Shuji Hiyakawa, former executive sushi chef of Kuro at the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, brings Japan to Miami with his first solo venture. This blink-and-you'll-miss-it spot on the 79th Street Causeway dispenses wonderfully simple and straightforward ingredient-based sushi bowls, such as the Wabi Sabi (filled with tuna, salmon, crab, tobiko, cucumber, avocado, seaweed, and shiitake mushrooms). Look for daily specials, cooked-fish, creations, and six flavors of mochi ice cream (including matcha green tea and salted caramel). If you're dining at home, consider the shidashi — a Japanese word that means "luxury sushi trunk." At Wabi Sabi, this means a bento box to the third power: three levels filled with a chef's-choice assortment of nigiri and rolls. Priced at $200, the box will satisfy two to four sushi fans. Insider tip: Customers who bring their own bottle, bowl, or box receive $1 off their purchase. And those who return their empty shidashi box get $75 off their next shidashi order.
