The Den is a speakeasy Omakase experience inside Azabu Miami Beach, offering five-star service in an intimate setting. The 18-seat sushi bar with a counter crafted from a Hinoki Cypress tree features imported ingredients flown directly from Japan. The Den’s Edomae-style sushi menu showcases beautifully balanced dishes using traditional techniques bringing out the hidden flavors in each fish while ensuring only carefully selected high-quality ingredients are used and rotated seasonally. Omakase dinners are available with the option to upgrade for the ultimate omakase experience, with a uni tasting and toro tasting with sake pairings.

“It is a true honor to be included in the prestigious MICHELIN Guide in the company of some of the best restaurants in the world,” said Head Sushi Chef Atsushi Okaware. “When I took over the leadership at The Den late last year, my intention was always to maintain the restaurant’s highly regarded reputation while incorporating new elements to showcase Japan’s culinary arts and rich and natural bounties with the freshest ingredients. Our team’s dedication, effort, and passion at The Den are unparalleled, and we are humbled to be recognized by the MICHELIN Guide.”
