Housed on the seventh floor of the newly debuted Hyde Midtown Miami in Midtown is the first U.S. outpost of Salvaje, a Japanese fusion eatery with expansive views of the city and lively atmosphere.
Helmed by executive chef Fermin Azkue —with locations already in Madrid, Barcelona, Marbella, Ibiza, Panamà, and Colombia — the restaurant boasts a rotating sushi and omakase menu, along with heartier dishes with a Japanese twist like grilled and glazed lamb shanks; truffle and mushroom dumplings; rock shrimp tempura; smoked short rib; and branzino in a ponzu sauce that it filleted table side.
Drinks range from classics like Manhattans and Sazeracs to new creations that are named after “steamy and provocative sex scenes that impact the storyline of the film” like a Midnight Cowboy with Makers Mark bourbon, granny apple and beet, barley Shochu, vanilla miso and the Basic Instinct with Belvedere vodka, cherry, lychee, dry vermouth, and Jasmine tea.
Like many other restaurants located inside Hyde Hotels, this one features its over-the-top, whimsical decor in addition to its enviable views. The 170-seat rooftop area offers bamboo daybeds to watch the sunset, mismatched dining tables surrounded by bookshelves, gold rhino heads, oversized palms throughout, and a variety of ornate light fixtures.
The restaurant is now open nightly for dinner on Sunday to Thursday from 3 p.m. to midnight, and Friday and Saturday until 1 a.m. with a daily Sunset Hour offering drink specials from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information or reservations visit here.
