OMAKAI: WYNWOOD NEWEST RESTAURANT GEM
Even if it this cozy Japanese restaurant would be located far away from our office I would still schedule a lunch in this truly special place. But yes, I am lucky enough it is located just an elevator ride from AXS LAW offices and I have lunch at OMAKAI at least once per week.
If you are looking for a fancy, happening kind of place this is not the one for you. OMAKAI is unpretentious and real, the kind of place you go to eat, alone or with good company and enjoy the food.
The traditional sushi and hand roll restaurant is a collaboration between two brothers Diego and Pedro Quijada, and Nicolas Sayavedra
make sure to plan some of my lunches wouldn't be just Located in hip Buena Vista neighborhood , just a short drive from AXS LAW offices is this new favorite of mine: BOIA DE. With midcentury furnishings and cool wall paper this great restaurant is the first from Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer, who formerly helmed La Pollita and met while working at New York City’s prized Eleven Madison Park.
The food served in tapas style is absolutely amazing! I tried a few of the dishes in the menu, but will need to keep coming back to try them all and of course repeat some of my favorites:
HAMACHI yuzu salsa verde, crispy POTATO SKINS burrata with caviar and hard egg, FOIE GRAS terrine and CARROT cake mascarpone frosting among others....
