What: Tamarina 600 Brickell Avenue, Miami, Florida 33131
Why: Glamour and sophistication have never tasted so good. Tamarina doesn’t just specialize in Italian Coastal Cuisine, it’s perfected the art of pampering its diners to the “nth” degree. The beautiful, chic, inside/outside restaurant has a warm and rich atmosphere and its food is simple, delicious and clean. I adored the tiger prawn carpaccio. It was so tasty, I was ready for another round. Speaking of…
When you sit at the main bar (they also have a standalone oyster bar and a champagne bar) ask Magic (yes that’s his real name) to make you a dirty martini. It has to be one of the best drinks I’ve ever had in the “Magic” City. It was so smooth, I felt like Marlene Dietrich throwing one back with Gary Cooper in the 1936 movie, “Desire.” This place is regal, romantic and has really great raw fish.
Where: Tamarina is located in Brickell where Lippi used to be. Parking can be a challenge, but on the West and North side of the restaurant, there’s affordable valet.
When: Monday-Friday 12pm-11:30pm, Saturday 6pm-11:30pm/the bar is open until 1am, closed on Sunday.
