Just when we thought Miami was inching away from raw fish trend, in comes Katsuya to school our already oceanic culture on some fine Asian dining, as rendered by Miami favorite Philippe Starck. Located in the brand new SLS hotel, Katsuya boasts all the elegant simplicity of Japan, in both aesthetic and its classic dishes: crispy rice with spicy tuna and miso-marinated black cod are more traditional than nuevo sushi. As this is one of the hottest new openings of the year, be prepared to shell out — but you wouldn't have made reservations if painting the town red was not a part of your agenda.
Katsuya, like the sleek Frenchman who designed it, is sharp, edgy, and dramatic. So pull out some geometric pieces and stack 'em, making sure you've got the punch while staying minimal. Up the intensity with some leather garments, blocky statement shoes, and a bold red lip. Then casually drop that, as the jet-setter you are, you've been to all Katuyas, but this one is definitely the best.Katsuya at the SLS Hotel, 1701 Collins Avenue; 305-455-2995.
