“Restaurant For Lease” sign is up at the long closed Palmetto Bay location many patronized as Romanza. The Quality Inn is undergoing major renovations

This is not a mirage. A “Restaurant For Lease” sign is now up at the Quality Inn, the long time Palmetto Bay location of Romanza.  See my 2017 report: A sad day in Palmetto Bay - Romanza has closed - last day was Friday, April 28, 2017. and Hal Feldman's report of May 4, 2017, Trattoria Romanza Closes.

The public can see that changes are currently ongoing at the Quality Inn and it will obviously include a new restaurant. I am looking forward to a detailed report from our local real estate expert Hal Feldman on the multi-million dollar renovations and what updates we can look forward to at our local Quality Inn.

The Quality Inn restaurant location (as it currently exists) has remained empty since Romanza's 2017 closing, while Romanza eventually relocated near Miami-Dade College Kendall, at 10521 SW 109th Court (formerly College Park Inn) in June of 2018.  More information on Romanza's re-opening is contained in Hal Feldman's report of June 24, 2018: Romanza Rises.

I was fortunate to be among the regular customers who shared some fond memories of Romanza at their closing night of Friday, April 28, 2017.  A great, and sad, evening.  Proprietors Chef Fernando Cortez and his wife Ana Maria ran a very popular restaurant in Palmetto Bay.

Everyone has missed Romanza and speculations/requests constantly arose relating to each and every mixed use development that came before the Village: “Would Romanza be able to relocate there?”

We look forward to see what opens in that location and the overall renovations to the Quality Inn.
