Miami Beach is welcoming a new restaurant called Soho Bay, come summer 2014. According to general manager Rachel Young, the restaurant is the latest addition to the repertoire of a Brazilian restaurant group that owns five sushi restaurants in their home country and specializes in high-end Japanese concepts. For their first foray onto the U.S. dining scene, they're extending their concept, which in Brazil is called just "Soho," to a 200-seat waterfront location at 520 West Avenue. Young tells Eater that SoHo Bay will be an upscale restaurant featuring a showcase kitchen, sushi bar, lounge, indoor and patio seating.
As per the executive chef, that would be Antonio Quindere, a native Brazilian, who studied at the Gastrotur Culinary School in Lima, Peru and The Art Institute in San Diego, California. Most recently, Quindere worked under internationally recognized chef Alan Wong in Hawaii before joining the Soho Bay team, where his primary focus will be on modern Japanese cuisine with a sushi emphasis. No news yet on an official opening date, but stay tuned.
