Florida’s 1,350 miles of coastline make it a great place to eat all kinds of seafood. When it comes to sushi, Miami has several quality options that can compete with the finest raw fish bars in the world. The next time you’re craving some nigiri or maki, keep these critic-approved, resident favorites in mind.
Created by the same talented minds (and taste buds) who started Sake Room in midtown Miami, Kamiko is one of Doral’s hottest restaurants. Prices are good, the menu expansive, and service exceptional. Kamiko’s Crunchy Crab Delight is a signature maki offering and patron favorite. Kamiko is a ten-minute drive from AMLI Doral.
Located on Key Biscayne, Kazumi serves up traditional Japanese food in a sophisticated setting. The Sex on the Beach roll, a patron favorite, combines fried shrimp, chanquetes, and kani with crab salad and yuzu. Unlike many sushi bars, Kazumi reliably stocks everything on its menu.
Nobu has been popular among Miami sushi lovers for years, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. Trained in Tokyo, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa masterfully prepares traditional Japanese and Japanese-Peruvian fusion dishes. Nobu’s menu is pricey, but the high-quality food and stellar dining room near the coast make it worth the splurge.
Sokai is another sushi bar with Japanese-Peruvian style entrees on its menu, but this one tends to go a tad easier on the wallet. The Peruvian ceviche amarillo is a major crowdpleaser. The original location is a five-minute drive from AMLI’s luxury apartments in Doral, and the second, which has been open since April, is a 15-minute drive from AMLI Dadeland.
Run out of the lobby of the Epic Hotel, Zuma’s kitchen is authentically Japanese in appearance and culinary methods. This explains the veil of secrecy surrounding Zuma’s ponzu sauce recipe. A high standard of service works with the delicious cuisine and impeccable design to make Zuma a trifecta of near-perfection.
Miami has enough excellent sushi bars, spanning a range of prices, that there’s no reason to settle for anything less than the best. We hope you found this list helpful, and enjoy your next sushi dinner to the fullest.
