DÔA is a true neigh­bor­hood styled eatery that is af­ford­able, ca­sual and ap­proach­able. In Ja­panese DÔA [DOW – AH] means “The Door,” but in Mi­ami, how­ever, it sig­ni­fies an ex­cit­ing ven­ture by the global renowned restau­ra­teur, Ar­jun Waney. As an Asian Cantina con­cept, DÔA is quickly be­com­ing a fa­vorite hot spot by lo­cals and tourists alike – all look­ing for a com­fort­able and trendy environment with amaz­ing food (and cock­tails!) near Collins Park.

‘gate­way’ of sorts.”
