A Miami-Dade-based restaurant will be expanding into Broward County this summer. The growing South American-style chain, SuViche, will be opening its newest location in Fort Lauderdale, delivering its Japanese and Peruvian fusion in a fast-casual setting.
Concept creators and owners Aliosha and Andrei Stern launched the first SuViche five years ago in Brickell, and have since added two more locations in Miami Beach and Wynwood, where the restaurant has become popular for its healthy, fresh, and affordable fare.
According to the Sterns, a move to Broward was the next logical step.
"We were searching for a new location, and with three locations already in Miami, we decided it was time to bring the concept to a different environment," said Andrei. "Las Olas seems to us to be the best place. We're very excited to bring this concept to Fort Lauderdale crowd."
The new restaurant will offer fast casual service and SuViche's largest menu to day ranging from appetizers like spring rolls and sushi, to ceviche, tiradito, and Peruvian-style specialty dishes or desserts. In addition to sake, wine, and beer, the restaurant will also be home to the city’s first Pisco bar, said Andrei, an homage to Peru's national liquor. More than 15 cocktails including macerados (or homemade Pisco infusions flavored with fruits, spices, and herbs), Pisco sours, and flavored Pisco mixed with ginger ale and bitters.
Keep an eye out for some of SuViche's more popular menu items, including the White Hot Heat sushi roll, traditional-style ceviche, and Peruvian specialties like saltado (chicken breast, steak, or seafood sautéed with red and green onions, tomatoes, and a homemade lomo sauce), gallina (shredded chicken breast in an aji amarillo cream sauce on top of sliced Idaho potatoes and chopped walnuts), pescado escabeche (white fish breaded and fried with Japanese panko breadcrumbs), and arroz chaufa (a Peruvian take on Cantonese-style fried rice).
SuViche will open their newest location later this summer at 401 East Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. The 2,900-square-foot space can seat up to 150 guests, including outdoor seating via the restaurant's covered patio. Keeping with the SuViche theme, the new restaurant will feature colorful art and tabletop décor created by local artists, and unique lighting fixtures.
Once open, SuViche promotions will include Sushi Tuesdays — buy one roll, get the second at half-price — as well as a daily happy hour, and ladies night. Lunch specials will be also available, in addition to online ordering and delivery available to the surrounding area.
SuViche Fort Lauderdale is expected to open later this summer. The restaurant will be located at 401 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Visit suviche.com.
