Miku — Vancouver, Canada
In a city known for its sushi and the seaside, Miku manages to elevate both aesthetics. The second restaurant in Vancouver by Seigo Nakamura, who first introduced aburi sushi to Canada in 2007, Miku is a 5400-square-foot dining experience. Perched on the edge of the industrial waterfront, patrons can drink in unparalleled views of the surrounding ocean, mountains and shipping containers unloading at the Port of Vancouver whilst dining on a seafood rich menu, spiced up by the likes of brown butter wasabi prime rib and exotic rum and ginger beer cocktails (a tropical influence from Nakamura’s Miyazaki home). The interiors by local firm SSDG - highlighted by an undulating ceiling sculpture over a circular mosaic bar and custom murals by a Kyoto artist - are equally inviting.
