When we eat, we use all our senses, which is why food has to be visually appealing as well as delicious.

Master chef Sunchai "Sunshine" Naknoon is a firm believer that one should "eat with your eyes" at his new restaurant Nikko by Sunshine. At his new Brickell Bay restaurant, expect to see some surprising dishes -- with some whimsical touches.

After a 17-year career as master chef at restaurants like China Grill, Sushi Siam, and the Sheraton Bal Harbor Beach Resort, "Sunshine" opened a sushi bar at the Fort Lauderdale Hilton Hotel and Resort. Nikko by Sunshine is his first foray into the Miami market.

The menu is a mix of sushi, sashimi, curries, and noodles. The Bangkok-born chef adds playful artistry and food carvings to the dishes -- even incorporating live goldfish swimming in martini glasses into the displays (Please, no goldfish swallowing. The little guys are there purely for decoration).
