We first reported the imminent opening of the SushiSamba offshoot called Sugarcane Raw Bar one month ago. It was to be an Art Basel affair. Now Sugarcane is imminently debuting in Midtown Miami once more, this time a week from today -- all 4,000 glorious square feet of it, including hot kitchen, robata kitchen for meats, and raw bar. Chef is Timon Balloo, most recently of Domo Japones. We don't have photos of the space yet, but we do have artist renderings; if they ever make a video game out of Sugarcane Raw Bar, this is what it will look like:
