MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Chef Carlos Garcia is busy in his kitchen at Obra Kitchen Table, his modern and bright restaurant on Brickell Bay Drive connected to Jade Residences. The large kitchen table sits smack in the center of the restaurant and was specifically designed to bring guests together.
“The kitchen table has a important place In the restaurant. I think the big tables are important because you can drink a beer, have a sandwich and share with everybody. You can meet new people. It happens everyday,” said Chef Carlos.
The vibe is upbeat and happy, which is evident by all the smiling faces on the huge monitors that hang from the walls. The Venezuelan born chef wants this his first U.S. location (his other restaurant is in Caracas) to be a place of community togetherness and sharing.
