(Epic Hotel) 270 Biscayne Blvd. Way
AWARD: Golden Spoon
The only U.S. outpost of jet-set Japanese concept is the sleekest, hippest power dining at sea level in downtown Miami’s Epic Hotel. The menu goes far beyond sushi and tempura with robata-grilled artichokes, cedar-roasted chicken, scallop tartare and sumptuous desserts. Green tea and banana cake, anyone?
