Floridian First Realty Brokers Lease for MisterO1 Extraordinary Pizza at Downtown Doral in Doral, Florida

Michelle Gonzalez, the commercial licensed broker of record for Coral Gables-based Floridian First Realty, a family-owned boutique real estate firm specializing in commercial, luxury, and residential properties, announces that it has brokered the 10-year lease for a new MisterO1 Extraordinary Pizza in Doral, Florida. 

The Michelin-recommended pizza restaurant, which is expected to open by September 1, 2024, is located in Downtown Doral, a 250-acre mixed-use community developed by Codina Partners. The restaurant occupies a2,500-square-foot space at 8455 N.W. 53rd St., Suite G101 and it is MisterO1’s first location in Doral.

Gonzalez has also brokered leases for MisterO1’s locations in Aventura, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miramar and Pembroke Pines, Florida.

MisterO1 Doral is corporate-owned by co-founders and original owners Chef Renato Viola and President Umberto Mascagni. MisterO1 uses the finest and freshest ingredients that are locally sourced and some that are imported from Italy. The artisanal pizza is a delicate thin crust style with very light dough, which is prepared and rests for a minimum of 72 hours before being served. 

Raised in Southern Italy, Viola developed a passion for cooking at an early age. By the time he was 11 years old, he was apprenticing with Italy’s best pizza chefs. After winning many awards across Europe, Viola came to settle in Miami Beach under the O1 Visa category, reserved for those with “Extraordinary Artistic Ability” of internationally acclaimed fame. Recognizing that his talent would be the foundation of a revolutionary pizza joint, he opened MisterO1 to create something truly extraordinary.

“Specializing in the retail restaurant sector, I am thrilled to represent MisterO1 to expand across South Florida and play a role in bringing an exceptional culinary experience to many people,” said Michelle Gonzalez. “Downtown Doral, known for its vibrant atmosphere and a special blend of shopping and entertainment options, is the perfect location for this pizzeria that has become synonymous with Chef Renato’s signature 13-inch pizzas that are star-shaped with a pouch of ricotta cheese in each of the eight points.”

Mister O1 brings a fresh and contemporary twist to the traditional pizza scene with an unforgettable experience filled with an array of authentic pizzas, innovative flavors, and a vibrant dining atmosphere. Founded by South Italy native Renato Viola, the brand’s name is inspired by the O1 Visa Chef Viola was granted to begin his new life in Miami.
