Juvia Brings a Higher Level of Dining

Sometimes, all you really need is a change of scenery and some good food. Luckily for South Floridians, you won’t need to tread far for this one.

Recently opened at 1111 Lincoln Road, Juvia is raising the bar (or the elevator) for sophisticated eaters in Miami. The restaurant is located on the penthouse level of the visually stunning building which can be accessed on the corner of Lincoln Road and Lennox Avenue. There, private elevators transport guests to the top where you’ll encounter an alluring oasis made to entice your every sense from the Amazon Rainforest-inspired vertical garden to the unobstructed views of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay.

East meets west at Nobu, a New York eatery specializing in Japanese food cultivated to fit the ultra picky American palate. The calming beauty of the Japanese countryside is evoked with the carefully implemented accents of natural textures, golden wooden floors, and birch tress. Take a seat at the bar and enjoy Nobu’s trendy take on iced sake, which trickles out of iced bamboo pitchers with the pure flavor of melted snow. Glance past the wall made of river stones and you may see Robert DeNiro, a partial owner of this sashimi palace.
