Yet Another Reason to Head Straight for the New SLS Lux Brickell
On Friday, we told you about S Bar opening inside the new SLS Lux Brickell.
And now, after tugging at your cocktail-loving heartstrings, we have yet another opening sure to send you straight to the the hotel. This one speaks directly to your stomach and its love for master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi.
Behold: Brickell has a Katsuya now.
Gone are the days of driving exclusively to South Beach for sushi and robata dishes. You can now find them in Miami proper looking a lot like this.
Bring a date you want to impress. Walking in, you’ll probably notice the sake-box wall. While visions of Jenga dance through your head, we implore you to look, not touch.

Sure, you’ll find classics like short rib gyoza with braised onions. But the chicken oyako kamameshi—a traditional Japanese hot pot with an arroz con pollo twist via edamame, fried sweet plantains and chili-lime butter—is new.
