The restaurant will be built at the historic East Coast Fisheries site on the Miami River, as part of the second phase of Melo Group’s Flagler On The River. Plans are pending approval by city officials and the Miami River Commission.
Melo plans to build a three-story, 17,000 square foot building that incorporates the foundation of the East Coast Fisheries building, built in 1925 (the foundation is all that remains). The architect is ITEC Design.
SushiSamba’s other Miami location is on Lincoln Road.
