klimaThis isn't a  Woody Allen remake.  KLIMA Restaurant and Bar  is headed  to Miami Beach, brought by Pablo Fernández-Valdés and Yago Giner, former CEO and COO respectively of the renowned Grupo Tragaluz restaurant group in Barcelona, Spain. The culinary consultant , Albert Ventura,   currently owns Restaurant COURE, Wall 47 and the recently opened El Cercle restaurant in Barcelona.   

The partners are renovating the corner property (formerly Tosca) on Collins Avenue and 23rd Street into a casual 122-seat, 7,700 square-feet,  two levels – a ground floor restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor dining areas, a pergola, as well as a second floor members-only club –    Spanish restaurant concept inspired by their Barcelona roots.  Chef David ‘Rusti’ Rustarazo, from the group’s restaurant “Coure” in Barcelona, , has just arrived in Miami to join the management team.

Together with culinary consultant Albert Ventura, Chef Rustarazo has created a menu of contemporary and international fare inspired by the Mediterranean and Barcelona regions and prepared with local ingredients sourced from premium South Florida suppliers. “Our aim is to install a much-loved Spanish gastronomic ideology within this exciting city to perfectly complement its rich cultural diversity,” declared Mr, Fernández-Valdés.
