SushiSamba to Open Coral Gables Location

SushiSamba is expanding its brand in Miami with the opening of SushiSamba Coral Gables. The third Miami-area restaurant in the chain (parent company Samba Brands also owns Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill in midtown) will open inside the Westin Colonnade Hotel in April.

The 6,500-square-foot restaurant will feature a lounge, two bars, outdoor dining, and an event space. It will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. In addition, the new location will offer a weekend brunch featuring exotic juices and freshly baked breads.

The eatery will serve much the same fare as the Lincoln Road

location. Expect to see a fusion of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian

flavors -- sometimes in the same dish. For example, many of the

signature samba rolls build on traditional sushi by adding tropical fruits

and spices.

SushiSamba is known for its

signature cocktails (and some of the tastiest mojitos and caipirinhas

we've encountered), so expect to drink some classic cocktails and exotic

spirits such as shochu, pisco, and cachaça, in addition to one of the

largest premium sake selections in Florida.
