Overview

Since 2011, Makoto in Bal Harbour sizzles with signature Japanese dishes like kobe beef fried rice with foie gras or spicy tuna in crispy rice squares. Shipments of fish arrive from Japan three times a week, served alongside local seafood. This romantic space from Stephen Starr is spare and candlelit, letting the food take center stage.
