Prime Fish to Open: Classic Nemo Dishes to Be Showcased
Chef Mike Sabin is bringing back some Nemo classics.
It's been in the works since Nemo closed in 2010, and Prime Fish will finally make a splash in SoFi at 100 Collins Ave. at the end of this month.
The restaurant is the third in Myles Chefetz's Prime restaurant series. Sister locations Prime One Twelve and Prime Italian are known as two of the best places for high-end (and high-priced) food on South Beach.
Myles Restaurant Group corporate chef Michael Sabin will head the kitchen. Folks who know seafood will remember Sabin as a chef at Nemo, who eventually rose to the top of that kitchen. That means Sabin knows his way around the bounty to be offered. Expect classics from Nemo's menu, such as wok-charred wild king salmon, whimsical items like breaded fish sticks, and freshly caught seafood. Prime Fish will also offer the same cuts of meat served at Chefetz's steak house, Prime One Twelve.
Restaurateur Myles Chefetz is happy to channel the gone-but-not-forgotten Nemo, saying, "Prime Fish is a fish shack-meets-upscale dining experience, where you'll see fried clam strips on one table and Dover sole on the next. I think there's a strong demand for a concept like Prime Fish Miami Beach. It's the way I eat, and I'm pleased to add this new component to the Prime dining experience, especially because it's healthy."
No word yet on menu prices, but if Prime 112 and Prime Italian are indications, prepare to eat ramen noodles for a month after your big night out. But at Prime Fish, you'll probably be sitting next to basketball or Hollywood royalty, so suck it up and enjoy your Dover sole.
