Sake Blue Asian Kitchen and Bar

Sake Blue Asian Kitchen and Bar

The team behind Town Kitchen & Bar has done it again. First it was with the opening of Smoke’t in South Miami where they put a funky twist on favorite southern favorites (how about some their creative selection of Red Neck Rolls?), and now they’ve brought progressive global Asian fusion to The Collection building behind Village of Merrick Park.

This high-energy, neighborhood hangout was inspired by the partners’ trips to New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco where sake joints combined with talented chefs caught their attention, and they wanted to bring the concept back to Miami. The result — a hip hangout complete with a modern take on Asian dishes, a roomy bar area, a chef’s table, a private sake room and the option of dining inside in the midst of all the energy or at a more secluded table al fresco.
