Barsecco Has Taken On A New Name and A New Spirit
The restaurant formerly known as Segafredo has taken on a new spirit. It has changed its name and transformed itself into Barsecco. Barsecco is a restaurant and lounge that has revolutionized late night eating, drinking, and socializing . Barsecco offers the best drinks, delicious food, and a live disc jockey playing feel good music from an egg -shaped dome. The dim lights, flicker of color, and edgy furniture sets the mood for what Miami is made for.....lots of fun. The indoor portion of the restaurant has a full bar, eclectic furniture, and a tree making its roots in the center of the room. The outside area is even sexier with its multiple bars, canopy terrace, and sensual Miami scenery making the best backdrop possible for any restaurant.
When my husband and I arrived at Barsecco, we were in awe by the outside dining region. The music was playing and the Miami energy was flowing. The music was low enough to have a conversation, but high enough to feel each beat. It was such a cool spot to hang out with my hubbie. I saw girls partaking in a girls' night, couples on a date, and friends enjoying each other's company. Barsecco captures Miami night life at its finest.
My husband and I started off with drinks. Barsecco has traditional and unique craft cocktails, beers, international spirits, wine, and champagne. I ordered the "Lychee Mojito" and my husband ordered the a traditional mojito. We have traveled throughout Florida and overseas, and Barsecco had the best mojitos that I have ever had! As you all know, lychees are my absolute favorite fruit, so they were already off to a great start.However, my mojito blew me away! It was fresh, crisp, and sweet all at the same time! I absolutely loved the fresh mint that they use. I would make a trip back there just for the mojitos.
Then, for our entrees we ordered the "Barsecco BabySliders," "Truffle Parmesan Fries," "Tempura Maui Tacos," "Bianca Pizza" and "Seafood Platter." The Barsecco Baby Sliders come with three Angus Beef Patties, American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and a secret sauce. They are cute bite size burgers that serve as a great appetizer for one or a shareable plate for a group of friends. The truffle fries are incredible! There is just the right amount of Parmesan drizzled on top and the truffle oil takes it to the next level! The Maui tacos blew my mind! First of all, I'm really not a fan of Maui Maui, but Barsecco made me forget that I was eating Maui Maui because their Maui Tempura Tacos were lightly battered and served with Green Apple Kimchee , Hass avocado, and cilantro. The flavors melted in my mouth, made me close my eyes, and say "um...um....um." The "Bianca Pizza" is a white pizza with ricotta truffle cream, mozzarella, roasted garlic, basil, and truffle oil. It's definitely not your traditional New York slice or even similar to any other pizza that I have ever had. However, it's unique flavors made for a tasty pizza. The seafood platter is an assortment of fish, shrimp, mussels, and octopus. It's a seafood lover's dream. It's not on the menu, but you can ask your server about it. It's enough seafood to serve as a hearty appetizer for the table or an entree that can be shared between two people.
I can't wait to go back to try the "Grilled Water Melon and Black Tiger Shrimp." It sounded so great on the menu, and as you can see it looks amazing! If you've had it, let me know what you think!
Extra information: The customer service is top notch and the staff is very friendly. Barsecco is open from 4 pm until 3 am. It's a great place to enjoy happy hour, dinner, or a place to hang out after you've toured the town.
Would I recommend it: Absolutely! Barsecco is a cool place to hang out with friends or a hot date. The cocktails, music, and late night bites are the ingredients to a great night out!
