Developed by the owners of SAMBA BRANDS MANAGEMENT, SUGARCANE raw bar grill is inspired by international influences and South American spirit. The decor evokes Havana or Key West, and there’s a fun and upbeat vibe. Diners rave about the small plates, like the goat cheese croquettes and bacon-wrapped dates.
There are three distinct kitchens: robata, hot and raw bar unite for a fresh take on tradition and a unique culmination of flavor. Embarking on a quest for the simple pleasures of life: eating well, kicking back and celebrating with friends – the concept focuses on a ‘shared experience’ through its tapas style menu: eclectic small plates, artisanal cocktails, and an extensive rum selection. With 4,200-square-feet of interior space, an impressive outdoor terrace, a private gallery, and indoor/outdoor bars – SUGARCANE raw bar grill is the perfect venue for special events.
If the restaurant wasn’t hot enough by itself, imagine what a happy hour adds to the vibe — and, SUGARCANE’s is fabulous. From 4-7 pm, Monday-Friday, guests will enjoy snacks for bargain prices like Marinated Olives or Edamame ($3), American Wagyu Sliders ($5), Shrimp Tempura Sushi Rolls ($6) and Octopus aji Panca ($7). The deals on your favorite liquid beverages are just as tempting — select wine, beer and specialty cocktails are just $7 , pitchers of sangria are $25 and a mojito pitcher is $35When it comes to Miami restaurants, Sugarcane is a success story like no other. Chef Timon Balloo is a cool, culinary renegade, leading a talented team that works the restaurant’s three kitchens to delightful effect. Add Sugarcane’s sweet vibe and we’re betting this will be a big hit — which, admittedly, is a fairly easy prediction to make.
