Eschewing nautical cliches, this restaurant’s contemporary, airy design
with soaring ceilings evokes the Mediterranean theme of its menu. The
entrance imitates the ribs of a ship’s hull, and the exposed kitchen and
market display of fish show the meal preparation. A 12-sq.-ft.-by-3-ft.
white onyx-framed reflection pool is the centerpiece of the dining room,
while a 6-ft.-tall spiraling sculpture of 250 nickel-finished fish suspends
from the ceiling. A massive bottle display with stainless-steel accents
is backlit behind the onyx bar.
