Korean-Japazilian chef Emerson Kim and his Latvian wife honed their skills at Nobu (yes, that Nobu). You will find a grand total of zero items with cream cheese, but perhaps more surprising are the shockingly fair prices. The R$125 omakase (chef's menu) is not only extraordinary, it's extraordinary value.
It's tucked away on the Roof, a sleek nightclub atop one of Floripa's most upscale hotels. Reservations essential.
