Waterfront dining Miami: modern Japanese cuisine
Zuma is one of the two Miami restaurants at Kimpton EPIC Hotel and Residences located in the heart of downtown Miami and brings chef Rainer Becker’s internationally acclaimed style of modern Japanese cuisine to America. From your window or terrace table, you will see super yachts parked 30 feet away, as well as water craft navigating the Miami River/Biscayne Bay.

Renowned in London, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Dubai and Bangkok, Zuma Miami offers a sophisticated cuisine philosophy of flavorsome, modern Japanese dishes in a fun and vibrant environment inspired by the informal Japanese dining style called izakaya and enjoyed as part of a waterfront dining Miami experience. Zuma offers a distinct alternative to the typical cuisine of most Miami restaurants.
The space is quite contemporary in design, clean and the tables have plenty of space between the next one. Seating is loungey and low to the ground. I will say that all the inter-asian dishes I had were all great and good portions. Read the menu and pick for yourself. The bar seems quite popular right after work with the residents, visitors and local office workers across the street.
Zuma Miami does enforce a smart casual dress code, no shorts or beachwear are permitted
