Fodor's Expert Review Makoto

$$$$ Bal Harbour Japanese Fodor's Choice

Stephen Starr's Japanese headliner, executed by celebrity-chef Makoto Okuwa, is one of the most popular restaurants in all of South Florida (and in this swanky shopping center, too). There are two menus: one is devoted solely to sushi, sashimi, and maki, the other to Japanese cold and hot dishes. Look for tempuras, meats, and vegetables grilled over Japanese charcoal (robata), rice and noodle dishes, and steaks and fish inspired by the Land of the Rising Sun. The ambience, service, and food all impress; and given its location in haute-couture central, the patrons definitely dress to impress.
