Acclaimed Peruvian Restaurant Opens First U.S. Location in Miami

On December 12, 2019, internationally acclaimed Nikkei restaurant Osaka opened the doors of its first North American location in Brickell.

The opening evening celebration featured an authentic Peruvian Daiko drumming blessing ceremony, a Peruvian Cajonero, a traditional Asian ceremonial Sake Keg tapping and a lively house set by DJs Hernan Nunzi and Antonio Briceno.

Since its inception in 2001 by friends Diego Herrera and Diego de la Puente in Lima, Peru, the concept has become the leading Nikkei reference in the South American region and the only Peruvian restaurant to top the rankings in most countries. The Miami location marks Osaka’s tenth restaurant, with an eleventh slated to open in London in 2020.

Chef Juan Alfonso Urrutia

Osaka is a multi-sensory experience, merging millenary Japanese techniques with traditional Peruvian flavors and ingredients. Chefs Rogger Quispe and Juan Urrutia curated a menu specifically for the Miami location that features signature highlights of the Nikkei menu as well as new creations to suit the dynamic venue.
