If you’re in town for only one meal, eat here. Hidden within a nondescript taco joint is what may be the best sushi restaurant in Miami. The roughly painted wall slides open to the big reveal: chef Tadashi Shiraishi searing tuna to perfection or slicing yellowtail snapper with the skill of an artist. Born in Brazil and raised on his grandmother’s traditional Japanese cooking, Shiraishi runs the kitchen, while his wife handles the front of house. You won’t see even the suggestion of a spicy tuna roll here—everything served at Hiden is true to traditional Japanese cuisine, like firefly squid or octopus blanched and tenderized in a dashi and sencha broth. Dinner at Hiden is sixteen courses long and $130 per person—and don’t expect a menu. It changes daily depending on what’s fresh and what fish has arrived from Japan, flown in twice a week.
