There’s the coffee you just polished off. Shakira. [REDACTED].
And this molten ball of goo you’re about to squeeze into a liquid...
Stick with us here.
It’ll all make sense at Elcielo, a curious little South American joint doing some strange and wonderful stuff with your food, soft-open now in Brickell.
This place comes from: Colombia. It’s a big deal down there. On a bunch of “best restaurant” lists, too.
You’ll use it when: you’ve got a real foodie type and three hours on your hands.
You’re here to: have your palate and mind thoroughly f**ked with.
You’ll have: 16 courses of traditional Latin American fare (think: empanadas and ropa vieja) that’ve been restructured to elicit different emotional responses when you eat them. The chef even tested out his dishes with a neuroscience outfit called Mind Code to make this happen.
You’ll drink: gratis wine. For now. Mostly because they don’t have their liquor license yet.
You’ll be playing with: goo. It’s actually one of the courses. Yes, goo. We won’t ruin the rest of the surprise.
You should: take a look at this place right over here.
Oh, and also: make some reservations. There’s only room for 56.
Fifty-seven if you count the goo.
