    I'm sorry, one's in Sunrise (Bank Atlantic Center) and the other is in the University of Miami (Bank United Center).

      Sarah,

      If you are going to the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise my wife and I have two non-chain favorites nearby. Marume Sushi and Caspian Persian Grill. The price points are similar with Caspian likely being the quicker of the two. Marume is incredible but might work better after the TSO concert as you'll want to savor every bite!

            THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TH RECOMENDATION! We went to Marume and LOVED it. It is in a nondescript shopping plaza and you can tell that the restaurant was probably once a coffee shope. However the food was exquisite and the staff fantastic. It was nice to actually go to a Japanese restaurant where they are making authentic food, that is fresh and full of flavor and a bit different.
            Even though we live in Miami we are definately planning on going back!
