FYI: The ABCs on SAIA at B Ocean in FLL

In the fun-with-acronyms department, Fort Lauderdale's new B Ocean resort will open its high-end sushi-Southeast Asian restaurant, SAIA (999 Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.; 954-302-5252), this Friday.

Named for its location on the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and AIA, the contemporary Asianesque restaurant will feature a teppanyaki grill, sushi bar, open-air kitchen, and panoramic beachfront view.  

The menu will include "nouveau sushi" rolls (AKA wackymaki) like the

Fire Dragon roll (shrimp tempura, avocado, and snow crab topped with

spicy tuna and masago), along with not-quite-so-trendy dishes as tuna,

salmon, and whitefish uzuzukuri (thin-sliced fish with garlicky ponzu,

scallions, and arugula). There's also an extensive roster of sakes and

signature mixological cocktails. 

Top toque is Subin

Chenkorsorn, who comes to SAIA from a stint as lead sushi chef at SoBe's

tres hip Delano and is said to be heavily influenced by Thai street

food and travels through Southeast Asia and the Caribbean. Sounds like

he could have some chops, IMHO.
