Miami's Casa Tua Hotel

A casual-chic approach to outdoor dining.

Sandra Rojas-Chinni, owner of Toronto's La Merceria drew inspiration for her café and tableware from this acclaimed Miami hotel restaurant. "I was influenced by their approach to entertaining — it really is the ultimate lifestyle experience," she says. "Banquettes with ticking stripes, white painted woodwork, simple table arrangements, luxurious white linens and menus that resemble family albums. The dining area captivates all the senses in simple ways — that's what inspired me," says Sandra.
