A word from Tamarina
With a slated launch for this fall at 600 Brickell Avenue in Miami, Tamarina will be specializing in Coastal Italian cuisine. The indoor/outdoor space is being designed by David d’Almada of Sagrada in London, and will feature an Oyster Bar and al fresco Champagne Bar.

Furnished with dark wood, brass accents, and antique mirrors and furniture, Tamarina will evoke Italian glamour with a Miami accent – charming and lively, yet relaxed and cozy. Outside, a candlelit, lushly landscaped wraparound terrace will be highlighted by a Champagne Bar and intimate seating.
Tamarina will be a journey of senses. The main dining room will feature Italian-inspired crudos, appetizers, seasonal seafood dishes, premium meats and locally sourced organic produce. An adjacent sit-down Oyster Bar will serve its own crustacean specialties, while the opposite side of the room will be dominated by a sprawling bar and its own menu.

    With high ceilings and great lightning, tamarina has a beautiful setting for any occasion. The wine menu is extensive and their Sommalier is well acquainted with it. The oyster menu is nice (although the service should learn west and east coast difference ie. PEI, BC, etc.). The cocktail sauce was one of the best Ive had and they were shucked well. The wahoo crudo was fresh and delicate. The lobster linguini while very tasty, was over cooked and far past the al dente firmness. The branzino per due was our main course, and I am a firm believer that it is a fish that requires little additional ingredients. When the fish came stuffed with sautéed onions, and a side of cold kale salad, I was a little surprised. Once again, the taste was good, and the fish was well cooked but not what I would expect. Over all I would dine with tamarina again, giving that their backers helped to manifest zuma, and I'm sure they are still tweaking some menu items.

    We work in the building where Tamarina is located and went down for lunch. Three of us had chosen the $18 Riossotto, when the waitress mentioned they had Risotto Special. We never imagined the special was $75 per plate. We were outraged!!!! How can the waitress refer to a menu item as a special knowing the price of our original intented order was $18 and then recommend a $75 dish as a special without so much as a mention as to the price difference. It is situations like this that make restaurants go out of business. I will be sure to tell all my friends in the Downtown area the story so that they chose elsewhere to go for lunch and dinner. Hear me $75 for arbori rice and mushrooms, which was served cold, the portion was small and the white truffles (ehh not that great). We were too embarrassed to say anything to the manager. The waitress comment should have been: We have a risotto with white truffles as a special item on the menu and we are offering that item at $75 per plate. But no, she never mentioned the HUGE price difference, when she knew our original intent was a $20 lunch. So sorry we chose to eat there. Never again.

    We were clients of Lippi... and since Tamarina is the "new Lippi", we decided to give it a try. It happens that Lippi was (in our opinion) one of the best restaurants in Miami. Good service and excellent food. Perhaps this is the reason why we got so disappointed with Tamarina. It is just another restaurant in Miami. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing that does distinguish it from many other restaurants that are in this wide area. Since they are in a soft opening, we hope they will become much better in terms of service.... We also recommend that the music should not be so loud....
