L’Originale is Florida’s first Segafredo brought from Italy in June 2000 and the second to be established in the United States. The original 1988 franchise, Segafredo Zanetti Espresso, developed its roots from the great and passionate work of an Italian coffee merchant, Massimo Zanetti. At the Lincoln Road location, the main goal is to keep this historic spirit alive by providing magnificent Italian coffee, cocktails, and Italian bites accompanied by a unique atmosphere. Eighteen years ago, when Segafredo first opened, it was a meeting place for Italian immigrants. This was a cultural hub for people looking to have a piece of their homeland; so much so, that the primary language spoken was Italian. As it evolved, Segafredo’s unique character attracted guests and locals from all over the world.
Segafredo L’Originale is introducing new menu items that embody the Italian tradition. For the Antipasti section, the additions are Melanzane alla Parmigiana (Eggplant Parmesan), Asparagi Uova e Pancetta (asparagus wrapped in bacon with egg), Baccala alla Vicentina (Vicentina-style codfish over polenta), and Mozzarella Fritta (Fried Mozzarella). They also have two new salads (Pescatore and L’antica) and brought back two Panini favorites, Norvegese and Pulcinella. Besides their extensive cocktail selection, guests can always find a dish to pair it with while enjoying the ambiance on Lincoln Road.
