Globally inspired small plates come from three kitchens – an open fire grill, raw bar and traditional kitchen – overseen by award-winning Chef Partner Timon Balloo, inviting guests to “kick back, eat well and stay awhile.” Embarking on a quest to celebrate the simple pleasures in life – eating well and celebrating with friends – the restaurant focuses on a “shared experience.”
Since digging its gastronomic roots into the Miami dining scene in 2010, SUGARCANE raw bar grill has become a favorite synonymous with casual cool and innovative cuisine. The restaurant has garnered widespread recognition, having received numerous awards including “Best New Restaurant” semi-finalist by the James Beard Foundation; “Best Restaurant” by Johnson & Wales; “Restaurant of the Year” by Eater; “Best New Restaurant” by Miami New Times; and two three-star reviews from the Miami Herald.
SUGARCANE raw bar grill’s menu ranges from shareable small plates from our three kitchen concepts to more hardy fare with our large plates, including one of Miami’s most crave-worthy comfort food dishes, Chef Timon’s whole roasted chicken with truffle fingerling potatoes and wild mushrooms.
Designed by award-winning architectural and interior design firm Cetra/Ruddy, SUGARCANE raw bar grill’s unique 4,200-square-foot restaurant, 850-square-foot terrace, and private gallery space capture a sense of timeless eclecticism.
The spirited design incorporates the authenticity and warmth of historic Miami with the inspiration of South America’s Colonial Spanish-style architecture. Organic textures, salvaged ironwork, reclaimed shutters, and vintage “found objects” are seamlessly combined with modern design. These vibrant, varied textures along with an overall sense of “openness” contribute to the restaurant’s welcoming vibe, representing the “shared experience” and restaurant’s mantra: kick back, eat well, and stay awhile.
