S3 Gets Ready to Open its Doors Later this Month

It's been a project four years in the works. Originally slated to open in November or December 2012, S3, the newest concept from the Restaurant People -- owners of YOLO, Vibe, and Tarpon Bend -- is about to open its doors at the end of this month.

Although it's still getting its finishing touches, Clean Plate Charlie got a tour of the new digs from the Restaurant People themselves. Details and menu items after the jump.

The spot has two main entrances: one from the hotel and one directly on the street.

From the sidewalk, patrons walk right into the outdoor lounge portion of the indoor/outdoor bar. The Atlantic ocean is the backdrop to the left. Just above the sidewalk, sits two signature fire-pits juxtaposed by sensual, curvy benches in the shape of an S -- this is a recurring theme in the space, many of the fixtures incorporate the flowing lines of the restaurant's namesake.

The bar sits across from the lounge in the bottom of the hotel: situated directly in the hotel's northern circular outpost. To create a more open feel, all of the sliding doors collapse back, allowing the ocean breeze to flow through the restaurant. The entire space is open to the the outdoors. In a similar fashion to the outdoor space at YOLO, S3 feels very lounge-like. "We didn't want it to feel like a hotel restaurant," said the Restaurant People's Tim Petrillo, "We wanted the space to feel like we just popped a restaurant onto the beach."
