Zuma Miami Celebrates Over 10 Years with a Complete Revamp

Updated: Aug 29, 2021

In celebration of the milestone 10-year anniversary of its first U.S. location, internationally acclaimed celebrity hotspot Zuma Miami has announced that they will be undergoing a globally-inspired revamp this summer. Since opening its doors in 2010, the location has and will continue to bring its style of modern Japanese izakaya dining from the robata grill and kitchen to its Miami guests. During this limited time, “Zuma Alfresco” will launch; an outdoor oasis located on their famed waterfront terrace while updates take place within its interiors, beginning mid-August until mid-October.

“As a global brand, we are in-tune with giving our guests a worldly experience and as time passes, we like to continue to find ways to be ahead of trends in the dining and hospitality realm,” said Chef Rainer Becker, creator and co-founder of Zuma. “Miami was our first entrance into the United States, and we were able to bring something very special to the Downtown area which at that point was unfamiliar. Soon after, it became a catalyst for further growth of luxury brands. With this design refresh, we are again initiating the next wave of signature experiences, which will include the newest components from all the Zuma’s worldwide.”

Having opened during a time where international concepts had traditionally taken South Beach by storm, it is undeniable that Zuma Miami was one of the original restaurants to put the Greater Downtown Miami and Brickell area on the map. After Miami, Zuma continued to develop and expand its nationwide reach expanding to New York, Las Vegas, and Boston.

“When we first came to the States, we embraced the American market, incorporating new design and food flavors.” said Rainer Becker. “It’s a game changer seeing after over a decade how Zuma Miami’s influence continues to grow and affirms what we had hoped would happen. With our newest updates to the location, we are welcoming guests to the future of Zuma that showcases the best design that our concept has to offer.”

Over the past 10 years, Zuma Miami has kept true to their high standards as pioneers of global dining, creating a benchmark and much-loved culinary destination in the city. The revamp celebrates Zuma’s vision and the next decade of style and innovation with fresh, newly minted décor and menu offerings. Bringing Chef Rainer Becker’s internationally acclaimed style of modern Japanese izakaya dining, the concept continues to focus on developing their employees and attracting talent from all over the world.

While the transformation takes place indoors, “Zuma Alfresco” will be fully operational from Sunday – Thursday (6:00 p.m. — 11:00 p.m.) and Friday – Saturday (6:00 p.m. — 11:30 p.m.). The outdoor concept will be offering the full menu and their famed brunch on Saturday (11:30 a.m. — 3:00 p.m.) and Sunday (11:30 a.m. — 3:30 p.m.). With the entrance located through the lobby of the Epic Hotel, the limited-time concept will feature a decorated greenery archway that leads guests into the outdoor terrace. The dining area will feature air conditioning fans will be placed throughout.
