Zuma's legendary bottomless brunch is coming to Fort Lauderdale.
The upscale Japanese robatayaki Etaru, which is owned by Zuma's Rainer Becker and Arjun Waney, will launch a weekly rosé brunch on Las Olas this Sunday, August 19.
Priced at $55 per person, Etaru's brunch, which has been well received at its sister restaurant in Hallandale Beach, includes a generous raw bar spread and a selection of robata dishes, followed by a choice of a main course, a colorful dessert platter for the table, and bottomless pours of Whispering Angel. For an additional $20, upgrade to Louis Roederer NV champagne.
Food highlights include an assortment of sashimi and hand-rolled maki; spinach and grilled greens salad with chili and lime; and white miso soup with scallions.
In addition to selecting items from the buffet, customers can choose a main course, which is made-to-order and served tableside. Options include grilled skirt steak with wasabi chimichurri; salmon teriyaki with sansho salt and garlic; spicy tobanjan-glazed pork ribs; and prawns with sweet potato and asparagus tempura.
For an added $15, opt for lamb cutlets showered in Korean spices, black cod with yuzu miso, or a prime beef filet in a wasabi ponzu sauce. Japanese Wagyu beef is available for an extra $30.
Dessert platters vary week-to-week but tend to include a mixture of fresh fruits, sorbets, and house-made pastries.
Etaru Las Olas. 500 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-477-8069; etarurestaurant.us. Brunch Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
