Makoto's Soon-To-Disappear Menu: Top Asian Fare Draws Attention From Gossipy Housewives
The restaurant has managed to make a lasting impression on neighborhood foodies. Its serene, candle lit terrace is hard to miss on the upscale mall's cobblestone walkways.
Everything from tuna air bread, frosty Kobe fried rice and short rib robata were served up family style. For $45 per person, (minimum two people) -- this ain't bad in pricey Bal Harbour -- you can relax on the quaint outside couches under a palm tree, while five courses just keep on comin'.
On a recent night, I was seated next to some gossipy housewives, who were complaining about their husbands while throwing back sake. While their banter was entertaining, it was the food that kept our attention.
