A Secretive and Upscale Omakasé Dining Experience at Sushi by Scratch

The intimate venue elevates the food adventure.

On a tucked away corner in Coconut Grove hides Sushi by Scratch. If you decide to go on this dining adventure, just look for the red light that will guide you to omakase paradise. It’s crazy how just that little light can bring on an unmatched anticipation as to what’s happening next. It’ll bring on true excitement. Once you spot the light that greets you from above, you’ll stand in front of a door that you will lightly knock on as you wonder if you are at the right place. Is this simply a residence? What is it? Then, you’ll realize that there’s a small plaque by the door with the restaurant’s name. And you’ll breathe a sigh of relief.

It’s time.

Sushi by Scratch makes you feel like pure royalty from the start. As you walk in, you are greeted with a welcome cocktail to start the night off right. And there is also a wall of wine bottles for sale, and on some select nights diners have a chance at mingling with wine experts and sommeliers before your delectable sushi experience.

After having the dining experience, we recommend coming to Sushi by Scratch about 20 minutes before your reservation. Not only will you be able to enjoy the above amenities, but you will also get to meet others that will be seated with you. Here, you come by to make new friends. You are there with others that enjoy fine dining and private experiences, which makes the dinner a special one.

Thanks to this, expect lots of laughs at a counter surrounding those ready to take care of your experience that sits only 10, surrounding the sushi chefs and master bartender. Every seat is carefully labeled with your name, so expect a little moment of being surprised. Who will you sit right next to?

Trust me when I tell you that you’ll have the ultimate blast with those who are there. The chefs are chatty, energetic and know how to read and entertain a room. This makes the experience cozy and fun and it’ll also make you feel like you are at a dinner table with close friends instead of people that you might have just met besides anyone in your party.

Let’s talk about the chefs. They are the ones creating the experience and are extremely professional and knowledgeable about what they are making for you. You will not only dine, but you will be educated on the art of fresh fish, ingredients and where they get all of these to make sure the sushi bites are perfect for their diners.

There is also a well-versed cocktail, wine and sake bartender expert available in the room, ready to answer any questions that you might have on what the perfect drink pairings are to accompany your omakasé. We recommend, if you can, to try out one of their sake or Japanese whiskey flights. If you love these spirits, you will be in heaven with their expansive and upscale selection of brands.

Sushi by Scratch offers interested diners three daily seatings at 5PM, 7:15PM and 9:30PM. With this, it should be said that reservations are crucial, especially with the intimacy of the dinner experience.

The experience includes nigiri bites that are is handmade and placed by the chefs, who engage directly with guests over 17 courses. The dinner lasts about two hours, and it’s worth every moment that you spend there.

Sushi by Scratch does not offer extras and no sidecars of soy sauce or wasabi. Everything is truly made from scratch. This includes the soy sauce, the vinegars, and everything that you’ll see the chefs prepare and serve you right before your eyes.

The bites are perfect to eat with your hands, and this is strictly recommended so you can enjoy all the flavors in front of you. There’s also a palate cleanser and warm sanitized towel that will assist you between you indulging on different nigiri bites of sushi.

All around, Sushi by Scratch is an unforgettable experience, one that is perfect for any occasion. They stay true to their name, and they make sure to serve you professionally and with outmost elegance. Don’t miss it.
