It's been a while...

Please feel free to add your favorites FLA. Here go a few of mine.

1. Toni's South Beach(1st on the beach-not necessarily the best but still solid!)

2. NOBU South Beach (you got to give chef his props, partner Dinero lends much cred)

3. Tuff call...what do you think FLA???

  1. There is a small little place in Key West called Ambrosia and its the best sushi I have found anywhere.

    1. re: Suzie

      Kiku on Clearwater Beach is our favorite spot by far. Their eel sauce is the best I've ever had--and I've eaten a lot of eel over the years.

      1. re: Suzie

        I've been to Ambrosia--Great ambiance, service, and most importantly sushi!!

      2. Bond St. serves better sushi than both Toni and Nobu. That is not saying much. I would never get sushi at nobu as their cooked dishes are far superior. None of the restaurants you mentioned deserve to be top 3 sushi places in miami, let alone florida.

        1. re: tpigeon

          These are simply "MY" TOPS at 1:53am TP... please feel free to offer up yours. I throw mine out there just to get the thread going, you should know the drill by now, just like I know you'll be first in line to opine how bad my TOP 3 errrr 2 were. :-)

          And I will say this, the Wahoo I had last night at Toni's was second to none.

          As for Bond St...well let's just say, I haven't been yet and therefore couldn't include it in my quick wee-hour list. I hope to try it soon and report back. Thanks for the tip!

          I' m really hoping to find some decent gems on this post and as such I will offer up this one, which escaped me late last night:

          Sushi Deli in North Bay Village

        2. In an effort to come up with a better answer to this, we tried Bond St. for the first itme tonight. Here's the report ->

          Net - nice call on Sushi Deli.
          TP - quit being such a neg-bag, name your top 3!

            I have not tried the best places across the pond. I suspect that if I did, my top 3 would change. Only the old shoji was worth mentioning to me as a destination place in sobe. Bond St., while good is nothing I would go out of my way for, but is the current champ in sobe. Therefore, no top 3 for me :).

              1. re: lax2mia

                I hear you lax! We had SHoji delivered the other night and none of the sushi glistened freshly. Dull fish is well...dull fish! The shinier the fresher, none of ours shined by sight or by taste! It is a crying shame he let that place go down so significantly in quality.

                I have heard great things about a place called Sake on Sheridan St. up in Hollywood, anyone care to opine? My source says the presentation and quality are second to none and he lived in Japan for years!

                It will be tuff to pass on Sonny's Steak sammies(very close by), but I think I just may have to!

                As for Sushi Deli in NBV, that place is the real deal for sure. I aboslutely love it! Lunch only. Please don't tell anyone!!!

          2. Japango - Parkland
            Blue Fin - Parkland
            Masamune - Deerfield Beach

            1. I can't speak for all FLA but in the Boca-Delray-Deerfield area:

              2. Blue Fin
              3. (tie) Fah and Masamune
