Sakaya Kitchen at Fashion Week Kickoff Party at Gary Nader Gallery
|Sakaya Kitchen's Ssam Lettuce Wrap.|
We're about as fashion conscious as a paper bag in a parking lot, but every time we see the gates open at Nader's hq we know there's a free party inside with top shelf liquor, catered food, and the fine art of Latin American masters. This is always a good time.
Richard Hale's menu consists of modern interpretations of classic Korean. He says, "I'm not interested in doing Japanese, or Thai. I wanna do something different in a mainstream way with all of my ideas filtered through Korean ingredients."
The only Korean joint we know of in the City of Miami is Choice Cafe, a cool, authentic place located inside a ghost mall in Wynwood, but they're not built for an American audience. Sakaya takes the culture's spicy essence, incorporates a chef's creativity, and adds health and eco-consciousness. So far, the people love it.
