Snacks priced at $3 to $6 will include such dishes as bacon toast, duck spring rolls, and Bloody Mary bruschetta, while the raw menu ($8 - $16) will offer dishes like a hamachi crudo with yuzu, olive oil powder, wasabi and scallion, as well as a cured Tasmanian ocean trout with scallops, hearts of palm, and preserved Meyer lemon. Lovers of carpaccio will fall in love with Chef Stojanovic’s Wagyu carpaccio with artichoke, crispy fennel, ponzu, and truffle oil.
The “small” menu ($8 - $18) will offer such tantalizing specialties as a warm veal rillettes with a slow-poached duck egg and pickled horseradish served with toast, as well as crispy snapper “wings” with Vietnamese bok choy salad. Asian influences are repeated throughout the diverse menu, especially in TIKL’s Japanese double robata grill offerings ($6-$18) that include such items as Korean skirt steak with citrus soy, kimchee and scallion, as well as a more European-inspired vegetarian dish of eggplant with Romesco sauce.
Make sure to save room for some of Pastry Chef Michelle Cabrera’s innovative desserts like her robata grilled peaches served with a jasmine reduction, bruléed vanilla bean pound cake and caramel ice cream. Claudio Giordano, who has had several decades of experience curating impressive wine collections at his various restaurants, has also carefully chosen a wine list with offering that will pair beautifully with TIKL’s globally-inspired menu.
To celebrate the restaurant's grand opening, a portion of all proceeds today will go to Share Our Strength, an organization that is putting an end to childhood hunger in America. As if that were not reason enough to check out TIKL today, the restaurant is also participating in Miami Spice with prix fixe lunch menus for $19 and dinner menus for $33.
