Fronted by a cozy lounge and sushi bar, Mandrake Miami reveals its sexy and dimly lit main dining room and bar, with al fresco seating in a French-Indochine oasis, via a short passage draped in heavy velvet curtains.
The restaurant serves refined Japanese sushi and cuisine in a club-style dining room decored in rich Christian LaCroix floral fabric chairs, Chinese lacquered woodwork, and jungle mural walls depicting tropical landscapes.
Along with a special prix fixe three-course dinner menu, Mandrake Miami recently debuted a new summer menu of French-Asian inspired cocktails.
