Miami’s coming in hot with today’s Dumbo opening of Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill, the wildly popular clubstaurant with food from around the world. The essential southern Florida restaurant joins the new Empire Stores complex in Dumbo, which already houses Cecconi’s and VHH Foods.

Sugarcane first opened in Miami in 2010, scooping up a best new restaurant semifinalist nod from James Beard in 2011. NYC’s menu, from chef Timon Balloo, is similar, reflecting Balloo’s mixed heritage of Chinese-Indian from Trinidad. As the name so helpfully states, there is raw food — including a raw bar, sushi, and crudo — a bar with a slew of rum cocktails, and a wood-fired grilled section. The menu is in full below.

The giant 11,000-square-foot space has a Miami feel, though the real showstopper is the view Manhattan’s skyline and the Brooklyn bridge in the background. There are several areas, including a 2,000-square-foot outdoor patio, an 18-seat bar, and an open kitchen.

Sugarcane is now open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
