Included In

Makoto is an upscale Japanese restaurant inside the land of very thick credit cards known as Bal Harbour Shops. The space underwent a big renovation in March 2022, and it really breathed new life into the restaurant. Now, it's got a colorful dining room that feels like eating inside a perfectly ripe peach as well as some lovely patio seating and a cute outdoor bamboo bar. It's the kind of restaurant great for a luxurious lunch after an afternoon of buying irresponsibly expensive clothes, or any occasion when you want tasty raw fish and a cocktail in a space that feels fancy, but not needlessly ostentatious. The sushi here is good, but the best dishes we've tried have been from other parts of the menu, like the $70 koji-aged New York strip or the delicate umami kanpachi.
