The swank, attractive surroundings; swank, attractive crowd; thoughtful wine list; alluring fare; and countless titillating details make Barton G. a daringly and delightfully different restaurant in Miami Beach. Cuisine here can be whimsical and down-home or tastefully sophisticated — the point is, you can eat any which way you please, from crisped pork shank lacquered with Southern Comfort syrup to togarashi seared tuna with coconut-laced carrot purée. Desserts look like props from Pee-wee's Playhouse, especially the Dolla Dolla Bills Y'All!!!!, a chocolate ganache and dulce de leche tart that comes encased in a gold brick shell of graham cracker crust, soft meringue, and golden nuggets of chocolate feuilletine.
