A love for Asian cuisine and the restaurant biz runs deep in the Aoki family: dad Rocky first founded Benihana restaurants and then son Kevin launched Doraku. The latter is a trendy Japanese gastropub that's become equally popular for its cocktails at happy hour as it has for its creative sushi rolls and traditional Japanese dishes at dinnertime. In addition to its Brickell location, Doraku has outposts in Miami Beach, Atlanta and Hawaii.
