The cherry blossoms are always in bloom at Paperfish Sushi — and so are the mingled flavors of Japan and Peru.

The new Japanese restaurant, opening this month in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, will serve modern Tokyo-inspired izakaya-style Nikkei cuisine.

In a dining room lined with cherry trees, diners can share plates of Japanese favorites, such as Nikkei tuna, smoked ceviche, tiradito and hamachi crispy rice. There are also signature sushi and hand rolls that blend Japanese and Peruvian influences, such as the San Snow (crab, smoked rocoto, Parmesan and bread crumbs) and the Torch Wagyu (uni and ginger wasabi).

Entrees include pulpo robata (octopus, chimi nipon, olive and mashed edamame) and wagyu ishiaki (tataki grilled wagyu and a signature sauce. There are also vegetarian options as well, and entrees run from $15 to $38.
