The bright, airy space will see Modernist furnishings by Wendell Castle, George Nakashima and Paul Evans; works by Dale Chihuly and Louis Comfort Tiffany; hand-blown Italian and Murano glass; and handcrafted woodwork from the Pennsylvania Amish.
Walls of the restaurant, particularly the 10-seat chef's tasting room, will be adorned with works of art borrowed from the Modernism Museum situated right across the street.
Kitchen creations will pay homage to Florida's roots ("from the heart, modern Florida cuisine" says Van Aken)
A couple of dishes you can expect to see when 1921 opens towards the end of July:
• Grilled Okeechobee mushroom tostadas with boiled peanut romesco and queso fresco
• Ceviche of lionfish cured in passion fruit, ginger and sesame, with lychees and coconut
