Alpareno Restaurant Group Receives Michelin Bib Gourmand Award

The hospitality company was founded by Chef Niven Patel and Mohamed “Mo” Alkassar.

The Alpareno Restaurant Group’s Ghee Indian Kitchen in Kendall has been honored with a second Michelin Bib Gourmand. The Michelin Guide created the award in 1997 to distinguish good restaurants offering refined cuisine at an affordable price. 

Chef Niven Patel and Mohamed Alkassar collaborated to create the Alpareno Restaurant Group, which has several restaurants in Miami, including Mamey and Orno in Coral Gables. Their latest venture involved collaborating with Tripping Animals Brewery to create a new beer inspired by Alpareno, which they named The Forager. Alpareno Restaurant Group also developed a unique tequila blend in partnership with Maestro Dobel, which will soon be available at Orno and Mamey. The limited-edition tequila will debut in the summer of 2023, which is when Niven and Alkassar will also launch their new restaurant concept, Erba, in Coral Gables.

A five-time James Beard Award nominee, Patel has been recognized as one of Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs of 2020. His Rancho Patel site is a two-acre home and farm located just up the road from some of his most popular restaurants, where Niven chooses the fruits, vegetables and herbs for each season based on what he wants to grow and see in his restaurants. Stand-out new menu additions include Carrot Parmesan Agnolotti at Orno, a Mango Farro Salad at Mamey and more.
