Sexy Fish will be located on the ground floor of the Brickell Flatiron building on South Miami Avenue – one of the busiest streets for pedestrians in Miami.
The owner of the restaurant has commissioned artist Damien Hirst and 92-year-old architect Frank Gehry to design $20 million worth of art and sculpture pieces for the new restaurant, according to the New York Post.
Hirst is designing a 23-foot octopus and a giant bronze wall relief that’s 88 feet long called “Sea Life,” along with a coral urinal for the new Brickell restaurant.
Gehry is creating fish sculptures “that will be floating in mid-air,” hanging from a gold ceiling, along with 26 fish lamps.
The restaurant will have a 21-foot-long fish tank indoors.
Outdoors, there will be a “very special” garden and Koi pond.
In total, the new restaurant will have 10,000 square feet, with 242 indoor seats and 58 outdoor sears.
The opening is scheduled for October.
The owner of the London-based restaurant, Richard Caring, also plans to live in Miami with his family. Caring is a majority owner of Soho House Group, which has a location in Miami Beach.
