100 Favorite Dishes: Bento Box at NAOE

As a countdown to New Times' "Best of

Miami" 2010, Short Order is serving up 100 of our favorite dishes in the

305. Send your nominations to cafe@miaminewtimes.com.


70. Bento Box at NAOE

The best part about the bento box at NAOE is that you never know what you're going to get, but whatever you do get will wow you each and every time. In the four-compartment box, chef Kevin Cory serves delicious creations like sea bream wrapped in Napa cabbage with okra, miso, soy sauce, citrus, wasabi and live aoyagi clam; shako (mantis shrimp) topped with green beans and unfiltered soy sauce miso; and always some type of rice such as parsnip or organic portabella mushroom rice. You'll also be served a soup. There's no menu at this tiny omakase restaurant in Sunny Isles so the contents of the box change every time, but believe us, here you won't be sorry to leave your food choices up to the chef.
