While bartenders mix cocktails and pour craft beers, diners eat near a 28-foot mural created by self-taught tattoo artist Michael “Pooch” Pucciarelli. As the woman in the painting raises a bowl of noodles, mountains and waterways backdrop billows of steam and colorful butterflies. This mural encapsulates the Indochine vibe sought after by restaurateurs Scott Frielich, Vaughan Lazar, and Rodney Mayo. A designer as well as an owner, Rodney furnished the restaurant with reclaimed wood tables and a 25-foot bar made with sorghum straw that extends onto an outdoor patio. These rustic accouterments continue the sustainable approach that the owners have taken in previous restaurants, such as Dada, The Dubliner, and Pizza Fusion.
At Visual Eyes at Mizner Park and Real Eyes on Atlantic Avenue, licensed optometrist Aaron Evans oversees full-service optometry centers and an inventory of more than 1,500 designer frames from makers such as Gucci, Ray-Ban, and Chanel.

They also stock more than 400 varieties of sunglasses, enough for a gang of 50 spiders protect their eyes and look uniquely cool at the same time.
