Fodor's Expert Review Zen Sai

$$$ South Beach Asian Fodor's Choice

In Miami's vortex of the fake and fabulous, it's rare to find a venue that's effortlessly cool, but Zen Sai is exactly that. The petite Asian eatery encompasses a small bar area and a small art deco–steeped dining veranda, enjoying a low profile among its larger-than-life neighbors. Dishes reflect a gastronomic tour of north Asia, largely focused on Japanese items for the American palate like robata-grilled meats and sushi rolls. There's an extensive sake list to match, but don't forgo an opportunity to sample some of the beach's best cocktails. Zen Sai's artisanal libations remain true to the craft of cocktail making, using fresh and exotic ingredients for stellar results (lychee martinis with Kumosabe Nigori sake, Finlandia vodka, house-infused lychee syrup, and fresh lemon juice).
