Sharaku gets deserved praise but is no more
Cafe Sharaku was one of the true finds of the Ft. Lauderdale dining scene. Wonderful, tiny, chef run, 18 seat place with truly inventive fusion cuisine--Asian chef, French trained. Bittersweet to learn that Zagat 2013 posts its highest food score (28) for Sharaku and one other restaurant now that the chef, as the eldest son, has closed the place to return to San Francisco to care for his aging parents. This place will truly be missed by its loyal clientele of which I was definitely one. Sorry, too, for those who read the Zagat review and call hoping to enjoy this wonderful place, only to learn that it is no more. Moral of the story, if you know of a tiny, struggling place with wonderful food, go as often as you can. You never know how long it will last.
