Michelin Starred Sushi Is Coming to South Beach
Back in the 1980s, a pair named George Yuji Koshoji and Carlos Augusto Carvalho met in São Paulo, Brazil, became acquaintances, and decided to join forces to open a sushi restaurant called Kosushi. Now, this may not seem all that impressive until you realize that in a country where just eighteen of the restaurants have received a prestigious Michelin star, Kosushi has managed the astounding feat of scoring a star four times in a row! Besides the taste of the food, it has earned a reputation for the meticulous attention placed on how a plate is served to make it look like a work of art, albeit an edible one.
If you can’t make it to Brazil, no worries. Kosushi is getting ready to debut its Michelin-approved menu for the first time in the United States, and it has chosen none other than South Beach as the inaugural location! The 3,300+ square foot eatery will accommodate up to 66 guests and it will feature a unique wooden cube ceiling to add to the ambiance.
There will also be a sushi bar for up to ten people and a cocktail bar with drinks devised by mixologist Marcio Silva, a fellow Brazilian.
Kosushi is tentatively scheduled to open in the South of Fifth area next month on the 17th, just in time to coincide with the 31st anniversary of the original Kosushi in São Paulo.
