This weekend is filled with tough choices. Rum or gin? Miami City Ballet or New World Symphony?
But the question of where to eat is simple: Prelude by Barton G. (inside the Arsht Center) opens tonight, letting diners pick any three dishes from its $39 prix fixe menu.
Choose seasonal fare from appetizers (tomato and watermelon salad, bacon and corn chowder), entrees (short ribs, wild salmon with asparagus), or infamous Barton G. desserts (a sundae with house-made cinnamon ice cream and roasted caramel apple slices).
Also on offer: a two-course lunch ($23), an enormous by-the-glass wine list (pours come in three sizes), and an a la carte bar menu. The high-ceilinged space woos with two chandeliers resembling incandescent jellyfish and slatted wood banquettes, where you can dine during one of five seatings between 5 and 10:30 p.m.
Prelude by Barton G., at the Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Performing Arts District (305-357-7900 or preludebybartong.com).
