Looking for a place to dine and impress or simply get somewhere with your best friends for an afternoon cocktail crafted to perfection? How about a business lunch with an Italian Bento Box for only $19.50 that is just delicious and is served, ready and go in less than 45 minutes so you can be back to the office on time. Someone said Brunch and smooth jazz with oysters and bubbles; think no more...you got it all at one single destination that more than a restaurant is a lifestyle; Tamarina Miami.

Owner Yona Puri who is a taste maker herself and passionated about decor carefully selected each single piece and you can see her personal touch on every angle. Her conception of elegance, impeccable service, crafted cocktails, honest coastal dishes are just some of the many attributes that Tamarina has to offer to everyone who wants to be transported to that Euro charm slash Amalfi Coast 50's glamour that Jacky O' or Sophia Loren will approve.
Tamarina is the place where you could come for lunch and stay, make your business meetings, espressos in between; decadent desserts (shame on me) limoncello why not; emails sent and received; then Francesco Desideri; the ultimate Italian host will recommend some fantastic wines from their rare and interesting wine list that you won't resist, thats why he is Mr. Wishes after all and you will be tempted on an "aperitivo Italiano" with cold cuts from Parma and a selection of cheeses including Grana Padano and house baked focaccia with a touch of olive oil and rosemary.
I was in heaven listening to the band playing sultry jazz tunes for Sunday Brunch while picking delicious deviled eggs topped with caviar or some kumamoto oysters with mignonette and a Bellini served on a vintage glass with VOGA Prosecco and topped with a scoop of house made peach sorbet.
Did I mention no hassle parking with reduced valet with validation on premises or unbeatable happy hour specials during the week? Enjoy your next visit to Tamarina and experience the flavors, the ambiance, the good taste. Cheers!
