Morimoto South Beach

The Iron Chef's latest fiefdom is practically hidden, overlooking the pool at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand. Inside the pulsing copper-toned space, a dutiful staff turns out a variety of Masaharu Morimoto's signature dishes, including the $140 chef's choice omakase menu that has earned him rave reviews at his outposts spanning the globe. If you're on a budget, don't grimace at some of the cheaper options. The Iron Chef chicken soup is a deceivingly simple preparation against which all future soups will be judged. Also take note of the sushi bar, which rolls up tender, room-temperature balls of beautifully seasoned rice and tops them with everything from Hokkaido uni to luscious fatty tuna. Save your money, though -- the six-page menu is expansive, and you'll want to return for the conch takoyaki and the tableside tofu.
