Asiatiko is a new restaurant from the owners of South Florida establishments Fresko, Rustiko, and Kosh. The newest venue is a robata-style Japanese steakhouse that focuses on dishes slow-grilled over hot charcoal. The Aventura eatery has an extensive sushi menu made up of unique and creative rolls, from the nigueiri nikkei (white fish, lemon soy, aji, amarillo sauce, crispy quinoa, and micro cilantro) to the citrus campachi (orange pepper sauce, lime, and caviar, torched tableside). Also on the menu are a variety of Asian-inspired entrées and starters. If you like to imbibe, a creative cocktail menu takes guests on a journey across Asia, with each selection featuring a story and ingredients inspired by a different country. Open Sunday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
This is the hottest new restaurant to hit South Florida this year and it's been a while since a reservation has been this hot and hard to get.
