Helmed by award-winning Chefs Rogger Quispe and Juan Urrutia, Osaka is a multi-sensory experience that merges millenary Japanese techniques with the best Peruvian flavors and ingredients. The Osaka brand currently successfully operates in South America with 9 restaurants, making Miami the 10th location, followed by London in 2020. Osaka was conceptualized in 2001 by Diego Herrera and Diego De La Puente, two friends whose surfing world travels resulted in the creation of a restaurant influenced by both their Peruvian roots and their love and passion for the ocean and for Asian culture and cuisine. Sixteen years later, what started as a pop-up became the leading Nikkei reference in the region. It is also the only Peruvian restaurant to top the rankings in most countries in South America. Osaka’s design is Japanese-inspired, infusing modern architecture, feng shui and signature Peruvian accents. Offering visitors a new experience, the Miami venue will introduce new dishes while retaining signature staple highlights of the Nikkei menu; 1300 Brickell Bay Dr., Ste.
