Tokyo Blue: The Maki Daddy
A Nobu veteran has hightailed it to the north and opened a neon blue raw fish temple on Ft. Lauderdale beach. I was invited to a food press/blogger dinner a little while ago and tasted half the menu in a feast of Asian-inspired dishes. There were plenty of Nobu homages in the mix - the rock shrimp tempura, jalapeno hamachi - and some Thai staples like coconut curry and pad thai. All of it was tasty, though nothing really blew my mind. Yet it's a fine addition to the dining scene up there.
Next time you’re in Broward and craving classics like Miso Black Cod and Bali Lobster make your way to this clubby spot where the bartenders wear black corsets and a giant aquarium greets you at the front. It doesn't get much classier in Lauderdale.
