Barton G. The Restaurant Restaurant Review: Barton G. is an event impresario with a reputation for over-the-top theatrics (like the giraffes at the restaurant’s grand opening). The interior of the eatery is subdued with giant floral bouquets, iridescent curtains and a glass wall. We’d recommend reserving in the lushly landscaped 125-seat garden patio playground where adults who have not grown up can enjoy Barton’s festive comfort food. Start with the bucket of bones with ribs, lamb chops and chicken drumette and apple barbecue sauce, or the lobster pop tart. Expertly grilled steaks and seafood are other options. The night circus ends with big top cotton candy and truffle-stuffed popcorn balls. All of this along with a wine list stocked with boutique California vintners (and Barton’s own wines, a Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc that leave standard house plonk in the dust) have made Barton G. one of South Beach's most delightful dining destinations.
