58. Omakase, Chef's Choice at Sushi Deli

Chef Michio Kushi began his career in his hometown of Katsuura, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan in 1977. So when you entrust him with preparing your meal at the 6 seat counter in the market he's owned since 1999, you're in good hands. Omakase literally means "up to you" in Japanese and allows a chef to explore their creativity with your palate as the canvas. Sushi Deli is a best kept secret among seafood enthusiasts in Miami and a great place for a meal. Definitely check it out.

Visit Sushi Deli & Japanese Market at 1412 79th Street Cswy., North Bay Village. It's directly across the street from WSVN Channel 7 headquarters. Call 305-861-0143 or visit japanese-market.com for more info.
