South Florida restaurateur Stefano Frittella recently purchased The Bevy restaurant and bar in downtown Naples from the Hoffmann Family of Companies. The Bevy, 360 12th Ave. S., is temporarily closed, but Frittella plans to reopen the local restaurant by the end of June. “It’s going to be the same concept, the same name,” says Frittella, who is bringing in a new chef from New York City. In addition to operating many restaurants in Miami Beach, Frittella is a partner in four Naples restaurants on Fifth Avenue South: Bice Ristorante, Caffe Milano, La Trattoria and Vergina. Hoffmann purchased The Bevy two years ago from Adam Smith, a Naples redeveloper who launched the restaurant in August 2017 with New American cuisine and craft cocktails.
