Bond St.

Critic's ChoiceIn the basement of the trendy Townhouse Hotel lies a hidden gem serving up delicious sushi dishes to a hip crowd. Because of stylish throngs of South Beachers who tend to follow what is hip around Miami like groupies follow rock stars, be prepared for a tight squeeze in the tiny bi-level dining room.

The house music sets the tone, and diners tend to rock in their seats as they survey the room, taking in the crowd infused with international beauties and an occasional celebrity. But once the food is served, the scene fades into the background and the cuisine becomes the center of attention.

World-renowned sushi chef Hirokazu Asano brings rare combinations of flavors and textures together in his signature rolls
and dishes. Be sure to try the Miami specialty: Sake steamed clams ($12), sure to make your mouth water with every bite.

Bond St. Lounge also offers an outstanding sake list to enhance your evening. After your meal, head up to the legendary townhouse rooftop for a drink on one of their waterbeds, complete with a view of the art deco landscape of South Beach.

Bond St. is located one block off of Collins Avenue at 150 20th Street, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139. Phone: 305.398.1806
