NAOE, chef Kevin Cory’s Japanese restaurant located in Miami’s Brickell Key, is a romantic restaurant — especially if you and your date are raw fish lovers. There’s something very sexy about the colors, textures and flavors found in fine sushi, especially when you’re eating with your hands. It’s an intimate space by design: The restaurant never seats more than eight diners at a time, spread among a five-seat bar overlooking the open kitchen, a table that seats up to six, and a table that seats two. So if you’re seated at the two-top and everyone else is at the bar, it’s almost like you’re dining in your own private restaurant. Soft classical music plays in the background while dim lighting creates an elegant feel. Service at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is also exemplary and your hostess/server Wendy Maharlika will help create a warm and friendly ambiance while setting the stage for intimate moments.
