V&E Restaurant Group and Fabric Group LATAM have come together to introduce a new concept to the Brickell dining scene with Paperfish Sushi, a contemporary Tokyo-inspired izakaya with masterfully crafted Nikkei cuisine using the finest seasonal ingredients.
Here, artfully crafted dishes resplendent with Japanese elegance are combined with the seasonal tastes of Peru in a welcoming, modern-meets-traditional environment.
“With Paperfish Sushi, we saw an opportunity to fill a void in the Brickell market with an approachable sushi restaurant that is upbeat and modern, with a sense of speakeasy cool,” said CEO Matias Pesce. “Despite the pandemic, people need to work, dine, and socialize. This is a key step towards the sustainability of our industry, people, and community.”
Opening daily for lunch through late night, Paperfish Sushi will be serving up creative cocktails highlighting an interplay of fresh Japanese and tropical flavors, alongside an international selection of spirits, sake, wines, beers, and champagnes. In the later hours, programming will infuse energy to evolve the mood into a more lounge atmosphere, while a robust delivery program ensures diners can enjoy their favorite dishes in the comfort of their home.
A warm, social dining experience will also be encouraged with a mix of small and main plates perfect for sharing. The menu is broken up into sections of Zenzai (appetizers), Raw Bar, Salads, Sushi, and Tokusen (mains), with daily executive lunch and Omakase tasting menus available.
Start with Hamachi Crispy Rice (Jalapenos, Negi, and Ginger Oroshi), Ishiyaki Del Mar (Squid, Octopus, Shrimp, Japanese Butter), and Wagyu Bao (Wasabi, Mayo, Ebi Crab salad, Mayo, Chives, Shitake Mushrooms, Truffle Sauce), followed by Tiradito Apassionado (Salmon, Passion Fruit, Philo strips, Rocoto), Smoked Ceviche (Shiromi, Octopus, Shrimp, Smoked Rocoto, Canchita) and Nikkei Tuna (Peruvian yellow sauce, Foie gras) from the Raw Bar. Signature Nigiri, Maki, and Hand Rolls play with Japanese and Puruvian flavors like the San Snow (crab, smoked rocoto, Parmesan, bread crumbs), Torch Wagyu (Uni, Ginger Wasabi), and Tuna Toro (Tuna Tartar, Avocado, Toro Torch, Nikkei sauce, Chives).
