Lincoln Restaurant in Miami Adds Sushi Eye

Lincoln Eatery, Miami Beach’s first modern food court, has announced the opening of any sushi. Chef Carlos Zheng’s sister concept, Ai Tallarin, Ai Sushi specializes in authentic Japanese cuisine, featuring signature maki, traditional rolls and high-quality sashimi. The concept is inspired by Chef Zheng’s Asian culinary background and his passion for creating authentic cuisine.

Chef Zing draws inspiration from each culture’s culinary background to create the ultimate sushi fusion concept. Chef Cheng grew up cooking countless regional dishes from all over Asia. He studied under Senior Sushi Chef Noboro Sanada before moving to Miami where he joined the Sushi Samba team at Coral Gables, among other popular South Florida restaurants. Ai Tallarin and now, Ai Sushi, are his latest passion projects. The offerings are inspired by Japanese traditions but influenced by today’s Asian fusion culinary trends.

“Creating concepts like Ai Tallarin and now Ai Sushi has given me the freedom to be creative while also challenging me,” says Chef Carlos Zheng. “The challenge in this industry is what motivates me to find unique ways to mix different cuisines together to create attractive dishes.”
