About the number HTTP requests in options 1, let's say the API can provide datums as a batch. You give it a bunch od record IDs all at once. In this case, the number of HTTP requests can be reduced if the client asks for records as a batch in one call.

Thanks for the detailed answer! You have good inputs. About coupling between API and data - can you really make a generic API? Should you? I mean, as I see it, the API should follow the structure of your data; otherwise you are unnecessarily designing two different data schemas, one for the DB and one for the API output.
