Two of our favorites, Sheba Ethiopian restaurant in the Design

District, and Le Bon on Lincoln Road, called it quits last week. Prime

Italian, from the Prime One Twelve folks, opened its' doors across the

street from its' sister steakhouse. Barton G secured the concessions at

the Adrienne Arscht Center For The Performing Arts, and will be

debuting two restaurants there later this year. As inventive as Barton

G. Weiss can be, he's going to have to work awfully hard to top this:

Chef/owner Craig Carlino's Hot Tuna, an Asian-fusion "theatrical

restaurant experience", opened earlier this week at 764 Washington

Avenue. Here is the description: "Every 90 minutes, a large projection

screen will display a water-color painting that comes to life and

signals the show to start with the strike of a gong. The screen then

disappears into the ceiling, revealing a 'runway' on the bar which

professionally trained servers will use as a platform to perform

choreographed three-minute dance numbers to popular rock 'n' roll

tunes, including hits by Def Leppard, AC/DC and Bon Jovi." And,

presumably, by Jack Cassady and Jorma Kaukonen (First Pull Up, Then

Pull Down being one of the all-time great blues/rock albums) -- or does

Hot Tuna refer to a menu item? We don't have any photos of the cuisine,

but we can leave you with a shot of the "Hot Tuna Girls":

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
