DÔA Miami Beach Arjun Waney's latest restaurant serves Chifa duck, sushi, and churros, and we're into it Words by vanessa Pascale Renowned restauranteur Arjun Waney's —the man behind popular restaurants like Zuma and Coya— latest eatery, DÔA (pronounced dow- ah), is reeling in foodies from all over with their expansive terrace, simple yet chic décor, and "LatAsian" menu. Open for less than a year, the Asian fusion concept has already received the Diners' Choice Award from OpenTable. DÔA means "the door" in Japanese, and as soon as we walk through theirs, we're happy we did. The alluring smell of ingredients coming together in perfect harmony welcome us as we walk passed the open kitchen —where a team of chefs helmed by Executive Chef Carlos Estarita are chopping, rolling, sautéing away— to a round dining table overlooking Collins Avenue. I scan the cocktail menu, which boasts libations with names like Friends of the Devil, P.H.A.T and Dead on Arrival; beer; and Davidoff cigars. Cuisine is divided into six sections on the menu: For the Table, Steamed, Raw, From the Robata Grill, Wok & Hot Pots, and Vegetables. It's best to share dishes, so that you can enjoy a variety.
