3250 NE 1st Avenue
International flavors referencing Brazil, Peru, Japan and America are inventively prepared in a raw bar, tapas and grill format. This large room vibrates with an attractive young crowd in a stunning modern setting. Everything about this new addition to the Midtown dining experience is right. This recently established area has taken off and this restaurant is at the forefront.
Chinese, Trinidadian chef, Timon Balloo, formerly of Chef Allen, Azul and La Broche is leading the way. The snacks and tapas categories yield mouth watering bites like bacon wrapped dates, Kobe beef sliders with quail eggs, golden beets or Florida tomatoes and strawberries with burrata. Instead of the ubiquitous chips, with one of the 30 rums and 40 beers, savor the shishito peppers. Fantastic!. You’ll never reach for a chip again. The robata grill, a Japanese invention fired up with bincho-tan charcoal, is used for everything from asparagus to Korean-style short ribs. Crudos of Atlantic salmon, fluke or yellowtail are seldom found in Miami and provide a fresh, light course. It takes several visits to sample all the categories on this extensive menu unless you share with a group of friends. Sushi, sashimi and specialty rolls also deserve your attention
