La Savina at Mondrian South Beach is ceasing only dinner service as of July 15 to make way for something perhaps more memorable, the Brooklyn-based MoMo Sushi Shack, which will be collaborating with Mondrian’s executive chef Dustin Atoigue to bring their clever menu that includes innovative sushi and extensive vegan/veggie options to the poolside venue. MoMo Sushi Shack specializes in Japanese tapas and sushi featuring extensive vegetarian and vegan options. They pops up starting yesterday and will go through till October at the Mondrian South Beach. Here is more information about MoMo Sushi Shack :
According to New Times :
“To carry out the philosophy of Momo Sushi Shack and re-create the menu, the team will collaborate with Mondrian’s executive chef Dustin Atoigue. Atoigue was the opening chef at Katsuya, Hyde at the American Airlines Arena, and Hyde Beach. Our menu is pretty extensive, he says. “We get stuff flown in every day.” In other words, you’ll eat fish that woke up in Tokyo. After much back and forth, Gilmour has decided that at first they’ll stick with signature items from the Brooklyn outpost. “I was going crazy in the beginning cause there’s so many cool ingredients in South Florida and a big part of what we do is farm-to-table. But we want to do the core dishes from Momo.” Since most of the menu is farm-to-table, however, Momo Sushi Shack will offer a limited menu that bridges the gap between fun, quirky sushi and the traditional stuff. “We have fun with our food, but we take it very seriously as far as where we source ingredients, even if it’s vegetables or ice.” Indeed, a big part of Momo Sushi Shack’s Brooklyn menu caters to vegetarians and vegans. ” written by Carla Torres.
According to Urban Daddy :
“Momo Sushi Shack, a temporary residence for Japanese whiskey and sushi bombs (we’ll get to those in a minute) straight out of Brooklyn, open tomorrow through October at the Mondrian. Take a look around (this slideshow might help). Yep, still the same beautiful Sunset Lounge. Except upon closer inspection, there’s Japanese whiskey. A lot of it. Gracing the bar. If you’ve deduced that something’s afoot, well, you’re right. Because the guys behind Bushwick’s eclectic sushi hang have temporarily taken over the space with their sashimi and maki know-how. And they’ve brought a pretty magnificent Japanese whiskey bar and sake menu with them, too. You’ll be with a date out on the patio, right as the sun is setting. You’ll start with some fried soft-shell crab and seared salmon belly, among other things.”
According to Hotel Chatter :
“Momo Sushi Shack, which opens this Thursday and will be open through October. New Yorkers may know Momo Sushi Shack from its location in cool-kid Bushwick. In addition to sushi, the Japanese restaurant serves a bunch of vegan and vegetarian dishes and, naturally, has a big focus on ingredients from indie and local purveyors. With arguably the best sunset views on the beach, thanks to its perch on the western side of South Beach, overlooking Biscayne Bay, Mondrian is a great spot for happy hour. So it makes sense that the Momo Sushi pop-up will be accompanied by a Japanese Whiskey Bar. Small plates will range from $6-$15 each, making this incredibly reasonable by Miami standards.”
