Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2009
Cane Fire Grille, the sizzling new Miami Latin restaurant (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-information/restaurant/miaap-miami-airport-marriott/) sensation, opens at the Marriott Miami Airport hotel (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/miaap-miami-airport-marriott/) with a colorful mix of flavors, sounds and textures that will entice the taste buds. Chef Joe Natoli is putting his unique spin on the internationally inspired menu at the West Miami Latin restaurant, which he says, "blends a healthy dose of Florida Cracker on a Native American foundation, sprinkle in the Caribbean islands, add a dash of South America, a shake of Central America and the exotic touch of Cuba to give you the flavor of South Florida." Of course, it is all served with distinctive Miami flair.
Originally from New Haven, CT, Natoli is a graduate of Johnson & Wales, and has worked his way up the culinary ladder at various restaurants in the New York City area before studying and traveling through the Mediterranean. His extensive background includes spending time training in Tuscany, studying the art of wine making, and mastering the various regional cuisines.
