The Alley

By: Rebecca Charur

Tucked away amidst packs of sandy tourists and the neon lights of Ocean Drive is an Italian hideaway. For a minute you'll forget you're on yet another over-crowded, cliche South Beach street when you make the immediate left into the alley just beyond The Betsy Hotel. 

Not only will you find a charming breezeway, but you'll find an equally charming, and appropriately dubbed, restaurant: The Alley.  Since its recent inception in 2017, The Alley has been serving up artisan pizza, creamy gelato, and other Italian themed favorites.

As if this wasn't enough to get me running through the door and eager to sink my teeth into a fresh pizza, they went ahead and announced the launch of their BRUNCH menu.
