This winter, Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Group's new Asian-inspired restaurant, Tsukuro, will make its debut on the busy A1A strip. With its glass facade and colorful mosaic ceiling, the soon-to-be darling of the restaurant group is throwing its hat into the ring to see if it can beat its toughest competition: itself.

What will make Tsukuro stand out from the restaurant group's other properties? A unique design and an executive chef. Both the restaurant's unique, hybrid name, which means "where the moon arrives over the water," and its two-story, open-air design were inspired by nature. The restaurant will be made entirely of glass, seat up to 350 people, and include a private dining room that seats 20.The top of the restaurant, which is located between Spazio and Rock Bar, has been framed out in preparation for its vibrant mosaic glass ceiling.
Tsukuro will be unlike the restaurant group's other restaurants, which, according to the group's marketing director, Arianne Glassman, are not "chef-driven." The group is currently interviewing potential candiates to helm the restaurant and design its Asian-inspired small-plates menu. In addition to serving small plates, the casual-dining restaurant will have three additional bars -- raw, live sushi, and sake. Tsukuro is slated to open December 1.
