As part of the lifestyle hospitality group, INK Entertainment’s “rapid expansion plans throughout the U.S.,” the restaurant will officially open its doors in Miami later this fall.

“We couldn’t be more excited to expand our footprint in South Florida, bringing Sofia to what we feel is one of the most significant areas and desirable culinary destinations in Miami,” said Charles Khabouth, Founder and CEO of INK Entertainment Group.

“Full of energy and mischievous curiosity, Sofia Design District will be the perfect complement to the Miami Design District neighborhood as Palm Court’s newest signature restaurant.”
