FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- South Florida's award-winning marketing and public relations agency The Gab Group, has been retained to launch Tundra, the nation's first ice-themed dining concept opening November 23 at Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. Conceptualized by David Berman, founder of Deerfield-based Sculptured Ice Creations and noted Restaurateur Alex Podolny, this striking 2,820 square-foot restaurant features indoor and outdoor dining amidst abstract ice-art sculptures that change nightly.

"Tundra at Las Olas meshes culinary adventure with striking ice-art accents to enhance one's dining experience. Their superb menu offerings, attentive hospitality and innovative setting will be a welcome addition to the Fort Lauderdale dining scene," says Michelle Soudry, Founder of The Gab Group.

With sophisticated interiors inspired to mimic the earth's natural tundra, striking design elements include ten eight-foot chandeliers set in a cathedral ceiling that lend the illusion of icicles, glistening white onyx at the bar and community table, and an "ice mountain" partition separating the dining room from the bar. Nightly full-size ice sculptures at Tundra include abstract designs to vases, crystal rose globes, ice fishbowls with high-profile synthetic fish and coral and ice wall sconces.

Executive Chef Bryan Lamblin, formerly of Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club and the Ritz Carlton, presents a straightforward menu of globally-inspired fare. Guests can embark on the signature 'Tundra Taste Tour,' offering small-plate options of 16 menu items, including Kobe beef meatballs, ceviche, potato-crusted black grouper, and butter poached lobster, for $59 per person.

Tundra will be open from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Monday through Thursday, with late hours on Friday and Saturday. Tundra is located at 1017 East Las Olas Boulevard in Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301. For reservations, please contact 954-761-2122 or visit www.TundraRestaurant.com. Valet parking is available.
