Pan-Asian Tanuki Set to Open in May

South Beach will be the newest home for Pan-Asian restaurant Tanuki as it makes it’s U.S debut this spring.

The newly developed and re-designed Alton Road will house the internationally known eatery on the corner of Alton and 11th Street and will be the first restaurant from the Bulldozer Group, known for its high-end brand management and investments throughout the world.


Designed by highly acclaimed Russian hospitality designer, Andrey Zigankov from Studio Nograph, who is responsible for many of Moscow’s most famous restaurants and hotels and interpreted locally by Charles Benson Architecture. The concept was inspired by the mythical, lovable Japanese creature with the same name. The Vibrant, yet relaxed vibe and extensive Pan-Asian menu will further revitalize the West Side of Miami Beach as a go-to dining for locals and tourists alike.  

Featuring 100 indoor and outdoor seats within a 3,500-square-foot space, Tanuki is surrounded by lush greenery and, in true Tanuki fashion, welcomes guests with a towering statue of the mythical creature in the center of the dining room, which will create a unique atmosphere for any kind of event. Upon entering, guests will be surrounded by Asian-inspired art and digital imagery reminiscent of Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya Crossing District displaying live ticker from the world’s stock exchanges for those conducting business meetings.  All of this is combined with a traditional Japanese style and a hint of industrialism with its reclaimed barn-wood walls, steel beams and exposed lofty original 1940’s Miami-Dade Pine ceiling. The outdoor terrace will serve as the perfect setting for locals looking for a pet-friendly dining experience.

The Tanuki menu will feature more than 150 items, including Sushi, Sashimi, creative Rolls and Dim Sum; Signature entrees will feature the Tanuki take on Peking duck, chicken, seafood, beef, veggies and noodles; snacks for sharing; soups and salads; and desserts. Tanuki will also offer healthy options for those looking to enjoy a vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, or a pre-fixe calorie controlled meal.  Menu items coming in generous portions will range from $12 – $35 per dish. The bar will have hand-crafted cocktails ranging from $12-$15 in price, an extensive sake selection and wine list along with a traditional Japanese tea service and fresh-pressed juices.

*Tanuki South Beach is located at 1080 Alton Road, one block north of Whole Foods. Tanuki will be open for lunch, dinner and late night seven days a week, from 11am to 2am. With the complete menu available for delivery and take-out nightly until 2am.  Valet parking will be available, as well as dedicated self-parking spaces for Tanuki customers in its rear parking lot.  For more information and follow them: Facebook
