Sushi Sobe

Sushi SoBe is a new venture by Loews hotel chain to introduce its popular Sushi delicacies to America. This new restaurant is in the lobby of charming Loews Hotel South Beach and has already garnered rave reviews from famous critics and gourmet guides. The setting occupies prominent area in the middle of ground floor which is also a perfect spot to see and be seen. Without much fanfare, Sushi SoBe has opened its doors with well respected Master Chef, Fuji Fujita, at its helm. Likewise, Tung Nguyen is given charge of making sure that the Sushi is dressed most appropriately.

What’s on Menu?

Although, menu is not huge but frequent visitors have offered rave reviews of salmon rolls and sake cocktails, made from fresh cucumber and lemonade. Osaka box style rolls are topped with avocado, salmon, crab or spicy fish roe. Sashimi sampler comes with delicious smoked salmon, maguru and traditional tuna tataki. For those who still want something American style, they can order a variety of booze from the well stocked full bar. Interestingly, no reservations are required and anyone with casual and some descent clothing, is welcomed. Due to a moderately high price tag, it is recommended that walk-ins should carry some cash in their wallets.

Sushi SoBe opens daily in the evening and closes late at night. The Loews service standards are manifested in friendly smiles of its waiter who are knowledgeable about their presentations. Guests staying at the hotel have reported that if you are a regular visitor then the staff may cook something of your liking. Yes, the staff at Sushi SoBe is known to go extra mile by surprising its customers with ‘off the menu’ delicacies. The roll selection is favorite among children. It includes tropical big eye tuna with mango slice. Sushi Sobe is also among one of its best dishes. For a more memorable taste, try the crunchy Eel which is a Hodge-podge of cream, salad, habanero masago and served with eel sauce that seems to be all over the place.

It is also reported that heavily grained Asian rustic tables and sushi bar, decked with bonsai, has just made the place even more desirable. Don’t be surprised to see some martini boys mixing vodka with cocktail or trying to make up their own drink. In fact, it is this type of atmosphere which has made Loews South Beach lobby peculiar among all other dazzling beauties in Miami. Sushi SoBe merrily fits this funky but well managed environment.
