You’ll find Azabu inside The Stanton hotel, and if you’re looking for a fancy night out in South Beach involving raw fish, it’s a solid choice. Azabu isn’t cheap, but it is delicious. It’s cozy and dim, with indoor and outdoor seating - as well as a special private dining room called The Den, which is where Azabu’s omakase takes place. A meal there will cost somewhere around $150-220 per person, but you can still have a great dinner just ordering things like thinly-sliced sliced hamachi jalapeño and the nigiri platter a la carte.
