Kevin Cory's newest restaurant expands upon the bento box, which has anchored the meal at his revered omakase temple Naoe when it was hidden in Sunny Isles Beach and more recently on Brickell Key. The unadorned beechwood box containing six intricately prepared dishes doesn't have to be eaten in any particular order, though it should be taken in slowly, providing time to really grasp this meal's complexity and sophistication. Cory makes tofu in house. During the summer, it's with bubblegummy jackfruit, and in the winter it's boniato. Either way, it's topped with a luscious, briny lobe of Hokkaido uni. Don't forget to take in your surroundings as well. The decorations are made from rare trees, shipped in from remote forests around the country and, because of their size, hewn on location before being interconnected to create this natural Japanese hideaway.
