Like Goldilocks and her porridge, it can be hard to find an omakase that’s “just right” - one that hits that sweet spot between formal and informal, suspiciously cheap and give-your-accountant-a-heart-attack expensive. But Mr. Omakase in Downtown walks that line perfectly.

It’s a dinner that feels paired down to just the essentials, like a fancy piece of Danish furniture. We’re not going to call Mr. Omakase cheap, but the 10-course option comes in under $100 (at least before service, taxes, and sake), and that’s a lot better than most upscale omakase dinners in Miami. The space is intimate, with a dozen or so counter seats, and the service is attentive - but never overbearing or suffocating. You can still come here in jeans and not worry about receiving stares from the staff or fellow diners - and everyone around you is probably just paying attention to the food anyway. It’s phenomenal.

Every piece of fish, uni, or beef that’s laid in front of you seemingly gets better and better, like a well-paced action movie or roller coaster that makes you want to immediately get back in line. And by the time you reach the otoro or the A5 wagyu, you’ll want to stand up and applaud. Dinner here lasts for two hours and there are only a few seatings per night, which you need to book and pay for in advance.

Mr. OmaKase review image


Mr. Omakase offers 10, 14, and 18-course options ranging from $79 to $139 per person. The menu changes frequently based on availability and seasonality, but, our 14-course dinner started with a crisp bowl of arctic surf clam and daikon radish, a couple small bites of fried hamachi, a sashimi plate, eight phenomenal pieces of nigiri topped with horse mackerel, scallop, tuna, and more delicious things. Then there was chawanmushi, a handroll, miso soup, and mochi. If we weren’t so full by the end, we would have done a backflip.
