Tantra Restaurant & Lounge

1445 Pennsylvania Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-672-4765

Location Description:

This restolounge's sex-centered gimmickry (supposedly aphrodisiac food, a grass-covered floor, belly dancers, soft-core porn flicks) might be dated, but its perennially packed Monday and weekend club nights suggest there are still many people who want to party like it's 1997. Although some of the sensual stuff plays havoc with the concept of fine dining (DJ music that overwhelms table conversation; incense that overpowers food smells), a few of Miami's best local chefs have made their names here - most notably Michelle Bernstein and most recently Top Chef competitor Sandee Birdsong. Offerings include intriguing specials like goat cheese flan with fresh blackberries and lemon zest, along with predictably lavish classics: seared foie gras; a lobster/mango/avocado napoleon with truffle vinaigrette; and a lux take on surf and turf (filet mignon with Cuban coffee sauce, plus a lobster tail).
