Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Opens South Beach Location

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — It’s gotten even hotter in South Beach! Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, the South Florida-based concept that uses authentic coal-burning ovens to create “well done pizza,” opened its newest location in Miami Beach on Monday, May 12. The restaurant is located at 520 West Avenue just northwest of Alton Road and 5th Street.

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, which includes founder/CEO Anthony Bruno and NFL Hall of Fame legend Dan Marino among several equity partners, debuted its first location in Fort Lauderdale in 2002 and has expanded to 46 restaurants throughout Florida and the northeast. In celebration of the new restaurant’s opening, Marino visited the South Beach location on Wednesday, May 14.

“The sun…the sand…the nightlife. Miami Beach has everything, except good coal fired pizza,” said Bruno. “That’s why I’m taking my talents to South Beach! I can’t wait to share my well done pies and Italian Soul Food with the locals and tourists.”

Hours of operation for the South Beach location are 11:30 a.m. — 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m. — 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. In addition to dining in, patrons can carry out by calling 305-674-8100. A full bar will be available.

Known for its high energy atmosphere and simple menu, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza uses 800-degree coal burning ovens to create a “well done” taste. With a focus on fresh ingredients and authentic recipes, Anthony’s signature menu includes traditional and specialty pizzas with dough made daily and stretched to order; fresh coal-oven-roasted chicken wings; large homemade meatballs from a recipe passed down by Anthony’s grandmother; a classic Italian salad with original dressing; and Eggplant Marino (Dan’s favorite).

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza was voted Best Pizzeria, Best Wings and Best Local Chain in the 2013 Sun Sentinel/Southflorida.com Best of South Florida readers’ poll, and has been chosen Best Pizza by the Miami Herald, Miami.com, Palm Beach Post and WFLA’s iHeart Tampa Bay. The Brand was recently featured in the New York Times and has received rave reviews from Newsday.
