Nami’s contemporary Japanese concept sparkles with European elements in its approach to the modern dining experience. Discretely positioned in Lake Nona’s art-forward Wave Hotel, the world-class team of chefs has collaborated to bring a one-of-a-kind menu served in an imaginative dining room.
The cocktail bar offers elevated mixology in its precise and beautiful cocktails. As the night evolves the cocktail bar and dining room become one to create a retreat with in-house DJ led vibes and special late night menu offerings.
Approachable and sophisticated, intimate and energetic, Nami takes us where we want to go.
A collective concept created by an exceptional lineup of culinary talent, the team at Nami includes Michelin Star/Culinary Director Freddy Money, who also oversees Atlas and The Garden Room in the St. Regis Atlanta; Senior Culinary Director Eli Kaimeh, formerly of Thomas Keller's Per Se restaurant; Corporate Pastry Chef Stuart Whitfield, formerly of The Glass Knife Orlando; and Vice President of Food and Beverage Michael Ferraro. The team would not be complete without Corporate Beverage Director Jacob Johnson, formerly of The Little Nell in Aspen. Daily operations are led by Chef de Cuisine Jason Beliveau and General Manager Christopher Bugeya.
