Filipino-owned Japanese restaurant Soseki earns its first-ever Michelin star

Filipino chef Michael Collantes helms Soseki Modern Omakase in the state of Florida in the US. Recently, the restaurant just earned its first-ever Michelin star for being an ideal illustration of a contemporary meal expressed by way of an omakase. The restaurant is an omakase and izakaya in one. It is when diners can get a taste of delicate dishes that the chef selects. They usually pair with curated sake and wine. Customers usually receive fifteen bites/courses. It also includes a piece-by-piece nigiri, hand-pressed sushi of an oval-shaped mound of rice topped with raw fish.

Soseki’s menu remains globally inspired and seasonally driven with 10 seatings maximum. Due to the style of dining, there is limited sourcing of local produce and special ingredients sourced globally. They currently are unable to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies at this time. They also make an effort for all guests to have a wonderful dining experience. Of course, if any guest has a specific question in regards to accommodations, they can reach out to Soseki’s email and let them know.
