But he may have been onto something, because here’s Canvas, a sexy new dinner-and-cocktails situation with a deep appreciation for art and short rib mac and cheese. It’s now open at the Sagamore in South Beach, and here’s the slideshow.
Some things to consider before your feast:
You’ve got a few ways you can go here.
Inside: a blinding gleam of whites, marble and silver punctuated with a healthy dose of sculptures and paintings. Oh, and you can purchase those paintings.
Then there’s the patio overlooking the pool and video garden.
It’s a garden with two huge screens and a sound system, since you were clearly wondering.
Your plates will be easy on the eyes.
Translation: your dinner presentation will be trying to compete with the art around you. (Here’s the menu.)
That concept will be applied to your short rib mac and cheese.
Also, Wagyu steak frites. And sliders. Yep, sliders.
Your chef is Julia Ning.
Of Station 5 and Khong River House fame.
And here’s what you’ll be drinking.
Black tarragon daiquiris. A blackberry bourbon collins. Watermelon coolers.
On the off chance you forgot it’s summer.
