Miami New Times' Description
"Enso is an evolutionary solutions workshop which creates the scientific study of deliciousness." So begins the insanely inventive, thoroughly audacious menu at this new sushi/hibachi/Mediterranean deconstructionist establishment on Lincoln Road. Each of a dozen main courses is categorized as "Study," "Analysis," or "Inspiration"; some come fragmented into four. Yellowtail, for instance, brings hamachi meatballs; a "terrine" of raw hamachi slices with diced apple and pine-nut crisp; hamachi "ravioli" wrapped around diced fruit and foamed with basil; and pliable "chips" of fish with "clarified gazpacho." Each component thrilled, as did all four parts of a chocolate dessert (ranging in form from Kit Kat bar to caviar). Sushi is solid too, and a few ceviches and tiraditos are offered. Yet another option (and best bang for the buck at $19) is to choose from a list of meat, fish, and vegetable skewers - served with rice, flour tortillas, salad, and potato croquette - and cook them at a tableside hibachi. Fancier entrées run $28 to $32. Enso's cuisine surprises with its inventiveness and audacity, but what really shocks is just how tasty most of it is.
Tips from foursquare
Don't waste your time or your money.
Wow, they just automatically double the tax for a tip??? And, my soda was $4?? Damn
My first time in my Miami and I had claudio as a waiter. He was the best! Idk what everyone else was saying, the service was on point :))
Not worth it. Service was bad (asked for water 2x, asked for SamAdams they had none, asked for AmstelLite got Heineken). Only redeeming factor was the greeter who danced the whole time we sat there
Food was ok, but no service at all!!! No one asked me if the food was good, or if I needed anything else and the waiters all they do is talk, dance and nothing else. Waited for 30 min for the check
