DESIGN
Located in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, the restaurant is a calming oasis with a bright atmosphere and a restrained palette of warm neutral materials. With no door at the front of the restaurant, a sun-bleached boardwalk welcomes patrons to the round zinc bar. Similar to Mediterranean seaside architecture, the walls are finished with textured white plaster and the floor of the main dining room is a sand colored concrete flanked by travertine terraces. The restaurant is filled with extensive banquettes with lush upholstery. Rosemary planters, preserved lemons, spice jars, olive oil, wine and firewood for the grills are scattered throughout the space. In the center of the main dining room is the zinc-clad chef’s counter, which is framed by a working seafood display and wood fire cooking equipment.
