Rihanna, Leonardo DiCaprio and Prince Harry are fans of the Chinese-Japanese Novikov Restaurant & Bar, now famous in London, Dubai and Moscow.
Chef-owner Arkady Novikov—one of the most successful restaurateurs in Moscow—recently opened his first U.S. outpost inside the Met 1 condo towers at 300 S. Biscayne Blvd. The menu includes robata grill and wok dishes and an impressive dim sum and sushi selection. Expect lavish fare like slow-poached quail-egg gunkan with truffle, Novikov Peking duck with royal caviar, black-cod rolls and A5 wagyu sirloin with chili daikon. While the food is sure to impress, this seen-and-be-seen establishment also has an impeccable design (with views of Biscayne Bay), thanks to world-renowned hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany.
Indulging may not improve global diplomatic relations, but it will leave your belly pleased.
