Hiyakawa is an upscale Japanese restaurant centered in the trendy Wynwood district. Renowned chef Masayuki Komatsu is the backbone of the euphoric clamshell of a place. Hiyakawa is more on the intimate side, so smaller groups of 2-4 people are recommended. This will also give you a feel of what they preach — kikubari. In other words, the Japanese art of caring for others by immaculately tending to their needs. Prepare to be swayed by the service, presentation, and taste. The display of articulately carved fish on the plate is akin to a renaissance work of art. Naturally, Hiyakawa is an undeniable feast for the senses. 

The restaurant itself is made to transport you to some of the finest sushi bars in Tokyo’s high-toned Ginza area. The omakase menu offers seasonal fish, all flown in from Toyosu Fish Market in Tokyo. The produce gets delivered fresh daily, and service is only intended for a maximum of 50 people per day. Needless to say, reservations are recommended. If ordering omakase, you’ll be seated at the bar where you can see all the sorcery happen before your eyes. At the dining tables, you can enjoy Hiyakawa’s a-la-carte menu, which features delicacies such as sea urchin chawanmushi, fish kara-age, and a selection of yakimono. Seasonal sashimi specials include golden-eye perch, geoduck clam, and wild Japanese yellowtail, to name a few. Come with a cleansed palate and prepare for the voyage. 

Open Wednesday-Thursday 6-11 pm; 2700 N Miami Ave, Miami FL 33127; (305) 333-2417; hiyakawamiami.com
