ABOUT ŌKAMI RESTAURANT AND TSUKI LOUNGE

ŌKAMI RESTAURANT  & TSUKI LOUNGE — a sophisticated and wholly unique restaurant and lounge in the Design District. Founded by partners actor William Levy and Pedro Orihuela, Ōkami will offer a multi-sensory Nikkei and Nikkei Omakase experiences unlike any other and Tsuki Lounge will offer a world class mixology program.

ŌKAMI means the great wolf and Tsuki means moon in Japanese. Like an urban wolf den looking at the moon, the provocative double-height spaces are finished in sleek natural stone, granite and crystal. From the open dining room to the sushi bar with its view into the hot kitchen, to the show-stopping second floor bar and lounge, private balcony and alfresco patio seating, every one of the 170 seats in the house is part of an exciting, earthy-but-elevated environment and a vibrant, white-hot energy.

As guests enter this Design District location, adjacent to Prada and across from Chanel, the first floor leads to outdoor seating in the Jade courtyard, surrounded by limestone facades and landscaped with lush foliage. The main dining room is guarded by a mural called “Nikkei Geisha” designed by Ruben Ubiera, a neo-figurative post-graffism artist from Dominican Republic, talks about the Peruvian Nikkei Culture.

Our stunning mural on top of our first floor Omakase Sushi Bar called Silent Sky by Umberto Stagni from Italy, orient is his inspiration, a place where nature, the symbolism of fantastic myths and surreal light visions are a constant nourishment for fantasy. Umberto chooses the themes of play and flight through a harmonic and fluid twine of subjects with a striking impact and bold colours.

The main bar and lounge on the second floor is accessed by stairs and back elevator. The majestic second level features panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the street below, giving the entire space an airy, terrace-like feel. A black granite bar lines the room, with private lockers available for clients who like to store their own libations on the premises. At the south end of the room, a VIP area opens onto a private balcony overlooking the Jade courtyard. 

On our main lounge to the north end of our second floor, we feature our “Japanese Kamasutra, the art of lovemaking” designed by Wuilfredo Soto, a visual artist from Caracas Venezuela. 

From the channeled banquettes to the granite tables and bars to the chandeliers, every inch of Ōkami and Tsuki are finished with impeccable detail.

Ōkami Restaurant  and Tsuki Lounge will be a powerhouse of the best hospitality talent from within Miami and beyond.  

Our menu offers Nikkei classics, including nigiri sushi using the freshest Peruvian ingredients full of umami flavors. A vast array of sushi, sashimi, nigiri and fresh seafood is artfully prepared each night. Traditional and Nikkei Omakase platters and Izakaya sharing style plates are menu highlights, and other signature dishes include fresh vegetables, seafood and fish. 

Ōkami’s mixology program created by Angel Ross, brings a team of accomplished, inventive, meticulous and charismatic cocktail artisans together to create crave-worthy tasting experiences, and a truly vibrant bar atmosphere that welcomes regular guests like family. Ōkami is an inspired choice as an event venue, a fun night out, an intimate dinner for two, or your favorite regular bar scene. 

And like the wolf, Ōkami is 100% devoted to its pack.

PEDRO ORIHUELA

INVESTOR & OPERATOR

Pedro Orihuela, Investor & Operator, began investing in restaurants with the opening of Casa España Tapas Y Vinos in Pembroke Pines. As a chemical engineer and international oil and gas consultant by trade, Orihuela applies the same dedication he uses in studying deep water drilling to developing cost models for his portfolio of fine dining restaurants.  At the end of December 2019, he expanded with Level Twentynine, an upscale Nikkei-inspired restaurant and lounge, with celebrity partner William Levy.

After graduating from Northeastern University with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Orihuela began his career as an engineer in his native Venezuela. He worked in various positions in the oil and gas field, solidifying his reputation as one of the top technology experts in Latin America. He is currently the President of UDSS Inc, a multinational oil and gas consulting company. In 2013, Orihuela received an Executive Certification in Strategy and Innovation from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Orihuela also owns real estate holdings in South Florida.

For his latest venture, Ōkami, Orihuela once again tapped Levy to be his partner. Located in Miami’s trendy Design District, Ōkami, will feature a gourmet Nikkei menu, a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. “I’m passionate about cooking,” Orihuela says. “I’m a hands-on operator, not a silent investor.” Orihuela’s recipe for success is based on the pillars of service, environment, operations and, of course, flavor—all of which is perfectly calculated with his own unique cost model. “There are so many moving parts in managing a restaurant,” he notes. “It’s a lot of work, almost an art form, and I love every aspect of the business.”
