Part of Groot Hospitality

Sunlight is symbolic of Miami. But when the sun begins to set, an unspoken energy fills the air – the Magic City collectively gears up for a time full of possibility.

We connect Brickell, buzzing with excitement, with the mystique and allure of an unexpected Miami night – it’s where different elements of the city come together in perfect harmony, under the moon.

With elegant, yet relaxed interiors filled with mystery and style, we’ve masterfully brought together the elegance of an upscale steakhouse and the heritage, precision and modern flavors of Japanese cuisine.

Our menu was crafted to lean on flavors that are simple and clean, yet refined and upscale, spanning from premium steak to fresh sushi made with precision and flair. It’s through this sophisticated palette, paired with exciting drinks, that we reflect the evening ahead and pay homage to the exciting energy of the moonlight.
