Elisabetta’s Italian Restaurant Making Headway at Flagler Banyan Square

Local and highly experienced restaurant operator Big Time Restaurant Group is bringing the Italian spice to Flagler Banyan Square’s 10,000 square foot ground-level space. The restaurant group responsible for other local favorites, Louie Bossi’s Ristorante and Rocco’s Tacos, as well as Elisabetta’s in Delray Beach, is opening the newest venue of Elisabetta’s in downtown West Palm Beach.  
Locals and visitors alike will cherish Elisabetta’s presence at Flagler Banyan Square. Located only minutes away from the Brightline, West Palm Beach’s railway system, as well as mere feet from The Ben Hotel and the Oversea Apartments, Elisabetta’s is sure to attract a vibrant crowd perfect for special-events or regular nights out on the town.  
The first Elisabetta’s, named for Big Time culinary director, Lisabet Summa, opened in July 2019 in Delray Beach and was an immediate hit. The classic Italian cuisine paired with the open-air indoor/outdoor concept and prime location contributed to the flagship’s success. Now, Elisabetta’s at Flagler Banyan Square is poised to carry on the legacy at the new waterfront location in downtown West Palm Beach.  
“What’s great about this location, and what helps me sleep at night, is that we are opening a major restaurant in a major pandemic, and we have a tremendous amount of outdoor seating,” Big Time owner Todd Herbst stated. The unique design of this location will allow about 150 people to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the waterfront breezes, while another 130 can dine inside. This open-air concept has always found favor in the South Florida climate, and even more so now as the plan allows Elisabetta’s to serve guests safely during the pandemic.  
Elisabetta’s plans to open in November of this year, just in time for the cooler weather months and increase in seasonal tourists. The Italian restaurant will also be available to cater events held at either the Square or Rooftop Flagler, our premier events spaces.
