Barton G. The Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Barton G. is an event impresario with a reputation for over-the-top theatrics (like the giraffes, from his own private zoo, that highlighted the restaurant’s grand opening). So it’s almost disappointing that his eatery’s interior---swathed in surprisingly subtle earth tones, along with zebra woods, giant floral bouquets, iridescent curtains and a glass wall---is so sophisticated. We’d recommend reserving in the lushly landscaped 125-seat garden patio, instead; a playground for adults who are not grown-ups, it’s far more fitting as a setting for Barton’s festive New American comfort food. Start with popcorn shrimp served with real popcorn in a paper movie theatre container, or a seared scallop lollipop. For dieters or the humor-impaired, more straightforward entrées are also available, including simply grilled meats and seafoods. You've no choice but to go extreme with desserts, whether it be a DIY sundae containing three pints of home-made ice cream (served in cartons emblazoned with photos of Barton’s chimpanzees), or a shrub-size wad of lavender cotton candy accompanied by popcorn balls wrapped around bonbons bursting with chocolate truffles. All of the above, plus 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.
