This Midtown Newcomer Offers Upscale Japanese Cuisine and Expansive Rooftop Views

Marking the first location for Salvaje in the U.S.

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.
