Sushi By Bou Miami Beach

Gianni’s Suite Sushi Bar-min

Before the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, I had the opportunity to visit Sushi by Bou in Miami Beach for a high-end, Omakase 17-course tasting inside the Versace Mansion on Ocean Drive. The intimate dining experience takes place at a four-person counter where guests watch the masterful sushi chef prepare and serve each guest their individual pieces of sushi one at a time.

In Miami, Chef Wenjie Lian (aka Chef Miami Mike) heads the sushi bar. The menu rotates regularly and features the freshest, locally and globally sourced seafood. Chef Miami Mike guided us through the tasting by naming and describing each individual piece. Freshly sliced ginger was served alongside our plate. Before and after our tasting, we were seated inside the lounge, where a mixologist created specially made and menu based cocktails, and mocktails while we relaxed.

The exclusive experience, which takes about sixty minutes, is complimented by a craft cocktail menu that also includes imported sake and rare Japanese whiskeys. Cocktails from their menu include the Bou-Jito: Chili Infused Cruzan Rum, Ginger Syrup, Lime Juice, Basil; and Yuzu Honey Bee: Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Honey Syrup, Yuzu Juice, Pink Peppercorn.
Sushi by Bou Gianni’s Suite is the first location outside of Manhattan. It was conceptualized by Michael Sinensky and Erika London of Simple Venue, a hospitality group that specializes in turning under-utilized spaces into experiential concepts.
