A melding of four words, Tsukuro translates to the phrase “where the moon arrives over the water;” a playful nod to the oceanfront setting and synergized rhythm of the menu, design and service style, aimed to appeal to South Florida locals and visitors from around the globe.
Featuring seasonal ocean treasures at the extensive raw bar and a variety of fresh sushi, sashimi and rolls, the menu is complemented by small and large plates for sharing, ranging from traditional favorites like Korean-Style Ribs to Chinese-style Roasted Duck to playful takes on classics with Slow-Braised Oxtail Spring Rolls to Thai-style Whole Fish, to deliver a myriad of tastes. An ample selection of wine, sake, tea, beer and signature cocktails brings harmonious balance to the umami (savory) culinary offerings.
With a firm belief that the first taste is with the eyes, the stunning, 225-seat, 8,000-square foot eatery delivers beautifully; drawing one in with its impressive two-story glass-ensconced structure and contrasting black and gray palette with bursts of vibrant orange and teal. A central statement to the restaurant’s contemporary design is the raw bar display and communal sushi counter encircled by a color-changing LED lighting structure, where diners can watch the action up close and personal from expertly trained sushi chefs. An assortment of seating options, each elevated in a subtle stacked position, allows nearly every seat from the sidewalk tables to the raised patio, multi-level bar, and main dining room, as well as the glass-enclosed private dining room, a vantage point of the activity along Fort Lauderdale Beach’s bustling boulevard.
