According to Urban Daddy :
“Akashi. They’ve been doing magical things with sushi in South Miami for 20 years. And now they’re doing those things in Brickell. Which bodes well for your daily recommended nigiri intake. For the former: one of the black wooden booths. A discreet spot for exchanging a few trade secrets over some Sapporos. For the latter: the sushi bar. It’s the one with the massive lionfish tank lining the wall. Solid conversation-starting locale for bottles of unfiltered sake and some grilled yellowtail collar. Which you’re likely to find at brunch here… soon. Along with 13 kinds of Vietnamese-style noodles.”
According to New Times :
“There are no amateurs sushi chefs behind this new downtown dig: Hannya is the creative work of Larry Chi, an elite South Florida chef as well as a third generation restaurant owner. Chi made a name for himself in 1993 with the opening of the wildly popular Akashi Sushi in South Miami, and the subsequent opening of Akashi in Coconut Grove in 2008. Hannya, which means “wisdom” in Japanese, will follow suit and serve Japanese food, in addition to other Asian-inspired dishes.” written by Ilana Ladis.
