Here is more information about Tamarina :
According to Urban Daddy :
“The place is split into two halves, separated in the middle by a chef’s table cloaked in long, sheer curtains. Up front: antique wood, leather, Murano glass lighting… and a crudo bar for oysters and freshly prepared tartares and carpaccios. You know, the sort of things that might precede a ribeye-and-pasta-laden dinner.Toward the back: a more casual, café-like affair. A panini and a shot of espresso wouldn’t be entirely out of place here.And coming soon, an alfresco champagne bar on the wraparound patio. Yup, alfresco champagne bar season is finally here. “
According to Miami.com :
“Tamarina will specialize in Italian coastal cuisine, featuring a standalone oyster bar and dining-room menu of crudos, seafood dishes and housemade pastas. Adding to the Ital glam: an al freso champagne bar, international music and ‘of course, flattering lighting,’ the team says. Prices will be ‘gentle,’ they say, looking to draw return guests for lunch and dinner. ” written by Evan S. Benn.
According to Eater :
“Arjun Waney, the investor behind coveted restaurants like Zuma, La Petite Maison and the upcoming London-import Coya, has teamed up with Zuma partners Tunu and Yona Puri to open a new seafood-oriented, Italian-influenced restaurant called Tamarina. The eatery will take over the Puris now-shuttered Lippi. Eater spoke to Puri on what’s to be expected at his new restaurant, what he thinks will lure guests back to the space and more. ‘We have two menus there and two sections where we’ll be serving food. We’ll have the bar café menu and the restaurant menu and we also have the oyster menu. We are basically influenced quite a lot by seafood and Italian. So, first the pricing that will be in the bar café will be extremely affordable, so more people who are on Brickell will be able to enjoy that. The average check will be very reasonable.'” written by Ana Heretoiu.
