New York's famed Michelin-starred Sushi Azabu has brought its talents to the MIA with not one but three luxe concepts inside the Stanton South Beach.
The Bubu-San cocktail
If you prefer se-kami to se-shimo and enjoy a single-cask whisky from the Tottori region, this is your spot. Azabu Miami offers next-level Asian dining, from the grades of maguro laid out with artistic precision to the unparalleled selection of Japanese whisky. Choose to dine in the main area and you’ll get the izakaya (sharable) experience that features dishes like robata-grilled yakitori, Japanese fried rice, udon noodles and more small plates to share. In need of a sip? The traditional Japanese bar serves shochus, umeshu cocktails (like the Bubu-San) and over 40 imported whiskies. For a more private setting, opt to sit in the hidden den, a cavernous space that you enter through the kitchen doors. Here, you’ll experience the omakase way of dining, where there’s no menu and only the Tokyo-trained chef’s choices are served. Wherever you choose to spend your evening at this Michelin-starred concept, expect a lovely and exclusive night in the South of Fifth neighborhood. 161 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, (786) 276-0520, azabuglobal.com
