Makoto Okuwa

Makoto, Bal Harbour, FL

Japanese-born Makoto Okuwa began an apprenticeship with a sushi master at the age of 15, a training that led to his later appointment as head sushi chef at Morimoto New York and Morimoto Philadelphia. Now at the helm of his namesake restaurant, Okuwa serves playful but exquisitely crafted cuisine that pays tribute to Japanese tradition.
