Sneak Peek: Soho Bay Miami Opening

Oh joy! The internationally acclaimed Soho Bay sushi concept hailing from Brazil is opening in Miami on April 7th! Last week, I had a chance to take a sneak peek during a private opening celebration, and I made sure to document all the juicy details for you, my dear readers.

Lots of things going on here, so let's get to the good stuff, shall we?

Its Miami Beach location is the first outside of Brazil
Soho Bay’s flagship location in Bahia opened back in 1998 and later expanded to eight additional locations throughout Brazil. The brand gained international fame for its sophisticated and modern Japanese menu, which integrates the bold flavors and ingredients indigenous to Brazil.

The chef knows a thing or two about sushi
Executive Chef Ricky Sauri brings more than 20 years of experience from a number of the country’s most esteemed restaurants including a decade at the renowned Nobu empires. 

Its cocktail menu will amaze you
Soho Bay features a creative cocktail program highlighting sakes, innovative libations, and classically-inspired drinks with a molecular twist, including house-made foams, gelatins and liquid nitrogen.

It has quite a view
Whether you are sitting indoors at the stunning backlit sushi bar, or going for an al fresco dining experience, one thing is guaranteed – an unobstructed view of the bay and Miami skyline. Yep, you may want to take a selfie or two.

In case you missed it, check out a video recap of the event, as well as some of my "photo highlights" of the night. Enjoy!

Woooo! Our liquid nitrogen drinks in the making!

So many drinks... so little time!
This sushi is (almost) too pretty to eat!
