Shiso Miami - Closed

1418 20th St. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-672-1119

Location Description:

The menu at this little SoBe sushi hideaway is short and sweet: seven salads/starters ($4 to $16), four signature appetizers ($14 to $16), a dozen rolls ($9 to $16), and seventeen sushi/sashimi selections ($6 to $11). There are just a few hot starters, such as truffled edamame with lots of sea salt on the skins, and a tasty take on Asian fish and chips: three skewer-straightened tempura shrimp with fresh sweet potato fries also sheathed in a crunchy battered crust. Portions are about half the size of those at other places, which makes the prices seem deceptively low. Still, smoky slices of eel speckled with toasted coconut and pooled in an apple cider-based eel sauce would leave you wanting more no matter how large the sampling. The hamachi-jalapeño roll is good too. Sushi/sashimi selections include fluke, Tasmanian sea trout, and an excellent in-house smoked salmon. Choice of dessert is limited to green tea ice cream or sweet potato tempura. If the selection seems skimpy, it's because the fuel that runs Shiso's engine is apparently not food, but the alcoholic beverages and lounge environment. Best bet is to stop by for a Bali Hai lager or one of the sake-based cocktails muddled with tropical fruits - and consider the cuisine as really great bar snacks.
