Sushi by Scratch Restaurants: Miami

$$$$

Sushi By Scratch is an omakase with locations in Los Angeles, Austin, and more. Their Miami expansion landed in Coconut Grove. They’re currently operating from the living room of Stirrup House, a historic Coconut Grove home that’s a really unique (and tightly-squeezed) place to have an omakase. The 17-course meal is far from traditional Japanese sushi. Nigiri is topped with little slices of pineapple, drizzled with melted bone marrow, and brushed with a beet mustard sauce. It may sound chaotic, but everything works deliciously and no ingredient is tossed around simply for the sake of showmanship. Dinner moves along at a good pace, and the atmosphere is fun enough that you won’t have to feel self-conscious if you accidentally get a little drunk off the house beverage pairing, which mixes small samples of sake, a couple cocktails, and finishes things off with a Japanese beer. Reservations here go fast, so set your alarm for the first of the month at 1pm, when they release slots for the next 30 days.

Mr. OmaKase is an excellent omakase in Downtown that’s not too formal, but incredibly delicious.
