Fantastical art, architecture and a touch of theater abound at Sexy Fish in Brickell, the new sister restaurant to the lauded Japanese seafood eatery in London.
Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the restaurant’s contemporary interiors are influenced by the style and sophistication of a midcentury brasserie. Along with an illuminated agate floor, oak wood panels with smoky mirror inserts and a bar crowned with pink onyx, patterns and motifs of the ocean imaginatively intermingle.
The restaurant’s most eye-catching feature is an installation by Frank Gehry, starring 26 fish lamps that shimmer above the bar and float around a giant waterfall column.
Other design standouts include 10 Damien Hirst friezes and sculptures—like the resin octopus coated in broken crystal glass, diamond and metallic flakes that hangs above the DJ booth—and a live coral fish tank that stretches across an entire wall.
