Yeah, that’s probably a bad idea.
So take your time instead at Kuro, a well-appointed shrine to Japanese cuisine and all the sake your night can handle, taking reservations now for a March 28 opening at the Hard Rock. (See the slideshow.)
A lot happening here, so let’s tackle the good stuff.
The chef knows his way around a piece of raw fish.
Helps that he’s spent some time in several Nobu and Morimoto kitchens. In fact, think of the omakase here as a no-fail trust fall... with sashimi.
It’s loosely themed around the ocean.
With chandeliers that look like dangling seaweed, seashell-encrusted walls, coral hanging overhead and driftwood in the ceiling. There’s also a massive piece of cypress wood unearthed from a Louisiana bayou that’ll seat you and 11 of your most trusted sashimi advisers.
There are exactly five cocktails.
One for each taste: bitter, sweet, sour, salty and umami. But again, 30 different kinds of sake. Better odds there.
You can eat on water.
They’ve got two eight-tops out on the patio with a fountain continuously pumping water underneath you.
No sashimi was harmed in the making of your table.
