New Quinto La Huella restaurant opens today
With hotels in Hong Kong and Beijing, the new EAST hotel (788 Brickell Plaza, Miami, 305/712-7000), and its restaurant, Quinto La Huella, which opens today (May 23), is big news. Sister Uruguayan restaurant, Parador La Huella, is on award-winning lists, so big things are expected of this new venue—the first one outside Uruguay from owners Gustavo Barbero, Guzman Artagaveytia and Martin Pittaluga. Quinto La Huella is on the fifth floor, and along with Sugar (rooftop bar) and Domain (lobby café/bar), this will add some spice to Brickell City Centre.
