An 'Impresaria' in the true sense of the word, Thea loves the magic that happens when you stir together great food, jaw-dropping design and personalized service. Her namesake restaurant,Thea's, is her second successful restaurant in Miami's hot urban hub, having launched the very first restaurant in Wynwood in 2008. In 2012, Thea's opened its doors - one step further into the urban heart of Miami - and there you'll find Thea, each day presiding over abustling, power-lunch scene, and twice a month at her exclusive dining experience -- 'The Supper Club at Thea's'. Known as "the toughest reservation in Miami", The Supper Club has a cult following and months-long waiting list. Thea infused her showplace with sleek, modern simplicity...and daily serves her customers glamour, elegance and great food. Thea's fantastic food and wine plays out in front of the restaurant's breathtaking, 30 foot long, Venetian glass floral mosaic, but, most of all, the fare reflects her love and respect for classic French and Italian cooking. Thea's menu boasts acclaimed, well executed classics and pizza described as "amazing", "best ever" and "worth a drive across the State of Florida!" Thea's food is at once elegant and rustic. With a restaurant that is a complete reflection of her customer driven ethos, Thea designed the space, crafts the menu and oversees the front and back of the house with her fantastic team - chef Diego Flores and pizzaiolo Zachary Zinkand.

What is your earliest memory involving food or wine?
Writing a "recipe book" and not being allowed to include any recipes that involved heat being too young to use the stove without supervision. It is filled with culinary greatness such as my "Banana Starter" and "Grapefruit and Chicken Mayonnaise" and represents the fine gourmet landscape of England in the early 1970's.
