Important Food Group — the group driving Miami’s most buzzed about new cafe, Carbone — is growing their footprint in the Magic City with the debut of ZZ’s Sushi Bar (151 NE 41st Road) in the Miami Style District. The two-tale cafe is a hybrid variation of the group’s popular ZZ’s Clam Bar and a sushi and personal users club.
The focal position of the initial ground dining parts is a customized-marble sushi counter overseen by cooks Masa Ito and Kevin Kim, who attained a Michelin star at New York’s Sushi Zo. The adjacent eating home offers a modern-day Japanese menu with a range of uncooked and cooked dishes, including the biggest presenting of wagyu beef in the United States served in a range of ways from wagyu katsu sandwiches with truffles to steak cooked over custom-built charcoal grills. There are also a collection of ZZ’s favorites — from the toast topped with trout roe and honey to the carpaccio of tuna, foie, uni, and scallop — as properly as dishes designed just for Miami like lobster dumplings, crispy snapper, and stone crab cucumber salad. The dessert menu, from pastry chef Stephanie Prida, presents dishes like Japanese ice product sandwiches, chocolate matcha bombs, and essential lime pie.
The space, which earlier was the dwelling for Ember, was intended by Ken Fulk and showcases curving bentwood banquettes with a malachite complete, teal cheetah print rug, antique furnishings, brass palm pendant lights, and classic clamshell eating chairs. For the ground ground patio, Fulk’s style and design inspo was “tiki bar on acid,” with wicker furnishings in a banana leaf print with modern day designs.
Upstairs, the space channels “80s disco” with tailor made banquettes, fringed stools, and cocktails tables, in metallic leather-based, animal prints, rose gold shattered mirror, velvet, and neon. As for beverages, they are created by longtime bartender Thomas Waugh. Appearing on the menu upstairs is the well-known Pistachio Cocktail with gin, honey, and lemon. In the eating rooms, friends can sip on Japanese-impressed normally takes of classics like the Dashi Martini, Hojicha Outdated Fashioned, and a Japanese Rum Highball.
ZZ’s Sushi Bar is now open up Tuesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. to midnight. This marks the 26th Important Foodstuff Team outpost in the world, and the next in Miami with further places to eat forthcoming in Brickell and the Miami Design and style District.
