Sora - A brand-new hotspot that's as fresh as it is funky, Sora combines the art of sushi with the style of South Beach. Sora — meaning "blue sky" in Japanese — features a full bar offering eclectic and handcrafted drinks elegantly branded as "divine" and "distinct" or "savory" and "sumptuous." It's truly a culinary art form fused with South Florida chic.
With style to spare and a to-die-for menu, Sora is a creative venue for dinner, and a funky, hip vibe makes it the place to be seen. Our specialty sushi ranges from startlingly fresh sashimi and the ever-popular dragon roll, to our signature cucumber roll. Larger dishes are available in the evening hours, including exotic peking duck and miso-glazed Chilean sea bass.

Sunset Sam's Fish Camp - With its landmark mast towering overhead, this "harbor of hip" as it's called, will whisk you back to the days of Ernest Hemingway sitting dockside with oversized cocktails.
Start your experience by stepping aboard the 60' sailboat for an appetizer. A tropical oasis of excitement, Sunset Sam's menu is a creative fusion of Floridian and Caribbean favorites, with a variety of fresh seafood prepared to your preferred specifications.
Begin with appetizers aboard the sailboat, including crab cakes, conch fritters, "cigar" shrimp and Prince Edward Island Mussels. If the atmosphere – and the island-style music – fail to seduce your senses, the sinful desserts will. At sunset, a lively celebration begins, giving an excuse to party every night.
