With so many restaurant openings and closings, it’s hard to keep up these days. Brickell has had a tough summer with the closing of Tamarina, Azul, and Coya – but where things close, something is always bound to open. Have no fear, here at Brickell Living we will always keep you in the loop. In honor of that promise, we’re ready to report that there’s a new name coming to Brickell this fall and we know exactly where and when you can get a sneak peek!
Opening this fall, Obra Kitchen Table will be located on the ground level of the Jade at Brickell building, and will serve lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday. Helmed by Venezuela’s most lauded chef, Carlos Garcia, Obra Kitchen Table will feature Latin American cuisine with international influences, highlighting various flavors from Chile, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and Mexico. Obra Kitchen Table will be Garcia’s first stateside concept. His restaurant, Alto located in Caracas, Venezuela has held a coveted spot on the “World’s 50 Best: Latin America” list since 2013.
Award-winning Venezuelan gastronomist and Co-Owner and Executive Chef of Alto Restaurant in Caracas, Venezuela, Carlos Garcia, is making his Miami debut at La Mar by Gaston Acurio with a special menu for a “sneak peek” of his soon-to-launch Obra Kitchen Table. With a combination of edible metaphors and innovative technique, Garcia’s contemporary spin on traditional Venezuelan cuisine is a gastronomic feat not to be missed.
On Friday, August 25 and Saturday, August 26, 2017, during dinner service, the menu will be available in addition to the menu offered by Executive Chef Diego Oka at La Mar by Gaston Acurio. Reservations required for the Obra “sneak peek”. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Voices for Children via Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s annual FANtastic Match program.
