As proven by Blue Door Fish turning into Bianca, and the opening of FDR, the Delano is clearly trying to provide Miamians with a whole New Deal. It’s continuing the movement with Umi, which an untrained eye might assume was just an especially sexy corner of the lobby thanks to an open design that hosts nothing more than a low-hanging porcelain chandelier and a long communal table made of marble, but not Marble Madness, 'cause then your food would always end up falling off the edge.
The chef behind that bar will be happy to craft you shockingly creatively named rolls like the FDR (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, crab), the Delano (poached Maine lobster & Wagyu beef topped with black truffle), plus the Baked Crab hand roll covered in “dynamite” sauce, which should provide some very Good Times indeed.
If you’re Jeremy Piven and trying to keep your iodine intake down, hit "Cold Plates" like yellowtail serrano w/ jalapeño vinaigrette and truffle salt, yuzu-truffle-ponzu-covered salmon carpaccio, Japanese scallops, bluefin sashimi, and sweet shrimp.
Definitely make tons of hilarious “sake to me” jokes after perusing the extensive rice wine list, or suck down Japanese beers like Sapporo and Asahi Black, plus signature cocktails including the Sunset with L'Orange vodka, blood orange puree, and yuzu -- have enough, and just like our great president, you'll feel highly confident in your social security.
