The chef behind Wabi Sabi is opening a sleek new Wynwood restaurant

We know it’s tough to keep up with all the restaurant openings in Wynwood, but Hiyakawa is one you should definitely keep an eye on. It would be intriguing enough if Chef Shuji Hiyakawa were the only name attached to it. He—in case you didn’t know—is one of our favorite chefs in town and the creator of the very, very delicious Wabi Sabi (which you can find in Time Out Market Miami soon too). But, for this new concept, Chef Shuji teams up with Alvaro Perez Miranda, an art dealer and restaurateur whose resume includes launching Vagabond Restaurant & Bar.

Hiyakawa will do what Chef Shuji does best: authentic Japanese cuisine and uncompromising quality. The menu will tackle agemono (deep-fried dishes), yakimono (grilled or pan-fried plates), shirumono (soups), zensai (appetizers), sushi and sake. A $100-per-person omakase menu will also be available.

The interior renderings of this place look pretty sexy too, giving off some serious futuristic Ex Machina vibes. A slice of Hiyakawa will also house another outpost of Wabi Sabi, which specializes in donburi sushi bowls that we can not recommend more highly.

Right now, the restaurant is slated to open in fall 2019.
