Taste Tides

There’s a new fish in town, and she’s a great catch! Fresh off its official grand opening in Brickell, Sexy Fish Miami is the brainchild of British businessman and restauranteur Richard Caring, who owns many of London’s most fashionable restaurants. Sister restaurant, Sexy Fish London, located in Berkeley Square in the heart of Central London, opened in 2015 to a crowd as stylish as its Mayfair address, serving a diverse menu inspired by the seas of Asia, with a focus on Japan, in the hedonistic surrounds of the glittering restaurant. Sexy Fish Miami will add bold, seasonally inspired flavors while retaining the signature dishes of the original. The décor aims to surprise and delight guests, with an incredible 10 artworks by Damien Hirst, as well as an installation by Frank Gehry comprised of 26 fish lamps, a ceiling adorned with gold and a giant fish tank, housing live coral and a colorful assortment of tropical fish. A destination bar boasts an ample Dom Perignon selection, alongside Opus One Wines and a hard-to-resist drinks list, as well as unusual cocktails using innovative techniques and Asian influences;
