Acqualina Resort & Residences, the award-winning South Florida ultra-luxury enclave in Sunny Isles Beach that also includes The Estates at Acqualina, announced the grand opening of Japanese fusion restaurant Ke-uH in its AQ space.

Ke-uH at Acqualina marks the third location of the restaurant, after the Ke-uH in Weston and Kazumi in Key Biscayne.

Carlos Delfino, Chef/Founder and part-owner of Ke-uH and Kazumi, worked with Master Sushi Chef Oscar Noborikawa to create the inventive Ke-uH menu with fine ingredients. Chef Noborikawa previously spent 14 years in Nobu Miami, where his experience was shaped under some of the country’s most acclaimed Japanese masters before being promoted to Executive Sushi Chef.

Chef Noborikawa’s use of ingredients and balance is a signature feature of his work. He liaises with top suppliers to import Japanese Hamachi yellowtail, Uni sea urchin, octopus and sweet shrimp, Scottish salmon, Yellowfin and Bigeye tuna from Central and South America, and Bluefin tuna from the Mediterranean Sea.

The fusion menu will include everything from pizza crust to ponzu sauce, yuzu soy, truffle flavors, and aioli from personal recipes to go with sushi and non-Japanese plates like baby back ribs, sliders, and Kurobuta pork belly, as well as vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

“It’s the balance in every single bite,” says Chef Noborikawa. “For me, it’s the combination of the quality of product, the preparation, the respect of and care for every single ingredient and inherent discipline to create the perfect balance of citrus, spiciness, sauce for expressive sushi.”

“We are honored to be working with Acqualina to bring Ke-uH to Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach,” said owner Daniel Fernandez. “We are offering an elevated dining experience where family and friends will find something they will love and enjoy together.”
