Within River Yacht Club — a Miami riverfront restaurant, bar and yacht club — you’ll come across one of the best Japanese dining experiences in the 305: Dashi. Ex-Kuro Executive Sushi Chef Shuji Hiyakawa is leading this “restaurant within a restaurant” concept, which serves up progressive Asian fare paired with an incredible view. Sit down and strap in for a delicious meal that you’ll be thinking about long after you’re done eating.
When we first visited NaiYaRa, Chef Piyarat Potha Arreeratn aka Chef Bee had just opened this ode to Asian street fare in Sunset Harbour. A year has passed since then, and Chef Bee has introduced many new dinner items to the menu (and he has plenty more in the works).
Although the menu has changed, the experience hasn’t. These latest additions continue to deliver the value, flavor and satiety that diners have come to expect from the fare at this Miami Beach hotspot.
In Miami, quality food doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Nobu, a name synonymous with quality, is making fine dining affordable with the launch of several prix-fixe lunch options. And regardless of which option you choose, you’re getting one of the best lunch deals in town.
Doral: It’s a neighborhood that’s not exactly known for its food scene. Okay, let’s be honest: it’s definitely not known for its food scene. But that’s all changing with the growth of Downtown Doral, a gorgeous mixed-use community (and future hotspot) located on NW 87th Avenue and 53rd Street. Amidst this growth is Dragonfly Izakaya and Fish Market, one of our new favorite restaurants — and one you need to check out ASAP.
Last week, Azul at Mandarin Oriental made Thursdays nights a lot more interesting. February 4 marked the launch of the five-star restaurant’s Izakaya Nights, a new weekly Thursday night dinner series celebrating Chef Benjamin Murray’s Japanese roots. Guests can opt for a $55 prix-fix menu of shareable plates reminiscent of those found in traditional Izakaya restaurants in Japan.
After trying out the first week’s menu for ourselves, we suggest you do just that.
