Inspired by Brazil’s annual Carnaval celebration, Sushi Samba serves up fusion fare with vivacious and contemporary cocktails to match. Three cultures—Japanese technique, bold Brazilian flavors and Peruvian traditions—combine to create a single and distinctive culinary concept, while the restaurant offers a range of well-sourced items from the kitchen, full-service sushi bar, raw bar and robata grill. While, yes, the restaurant is part of a chain (with sister spots in New York, Chicago, Miami and Tel Aviv), Sushi Samba manages a unique vibe without the cookie-cutter feel. Meanwhile, the adjacent Sugarcane lounge boasts one of the largest sake lists in the country, with more than 125 bottles on hand.
