Miraku’s adept chefs entertain palates with an izakaya-style menu boasting small plates crafted from seasonal recipes that employ seafood imported from Japan. Duos begin their three courses by selecting two starters such as toro kakuni, a braised tuna belly drizzled with sweet soy, or edamame falafel topped with wasabi sour cream. For the main course, chefs choreograph the Bollywood maki roll’s production of spicy tuna, avocado, and curry aioli, and blend spicy salmon, leeks, and mozzarella that’s as melted as a Fiat parked on Mercury to create the Italia roll. Each meal concludes with spice-quenching sweets such as red bean and green tea ice cream or ginger-red-wine-poached pear.
At lunchtime, shoyu ramen bowls hold swim meets for chicken cha-shu, poached egg, and sweet corn with hot noodles. Diners stifle sonar growls from deep in the stomach by biting into a tuna tofu burger with caramelized onions, tomatoes, and pickles, or bowling through plates of 12 sashimi pieces. For the teriyaki bento box, Miraku’s chefs place chicken, salmon, or tofu and mushrooms upon a pedestal of white or brown rice.
