Shibui Japanese Restaurant

Hours:SATURDAY6:00PM to 11:30PM

Kendall’s Shibui has been cooking traditional Japanese food for Miami since back when a lot of the county probably thought “omakase” was a local DJ. Not much has changed in the nearly 40 years since it’s been open, especially the perfectly cozy second-floor dining space, which features low tables that require you to sit on the ground. Definitely ask for a seat up there and don't feel awkward when your legs get tangled up under the table. There is a little bit of everything on the menu, including Japanese-American favorites, like teriyaki and California rolls, and harder-to-find specialties, like beef tataki, natto, and a hearty-yet-light sukiyaki that’s big enough for four people to share.
