Sushi Nakazawa Pop-Up@Miami

Sushi Nakazawa Pop-Up at Four Seasons Miami. Not Jiro's type of Sushi. Too Americanized... or better categorized as "Fusion Omakase". Daisuke Nakazawa, apprentice of Jiro (Dreams of Sushi), seems to be a hype in America. Wasn't sure about the sashimi with strawberry, unless if they have a really good reason. Mediocre service. They only talked to people they know. When we were at Jiro Sukiyabashi in Tokyo,  we asked Jiro's team about Nakazaya. Unfortunately, they told us that they felt like they have been betrayed (their name was being used). 19-Course for $250 per person. Sake was overpriced. However, this review is specific to the pop-up menu. Went to their Michelin-star New York location in 2019. It was ok but not wow. Dinner was 2 hours. LA branch opening soon.

Here is Jiro Sukiyabashi at Roppongi Hills location for comparison:
