MILA Omakase, which hosted celebrity guests such as Kamal Hotchandani, Food God, and Luis Fonsi on its first week of operation, allows guests to embark on an unexpected culinary journey inspired by the 52 Japanese micro-seasons. Time stops as guests enter the enclosed room where the dramatic omakase countertop and 10 seats are revealed. The omakase experience has about 15 courses with additional wine and sake pairing options. Guests can enjoy a front-row seat as Executive Chef Reiji Yoshizawa creates innovative dishes using the finest ingredients and artful creativity, all under the direction of Riviera Dining Group’s Head of Culinary, Chef Michaël Michaelidis. MILA Omakase is open every Wednesday through Sunday with two seatings per night (6:30 p.m. or 9:30 p.m.) 

The ultra-luxe, MM Club, provides its Members with a unique and exclusive cozy destination. Its dark and warm space provides a glamorous twist to the conventional speakeasy for guests who desire a refined culinary journey curated by Michelin Star Chef Mike Collantes, while sipping on expertly crafted cocktails in a vibey atmosphere.

MILA’s various elevated experiences successfully kicked off the Miami high season, and now looks forward to continuing serving the local clientele while welcoming all visitors in the next few weeks.
