Publisher’s Pick: Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market

By Becky Randel, South Florida Luxury Guide

One restaurant leading the charge is Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market, a Gainesville favorite from owner Hirumi P. Leung, a first generation Japanese-Chinese immigrant. In addition to the on-site artisanal fish (which also sells adorable Japanese candies, treats and sodas), standouts include the “Neck-to-Tail” tasting menu, which allows diners to select pieces of chicken paired with various sauce, and sushi presentations like he Classic roll, served with Tune and yellowtail wrapped with whitefish, scallion and eel sauce.
