Listen, you’re going to have to drive to Doral pretty soon.

We wouldn’t normally ask such things of you.

But... trust us.

Here, maybe this’ll help.

What you’ve just witnessed in slideshow form: Dragonfly Izakaya & Fish Market, a massive Japanese funhouse for group-banter-filled evenings involving oysters, robata-grilled meats and bottles of sake. It opens Saturday in, yes, Doral.

Fine, we’ll go on.

Start planning a little field trip out west with a group.
Looks like your average little mom-and-pop Japanese pub. That happens to be 6,000 square feet of wood, metal and copper fishhook chandeliers. “Average” is entirely subjective here.

Naturally, there’s sushi.
Along with neck-to-tail robata-grilled chicken, oysters and a Japanese seafood pancake stuffed with shrimp, squid and octopus.

Sake and shochu are present and accounted for.
Although no one could blame you for going the Japanese whiskey route. Or for giving their seasonal omakase cocktail menu a test run.

Yes, they’ve got two other spots around the state.
But this is the only one with a traditional fish market modeled after the Tsukiji Market in Japan. They’ll be offering classes on seafood there, but you can also just pick up a bento box or some fresh fish to take home.

Grouper makes a great souvenir.
