Disclaimer: this is definitely NOT your everyday sushi spot. Novikov meshes Chinese and Japanese concepts to include an extensive menu that will make your taste buds explode with flavor! Dim sum, wok, robata grill and an extensive selection of sushi. The culinary world is not unknown to Novikov’s signature flavors as this is their fourth location, after Moscow, London and Dubai.
What to expect: Novikov’s indoor and outdoor space plays with Asian elements in a very tasteful way bringing to life, Miami’s newest hot spot for dinner and drinks. Oh and celebrity citings are a definite possibility.
The Menu: Dinner at Novikov, is à la carte. They have a variety of appetizers, oysters, sushi/sashimi/nigiri/maki, dim sum, Peking duck, robata, fish, and wok. Consider all your Asian taken care of.
What to order:
Novikov duck salad: Don’t let the word salad throw you off, this was our all-time favorite at Novikov. A little hill ofmesclun greens sprinkled with pomegranate and pine nuts but most importantly, topped with best Peking duck you’ll ever get your hands on. The skin was crisp to perfection yet the meat itself was tender, giving the salad texture.
A5 Wagyu Foie Gras Sushi: Delicious mixture of flavors, wagyu is just mildly seared. Keep in mind, only 2 pieces per order.
Hamachi Carpaccio shaved truffle: Great appetizer, the hamachi is thinly shaved and truffles are placed on top, if you love truffles, this dish is a must. Good for 2 guests as an appetizer.
Maine lobster tempura: Think popcorn-style lobster with dipping sauces (chipotle was our fave), comfort style food at it’s best.
Rainbow naruto: Delicious roll rolled in cucumber, no rice, so if you’re on a low carb diet, this one is for you!
