Cafe Sharaku - CLOSED
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33306
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
This boutique, six-table restaurant located off of Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale takes French technique and merges it with the ingredients of Japanese chef/owner Iwoa Kaita's homeland. The result is as enticing as a well-written line of poetry. A specials board denotes what's fresh daily and includes offerings like vibrant Florida stone crab baked with wasabi/garlic aioli and slender enoki mushrooms and New England clams sautéed gently with spinach, butter, and yuzu, a tart variety of Japanese lemon. Not everything works perfectly, as with the cold dishes like chilled deep-fried salmon with sour lemon sauce. But thanks to a competent, friendly staff and a broad menu, Café Sharaku is a charming and pleasant experience.
