Kona Grill, Inc., an American grill and sushi bar, announced the opening of its newest restaurant in Miami on October 2.

The new Kona Grill is located at the Dolphin Mall, a 1.4-million-square foot regional dining and entertainment supercenter, and is part of a mall expansion featuring new dining options. The mall is located near the Miami-Dade International Airport, the Port of Miami, multiple major corporations and colleges, and millions of square feet of office space. The restaurant features distinctive dining areas that include an indoor-outdoor patio and bar, exhibition kitchen, sushi bar, and a lounge area. The restaurant also contains modern design elements, such as water and fire features, and a signature 1,300-gallon saltwater aquarium.

"We are excited to bring our innovative American kitchen, award-winning sushi, and designer cocktails to Miami. Miami is our third restaurant in Florida, a state which offers us tremendous new restaurant growth opportunities," says Berke Bakay, president and CEO. "The Dolphin Mall is also one of the highest grossing retail destination centers in the country and a great fit for our brand. We anticipate the large commercial presence and year-round tourism, combined with our position in the mall expansion, the stunning look and feel of our restaurant, and our unique menu offerings, will make Kona Grill the preferred restaurant of choice for years to come."
