Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi Presents Naked Sushi 

The most audacious restaurant in South Beach, Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, is taking Miami Spice to the next level with a daring and risqué, first-of-its-kind offer for food enthusiasts and sushi-lovers. During Miami Spice months of August and September, Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi will be offering Naked Sushi – a concept unique to the South Beach Asian hotspot, and a term used to describe the restaurant’s offer of an attractive male or female that can be ordered to arrive at the table, stripped of any clothing and tastefully, but scantily dressed, horizontally, in an artistic platter of sushi and sashimi for up to 10 people.  Each mouthwatering “body” of strategically arranged fish, selected from the Kung Fu sushi menu, will entice even the most famished group of friends, and for an all-inclusive cost of $500 per human platter, it may even come with polite conversation during the meal. Reservations for Naked Sushi at Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi can be made by calling 305.600.9572 or General restaurant reservations can be made by calling 305.534.7905 or by visiting  Walk-ins are also welcome.
