Cool Restaurant Interiors: Sugarcane Raw Bar & Grill

Sugarcane Raw Bar & Grill has received a lot of praise for its food since opening  in Midtown Miami, but there's also something to be said about its unique architecture.

Designed by award-winning firm CetraRuddy, the 4,200-square-foot interior was inspired by South America's colonial, Spanish-style architecture. We love the restored wood floors, wallpaper, antique mirrors, large ceiling fans and walls with peeling layers of paint that give the space a vintage feel. We also delight in the open kitchens and the robata and raw bars, which were custom-designed of wood inset and decorated with colorful tiles. Seating around each bar allows diners to watch the activity of the kitchens.

Bright red, custom-made banquettes add a splash of color and liveliness

to the room where seating also comes in the form of mismatched tables

and chairs in different styles and from different time periods.

There are also 15-foot ceilings, large windows with wrought iron accents, ivy and

the beautiful bar, which wraps from the inside of the restaurant to its

outdoor terrace. These create a sense of being outdoors inside, an openness

that is welcoming and warm yet sophisticated.
