Tantra is awash in an exotic Middle Eastern decor, with a real live grass floor and trickling waterwall, sensual music and an aphrodisiac-inspired menu.

Their scrumptuous culinary offerings should be described as world fusion- not focused on any one region. And they suggest that you close your eyes so that you can concentrate on tasting each bite, savoring the succulent, sweet, salty, smooth, and crisp flavors and textures.

The atmosphere here is very swanky/chic. I suggest you dress accordingly. RE: men- nice pants, nice shirt, dress shoes & women- a "go out" dress, skirt, cute top, nicer slacks/heels.

I so wish I had a picture of this place... visit their Web site for an idea...

I highly recommend making reservations: (305) 672-4765

Favorite Dish: I started with 'The French Kiss' salad.
Comprised of bibb lettuce and sliced Bartlett pear with French Roquefort, pickled pearl onions and lavender honey served with a pommery mustard vinaigrette

For my entreé: Mediterranean Vegetable Mezze
Which was a phyllo wrapped 'package' of pearl couscous, asparagus and zucchini over spiced sweet roast peppers, baby artichokes and roasted garlic hummus finished with a saffron yogurt

Tim had:
Hot and Cold Asparagus Spear Bouquet
A floral display of roasted parmesan crusted and chilled steamed green Asparagus with fresh thyme infused tomato cocktail and aged balsamic crostini (very unique)

'Rare' seared Tuna and Foie Gras
Upon stewed Beluga lentils, sautéed spinach & diced Asian pears with a truffled foie gras sauce
