Osaka is an upscale Nikkei spot in Brickell that’s not much different than most other upscale Brickell restaurants. It’s big, expensive, and has a not-so-subtle modern design that makes you feel like you’re inside one of those glossy architecture magazines. The food here is a mix of Japanese and Peruvian and includes ceviches, tiraditos, sushi, and some bigger entrees. Presentation is big here - and chances are whatever you order will look more interesting than it tastes. The Niku Tartar is made in an elaborate tableside preparation that includes shaved foie gras, quail eggs, and edible flowers - but even after all of that, it tastes pretty bland. There are some good dishes though - like the crispy quinua makimono - but they’re outnumbered by the disappointing ones. If you do end up here, stick to sushi.
