Waiters greet and bid farewell to guests in traditional Japanese. The menu is primarily focused on sushi from both Japanese and Californian venues, though other takes on Japanese cuisine are available for those who don’t prefer sushi including Japanese steak and other hot dishes. For drinks Katsuya offers a variety of specialty cocktails based on Asian flavors including a jasmine margarita and a cucumber mojito. They also serve a wide variety of wines and Japanese sakes.
The Bazaar by Jose Andre is The Redbury South Beach’s final partnership cuisine destination and is located with Katsuya in the sbe Hotel. The Bazaar focuses on Spanish traditional courses with some Latin influences mixed in. Lots of seafood is featured, fresh from the ocean, as well as local freshwater fish. Traditional Spanish pork dishes are also in abundance with some chicken dishes as well. The décor for The Bazaar is a play on traditional fine dining.
At a glance the restaurant looks typical with a large chandelier, warm lighting, and plush wooden chairs pulled around elegant marble tables. However, closer inspection will reveal playful elements. For instance, the large and elegant chandelier might seem like a standard bronze piece, but looking closer will reveal that the entire thing looks like it’s made from oversized pipe cleaners. The art is also anything but classical, focusing more on the modern and flavorful elements common to the South Beach scene.
