Asia Bay serves the "best sushi in this town," according to actor Alec Baldwin, who tweeted his recommendation while in Fort Lauderdale to film Rock of Ages, according to pbpulse. The man behind this A-list-worthy cuisine is executive chef and co-owner Peter Hepp, who according to Miami New Times "is hip to the aesthetic of clean lines, vivid colors, and brightly delineated flavors." Hepp's chefs drizzle the menu's more than 60 sushi and sashimi plates with colorful sauces as carefully as painters adorn canvas, yielding dishes that are as nice to look at as they are to eat. The 50-seat dining room operates under a similarly modern theme, with large picture windows, white leather chairs, and curved-back banquettes which Social Miami calls "minimalist-chic."
Outside, a patio held up by stilts lifts diners above the rippling waves of the Tarpon River, helping garner Asia Bay an OpenTable Diners' Choice Award for Best Outdoor Dining. Here the decor invites relaxation with large parasols, old-fashioned street lamps, and seagulls who will give backrubs for fresh-cut sashimi.
A 1,200-gallon aquarium greets diners as soon as they enter Tokyo Blue, an upscale Pan-Asian restaurant located inside the Ocean Manor. Situated on 200 feet of private beach, this elegant eatery features modern flourishes such as glowing glass columns, glossy blue floors, and a full bar illuminated by blue lights. Once the clock strikes 10:30 p.m., a DJ helps transform this chic space into a hopping nightclub, where patrons can refuel with a late-night menu or journey onto a second-story patio ideal for basking in the ocean air and high-fiving the occasional flying fish.
Against this trendy backdrop, Chef Mai—who earned his cooking chops at the popular Miami restaurant Nobu—simmers tenderloin in green curry, drizzles shichimi butter on baked Maine lobster, and pan-sears Chilean sea bass in 25-year aged balsamic and teriyaki sauce. Meanwhile, sushi chef Jo skillfully assembles 30 specialty rolls, including classics such as the California roll as well as eclectic mash-ups such as the Mexican roll with shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy mayo, cream cheese, and sesame seeds.
