Take a Peek at Juvia
This weekend, you’re pulling off a heist.
It’s simple. You’ll break into a discreet building on South Beach. Sneak up to the penthouse. And help
yourself to all the oysters you can handle.
Actually, correction: you can just go through the front door...
, a new penthouse oasis for briny mollusks, Peruvian cocktails and choice date-night
wooing, opening tomorrow.
Now, it takes some work to find this place. Head to Lenox. Keep an eye out for a wall bathed in majestic
purple light. And then you’re there (or you’re at a Prince concert).
Take the elevator, which opens directly to the penthouse lobby
probably notice the plant wall. That’s because it stretches from the entrance to the dining room. And
because it’s 22 feet tall.
This is exactly where you’ll cozy up with a date on the month’s most romantic holiday (Presidents’
Day). Get one of the oak tables and order up something called the Purple Rain
—a vodka drink made
with purple Peruvian corn (and a sign that maybe you are
at a Prince concert after all). The menu:
exactly what you’d expect from the Boulud and Nobu alums behind this place (think pork confit, hamachi
Oh, and if you return when the skies aren’t threatening a monsoon, there’s a good chance they’ll open
the retractable roof at the bar.
So basically like Marlins Park.
