SoBe landed in the lobby of Loews Miami Beach Hotel with less
razzmatazz than one might expect -- especially in light of the menu
having been developed by one of just six Master Sushi Chefs in the
United States. That would be Fuji Fujita, executive sushi chef for
Loews Hotels. Execution of the menu has been handed to Fuji's protégé,
Tung Nguyen. If I was producing a sushi series for The Food Network,
I'd try to get these guys so I could call the show Fuji and Tung.
Naturally the sushi bar/lounge is fashionably dazzling, and the sushi
is presented in dazzling fashion -- or is it the other way around?
Either way, get set to enjoy tropical salmon roll,
seared big eye tuna, and sake cocktails made with refreshers such as
cucumber and lemonade. Boozers -- I mean those who enjoy sipping sake
and cocktails with their sushi -- should circle Wednesdays on the
calendar for Sushi and Sake Night: 50% off all signature cocktails,
sake, wine, and beer purchased with any food order. Feeling a frantic
need to reserve? Call 305-604-5420.
