The restaurant hails from London and officially opens to the public on Thursday, April 19th. Guests were treated to a sneak-peek of what’s to come from the trendy new hot spot that specializes in Japanese Peruvian-inspired cuisine (also known as Nikkei cuisine).

The spectacularly designed restaurant boasts state of the art features, such as a retractable roof highlighted by green foliage and palm trees, as well as a volcano-like centerpiece. The walls are decorated with a mix of popping colors that contrast beautifully against the black and white furnishings. Upon entry, guests can also notice a rotating wall that opens up like a door onto the side street of the restaurant tucked away on Miami Beach’s Lenox Avenue.
