The rumors are true: Sexy Fish is opening at the newly completed Brickell Flatiron tower.
The Sexy Fish restaurant will span two floors with 35 foot ceiling heights, with 14,432 square feet of space, according to a construction permit filing.
The restaurant’s construction cost is estimated at $1.275 million, the permit states. That doesn’t include the cost of decoration and artwork for the space.
Sexy Fish is known for appealing to London’s ultra-wealthy, according to reviews by The Guardian and The Spectator. Decorations there include fish lamps and a crocodile by Frank Gehry, along with mermaids by Damien Hirst. There are also lavish ceiling murals and Persian onyx marble, with the total cost to build and design the restaurant said to be over $26 million.
In total, Flatiron includes 24,800 square feet of commercial space. It was sold by Ugo Colombo to an investor group for $22.5 million, or $907 per square foot, in a deal that closed last month.
SF Miami LLC filed for the construction permit with Miami’s Building Department last week to build out the restaurant.
