Sure, sushi and sashimi are in no short supply in Broward County, but that's not all you'll find at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's newest restaurant, Kuro. Named simply "Black" in Japanese, Kuro is the resort's 9,500-square-foot showpiece, a custom-designed theater-style dining room set with booths and circular tables each presenting a clear view of the restaurant's impressive open kitchen. Here, the entire operation approaches each meal with so much intensity, you can't help but be swept up in the enthusiasm. The goal: to create an upmarket establishment unlike any other in Broward County — or South Florida, for that matter. Don't expect to find boats of sashimi or sushi rolls with catchy names. Rather, Kuro offers the traditional, multicourse Japanese style of dining known as kaiseki, a series of minimeals that progresses from light, simple fare to heavier, more complex dishes. Start with the salmon karé, seared salmon in a Japanese curry with cauliflower furikake and spuma. Continue with king crab tempura – Alaskan king crab legs with roasted garlic butter powder and crispy Okinawan potatoes.For lunch, try one of three ramen dishes, including the Hiyashi Ramen – chilled ramen noodles seasoned in an exotic goma-dare sauce with king crab, seasoned egg, and summer vegetables. Or end it all with a grouper cartoccio, a Florida-caught fish steamed in a light soy broth with peppery radishes and kimizu sauce.
