In just a few weeks, the highly-anticipated KLIMA Restaurant and Bar, a self described "culinary concept inspired by gastronomy from the Mediterranean and Barcelona" will open on Miami Beach at 210 23rd Street.
Housed in a massive 7,700 square-foot space with seating for up to 122 guests, it will feature two levels – a ground floor restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor dining areas, as well as a second floor members-only club scheduled to open later this year.
Over the past six months, Executive Chef David ‘Rusti’ Rustarazo, together with 'gastronomic advisor' for KLIMA Miami, Albert Ventura and co-founders Pablo Fernández-Valdés and Yago Giner, have been working on a menu filled with Western Mediterranean and Catalan dishes inspired by their Spanish roots.
As the owners told Eater last Fall, the "We're going to start with not a very long menu. Our main priority is to first of all understand what we need to do and deliver quality. We're going to sacrifice having a very long menu and just try to aim to do things well and perform and deliver good quality so the message is well-received by all the customers."
They seem to have stuck to their promise as you can see from the preliminary menu below, which they note is still a work in progress. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below.
