ZUMA, London's enormously popular "authentic, nontraditional Japanese" restaurant, has announced May 24th as its official opening date at the EPIC Hotel & Residences in downtown Miami. German chef Rainer Becker created ZUMA based on the informal Japanese dining style called Izakaya as well as on his love of capitalizing letters.
The first ZUMA opened in Knightsbridge in 2002; then Hong Kong (2007), Istanbul (2008), Dubai (2008) -- and now Miami, chosen as the initial foray into America. We are honored. Seriously, this should be a really good one. Contributing to our high expectations is the knowledge that management and chefs for this and all ZUMAs are being trained in London.
ZUMA is on the ground floor of the EPIC (270 Biscayne Blvd. Way). Reservations for lunch and dinner can be made by calling 305-577-0277.
