SAMBA THIS WAY
THERE’S NEVER A DULL MOMENT AT LINCOLN ROAD HOT (PARTY) SPOT SUSHISAMBA.
Your guide to the best of Miami’s dining, drinking, and nightlife.
Time is of the essence when it comes to the Brazilian-meets-peruvian-meets-japanese fusion restaurant Sushisamba. Take, for example, the aptly named Samba hour, which happens not once but twice a day—thursday through Sunday from 4 to 7 PM and 11 to close (either 1 or 2 AM, depending on the night). Expect $5 caipirinhas (the national drink of Brazil) and $7 spicy ginger martinis and sushi yellowtail jalapeño rolls, as well as samba dancers and live musical entertainment along with an eclectic crowd celebrating life in Miami. Sound like a good time? It is, and so is the weekend brunch, featuring bottomless Champagne showers, quinoa pancakes, and Brazilian feijoada, a black bean and trio of meat (shredded pork, seared beef, and carnes asada) stew chockfull of white rice, collard greens, farofa, and fresh orange slices. You know what they say: Vitamin C is the ultimate hangover cure, especially when combined with some hair of the dog. 600 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-673-5337; sushisamba.com
