in Italy carries dozens of delicious Italian cheeses. They offer platters accompanied by prosciutto, which they offer in its various forms. Here one can find prosciutto di Parma, prosciutto di San Daniele, prosciutto Toscano, and many more.
