With Bluefin and Racks shuttered, Mizner Park was suddenly sushi-less.
Capitalizing on an opportunity for tasty expansion, the team at Max’s Grille hired Tony Buemi—an experienced sushi chef who has previously worked at popular sushi destinations such as Nobu Milano, Racks, and most recently City Oyster—and got rolling.
Buemi introduced a menu of seven creative rolls pleasing to both the palate and the eyes and has plans to add more options in the near future.
Highlights of the current sushi selection include the Spicy Tuna Pop Roll (yellowfin tuna, spicy mayo, jalapeño, avocado, cucumber, and scallions topped with Pop Rocks, rice pearls, and wasabi sesame seeds), the Mizner Roll (hamachi, spicy tuna, avocado, cilantro, jalapeño, rice pearls, crispy shallots, and eel sauce), and the Long Beach Roll (Faroe Island salmon, cream cheese, scallions, avocado, sesame seeds, soy paper, and ikura).
Max’s sushi menu is currently available Tuesday through Saturday after 4 p.m. for dine-in and to-go orders, but it will expand to lunch (and daily) soon.
