$40 for a Prix Fixe Japanese-Italian Fusion Dinner for Two (Up to $80.85 Value)

From the prix fixe menu, meals include:

  • One appetizer (up to an $11.95 value)
  • Two entrees (up to an $18.95 value each)
  • One dessert (up to a $6 value)
  • One bottle of house wine or limoncello (a $25 value)

Start with bruschetta topped with fresh basil and tomato, or perhaps kani su—kani crab, masago, and avocado wrapped in a thin slice of cucumber. For the main course, choose from seven entrees, including American kobe meatballs, lasagna, and a Red Kryptonite sushi roll packed with spicy tuna, cream cheese, and avocado. Dessert is your pick of cannoli, New York–style cheesecake, or chocolate mousse. The meal is complemented perfectly by a bottle of house wine or housemade limoncello.

Rice & Dough

Pizza served alongside sushi and sake. Some might say it's an unusual collision of cuisines under one roof, but at Rice & Dough, Goran and Amy Perovic don't quite see it that way. "We consider ourselves an American restaurant featuring two favorite kinds of American food," Goran told SouthFlorida.com, explaining that today, both sushi and Italian food fall under the ever-growing umbrella of American cuisine.

No matter what you call it, Rice & Dough has made quite the impression since its 2012 opening, attracting the attention of the Miami Herald's Rochelle Koff, the Broward Palm Beach New Times's Tricia Woolfenden, and Examiner.com's Drew Berliner. Having something for everyone is likely part of its success; patrons in the mood for sushi can enjoy a collection of maki, including a Z Fantasy roll packed with shrimp tempura, eel, and avocado, prepared in plain sight by a skilled chef at the sushi bar. Italian-food lovers, meanwhile, can slice up and share a margherita pie or one of the other dozen pizzas handmade by Goran in the open kitchen. Other Italian offerings include platefuls of housemade lasagna and lunchtime paninis. Because he's a former sommelier, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Goran has also compiled an extensive wine list for his guests, featuring reds, whites, and plenty of sake.
