Brickell’s New Sexy Fish Restaurant Will Have $20M Worth Of Art By Damien Hirst & Frank Gehry

Construction is underway on an elaborate new restaurant in Brickell called Sexy Fish that will include $20 million worth of art.

Sexy Fish will be located on the ground floor of the Brickell Flatiron building on South Miami Avenue – one of the busiest street for pedestrians in Miami.

The owner of the restaurant has commissioned artist Damien Hirst and 92-year-old architect Frank Gehry to design $20 million worth of art and sculpture pieces for the new restaurant, according to the New York Post.

Hirst is designing a 23-foot octopus and a giant bronze wall relief that’s 88 feet long called “Sea Life,” along with a coral urinal for the new Brickell restaurant.

Gehry is creating fish sculptures “that will be floating in mid air,” hanging from a gold ceiling, along with 26 fish lamps.

The restaurant will have a 21-foot-long fish tank indoors.

Outdoors, there will be a “very special” garden and Koi pond.

In total, the new restaurant will have 10,000 square feet, with 242 indoor seats and 58 outdoor sears.

Opening is scheduled for October.

The owner of the London-based restaurant, Richard Caring, also plans to live in Miami with his family. Caring is a majority owner of Soho House Group, which has a location in Miami Beach.

To some form of law and order. Homeless left roaming the city like it’s the season finale of the Walking Dead. They shout drugs in plain daylight on the streets and in the parks. It’s syringes everywhere!!! The police stands back for fear of repercussion so they just let crime happen and then catch the criminals later. It’s a mess!!

NYC could use four years of Curtis Sliwa. We have plunged into the hellscape of the Dinkins years. I was just in NYC this weekend and watched a guy smash a Post Office truck window on my way to Sunday brunch. Never saw anything like that in two decades of residence in Manhattan. Why? Because there were consequences. Now there aren’t.

Friend,

Have you noticed that the Radical Left is now admitting I was right about everything they LIED about before the Election?
Hydroxychloroquine works.
The China Virus came from a Chinese lab.
Hunter Biden’s laptop was real.
Lafayette Square was not cleared for a photo op.
The “Russian Bounties” story was fake.
We did produce vaccines before the end of 2020, in record time I might add.

Another expensive, loud restaurant to throw your money around anywhere but on food into your stomach. I’ll give it 18 months tops before its closed for renovation. Brickell is not what it used to be. Ocean Drive has moved west and they ain’t spending money.

A new survey out of North Dakota State University (NDSU) discovered that the majority of liberal-minded college students are not proud to be American.

The survey was released by NDSU’s Challey Institute for Global Innovation and Growth and focused on the role that colleges are playing in promoting free speech and tolerance of diverse views. In one section of the survey, students across the country were asked whether they were proud to be Americans.

57 percent of liberal students said that they are not proud to be Americans, while 73 percent of conservative students said that they are. The majority of “independent/apolitical” students, 59 percent, said that they are also proud to be Americans.

The survey also found that students with more conservative viewpoints are less likely to perceive a college classroom as a climate that is open to diverse points in comparison to their liberal counterparts.

66 percent of liberal students reported that they “feel comfortable” sharing their opinion on a controversial or sensitive subject during classroom discussions. 58 percent of conservatives said that they do not feel comfortable.

Only 11 percent of students said that their college classes gave them a more positive view of the U.S., while 45 percent said that they gave them a negative view. A plurality of students, 44 percent, said that they have a negative view of capitalism. When broken down by political ideology, 61 percent of liberal students said they have a negative opinion of capitalism.
