Grafitto South Opens in Wellington

SURG Restaurant Group currently owns six restaurants in the Milwaukee area, including the original Grafitto. SURG's co-owners, Omar Shaikh and Mike Polaski, have been wanting to expand to South Florida for some time. Polaski, a resident of Wellington for 18 years and an avid equestrian, decided Wellington would be a natural fit for their expansion.
Grafitto South's menu includes favorites like spaghetti alla vongole, made with Manila clams, sausage, fennel, and garlic ($23); and lobster mac with escargots and asparagus ($25). The restaurant is giving away $25 gift cards via Facebook to its Fan Page's 195th follower and every 100th follower thereafter.
Grafitto's executive chef, Dominic Zumpano, who opened the original Milwaukee location, is taking the kitchen lead. Grafitto is open for dinner daily from 4 p.m.
