Culinary Circus

Over-the-top Miami restaurant serves food in fun and unusual ways.

You can't eat at Barton G and not take out your camera phone.

Barton Weiss, owner of Barton G, says "The crazier, the funkier the better, I want people to say oh my God, wow."

Barton g. Weiss is the P.T. Barnum of this culinary circus.

For almost a decade, this South Beach staple has been serving up outrageous dishes, drinks, and desserts. That one's called "Give Me Some Smores."

There's also The Summer of Love key lime pie and the Sabrina sundae with sparklers in a blinged out martini glass.

Barton says "there's no rhyme or reason, what makes fun is what it's all about."

How else do you explain lobster pop tarts that come inside a toaster. Or the surf and turf served with a 3-foot-tall fork. And then there's the drinks, smoking, thanks to liquid nitrogen popsicles. One even comes with a chocolate monkey.

Barton says "I come up with it, lay it up there, they figure it out."

Barton says he finds inspiration for his constantly changing menu everywhere. Even the most unlikely places.

Barton says "I can go into Home Depot lost ideas not food industry, outside world"

At Barton G, even ordering dessert is a show. Ipods, pictures of wild desserts. Then after, one more surprise, the bill comes in an envelope that says the damage.

Barton G is a hot-spot for celebrities like Lebron James, but no matter who's there it's the dishes that get the most stares.
