unspecified-3KLIMA Restaurant and Bar – a culinary concept inspired by contemporary gastronomy from Barcelona – has introduced a unique Tapas style dining concept to its already renowned ideology in true Western Mediterranean cuisine, paying tribute to the traditional roots and heritage of Spain’s eclectic culinary culture.

The Tapas Bar at KLIMA introduces a new Tapas menu comprising of a series of small plates designed for sharing with friends and for those who prefer a slightly lighter alternative to the restaurant’s main menu.  Two stainless steel high top tables, each with a capacity of up to 10 people, are positioned at the front of the restaurant and adjacent to the bar, offering communal style seating – ideal for conversation and social interaction with like-minded food enthusiasts while watching passers-by. The Tapas Bar at KLIMA serves as the ideal “quick and casual” dining alternative to compliment KLIMA’s full service experience.

“We wanted to offer our guests an alternative option to ordering off the main menu,” says Pablo Fernández-Valdés, co-owner of KLIMA Restaurant and Bar. “Our aim was to establish something very authentic that allows guests to experience the true of fabric of our culinary culture.  Our new tapas menu demonstrates the simplicity and origins of our native cuisine, while at the same time encouraging a highly social and interactive dining environment that is typical throughout Spain.”
The Tapas bar at KLIMA consists of a menu of small plates that represent a simple yet diverse range of rich and flavorful delicacies, ranging from between $2 and $22 per dish, showcasing the restaurant’s very best in Barcelona-inspired and Western Medittaranean cuisine.  The new tapas menu includes: Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish omelette) ($10); Patatas Bravas (spicy potatoes in paprika sauce) ($6); Calamares Andaluza (calamari Andalusian style) ($10); Gambas al Ajillo(shrimps in garlic sauce) ($14); Jamon Iberico (Iberico ham ‘5 jotas’) ($16); Croquetas de jamon (ham croquettes) ($2 each); Pulpo al Josper (squid from the Josper oven) ($14); Mini Burger ($8); Pimientos rellenos de mascarpone y miel (stuffed peppers with mascarpone cheese and honey) ($3 each); Tuna Toast ($3.50 each); Veal Cannelloni, ($10); Tosta de Escalibaba (toast topped with roasted vegatables) ($6); Tabla de Quesos (Spanish cheese plate) (Half $10 or Full $20) and Tabla de Embutidos (selection of cold meats) (Half $11 or Full $22).  Wine by the glass will also be available to compliment each plate on the menu.

KLIMA delivers an eclectic menu of seasonal fish, seafood, meats and pasta dishes on its main menu – conceived using a contemporary approach to western Mediterranean cuisine. Popular favorites from the Tapas and Raw Bar selection include Tuna Toast ($19), Jamon & Egg ($17), 5 Jotas Iberian Ham($22/40) and Hamachi (Yellow Tail) Tiradito ($20) as the signature dishes.  A new addition includes the “Josper” Spanish Octopus ($18).  The Fennel Carpaccio ($15) remains a signature favorite on the salad menu, whereas the Idiazabal Cheese Ravioli ($25) has been added as a new signature dish on the pasta menu.

Favorite Iberian Cuts of meat straight from the “Josper” Charcoal Oven include NC Cheshire Pork Ribs ($28) and the Shoulder Tenderloin (Pluma Ibérica) ($36), which is a recent addition along with the Neck Loin ($49).  From the fish menu, the Chilean Sea Bass ($39) has been added to the menu’s signature plates, together with the Branzino ($31) – two seasonal dishes harvested fresh from Florida’s waters.

A unique choice of seven desserts have been created by the resident pastry chef, with favorites that include the Nutella Brownie ($12), Torrija (caramelized brioche, Greek Yoghurt ice cream) ($12) and Passion Fruit Crema ($11).  To complete the meal, KLIMA offers a Regional Spanish Cheese Board ($20) that includes ManchegoLa Peral BluePayoyo and Idiazabal – considered to be the only cheese selection of its kind in Miami.

Select meats on the menu at KLIMA Restaurant and Bar are cooked to perfection in the Josper Oven– a unique charcoal filled oven from Spain that is especially created to grill meats evenly and with a perfect tenderness, resulting in a taste similar to that of an outdoor barbeque. The Josper Oven at KLIMA is only one of two currently being used in South Florida.

The culinary vision for KLIMA reflects the roots of the founders, Pablo Fernández-Valdés and Yago Giner, while combining the very best in local ingredients sourced from premium South Florida suppliers.
