Wynwood’s buzziest new restaurant can only seat eight. So, needless to say, you’ll need to snag a reservation.
The appropriately-named Hiden, a Japanese omakase counter, officially opens for business tomorrow, located in the back of the new Wynwood Mexican joint, the Taco Stand. Hiden is accessible only to those who enter a code (provided via email after you book your reservation) into a door in the back of the restaurant. The restaurant is now taking reservations via hidenmiami.com.
It’s not just Hiden’s secrecy that’s generating interest. The concept comes from some serious players: Shōwa Hospitality, a group that includes some key members of Edo Kobayashi. The latter hospitality group earned respect and admiration for its work in Mexico City’s Little Tokyo district. This is only their second restaurant in the States.
Dinner services will cost $120 and last for about two hours, taking you through appetizers, soup, eight to ten nigiri bites, an entree, dessert and tea. Omakase, for those not familiar, is a chef’s choice style dinner. Menus change daily and are left up to the discretion of the chef. It’s an exciting dining method that, when done properly, is equal parts thrilling and delicious.
And if Hiden’s pedigree is any indication, that’s exactly what you can expect.
