New Miami Restaurant: Osaka – Peru’s Acclaimed Nikkei Restaurant to Debut
Internationally acclaimed Nikkei restaurant Osaka marks its North American debut with its Miami location slated to open its doors during the first quarter of 2019 in Brickell. A multi-sensory experience, Osaka merges millenary Japanese techniques with the best Peruvian flavors and ingredients. The Osaka brand currently operates in South America with nine restaurants and amasses a gross revenue of $20 million. Due to its massive success, the restaurant chain is due to open in Miami, making it the 10th location and followed by London in 2020.
Osaka was conceptualized in 2001 by Diego Herrera and Diego de la Puente, two friends whose surfing world travels (specifically in Europe and Asia) resulted in the creation of arestaurant influenced by both their Peruvian roots and their love and passion for the ocean and the Asian culture. Sixteen years later, what started as a pop-up became the leading Nikkei reference in the region, and the only Peruvian restaurant to top the rankings in most countries in South America.
