Temaris If you’re on the hunt for something new and eclectic, look no further than Temaris. Founder Alexander Perroni opened his new restaurant’s doors in Brickell a few months ago, introducing a unique and exciting concept to the area. The restaurant gets its name from the spot’s modern take on sushi. A temari consists of a bite-sized rice ball, layered with protein and add-ons for a significant, full flavor. Open for lunch and dinner, Temaris patrons order at the counter from a selection of upscale à la carte fare like ceviche, tataki, tartare, and of course, the delectable sushi fusion mains. Perroni, inspired by Japanese cuisine, sought out the temaris technique with a desire to deliver something more than the traditional oversized sushi rolls. His recipes call upon Peruvian influences, with 17 sauces to choose from in an array of different flavors that take a Japanese tradition and serve it up with a Latin twist. Topping off the concept with an extensive selection of Japanese beers and unfiltered Sakes, Temaris is truly a unique new gem in the Brickell neighborhood. 305.836.2747; 1250 S.
