Brickell’s New Palace of Italian Delights

None 7 Photos Tamarina
So this happened while you were Googling “Rust Cohle costumes”...

Tamarina. An opulent new Italian stronghold of pasta, delicately sliced fish and the flutes of bubbles that accompany them, quietly soft-open as of today and officially opening Monday in Brickell.

Yes, this was Lippi. And yes, it was nice. But you know what’s also nice: drinking champagne and consuming inordinate amounts of thinly sliced fish at a new power-lunch/after-work spot. (See the slideshow here.)

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.
