The fire occurred at 400 NE 67 Street in Miami's Upper Eastside neighborhood and reportedly sent up millions of dollars worth of Barton G's goods like linens, furniture, and a commercial washer in flames.
Barton G's new restaurant, Prelude, opens to the public Friday at the Arsht. The restaurateur, famous for creating visual spectacle, told a Herald reporter ``There may be a giraffe or two at the party Thursday. I just have to convince the Arsht it's OK for them to eat these trees."
