Follow a hostess through the tall black gates of Villa Casa Casuarina on Ocean Drive into its courtyard, then upstairs to a pair of heavy wooden doors. Behind them waits a dark space with a wooden vaulted ceiling crisscrossed by intricately inlaid beams. You'll find yourself in Italian designer Gianni Versace's former suite, converted into a Japanese speakeasy offering intimate four-seat omakase experiences. As with Sushi by Bou's NYC locations, chef David Bouhadana is the itamae behind the creations in the $125 hourlong meals — a feast of 17 pieces ranging from smoked lean tuna crowned with a dash of gold flakes to uni sea urchin on seaweed or a scallop topped with volcanic salt. Insider tip: Your reservation includes private access to the G-Lounge, Gianni Versace's original cigar room. The cozy space is equipped with a personal bartender serving Japanese whiskys and craft cocktails, as well as leather couches, a fireplace, and a Mr. Sake dispensing machine. Seats are released one month in advance, and reservations must be made through the restaurant's website or OpenTable and paid at the time of booking.
