What does it take to get a Miamian to abandon the 305 a meal? A spectacular beach view, a solid wine list and easy parking. Just at the Broward and Miami-Dade county lines, Hallandale’s Etaru ticks off all three. This marks the first U.S. location of the contemporary Japanese restaurant from Zuma cofounder Rainer Becker, who’s hired chef Sergio Rivera, formerly of Nobu and Makoto, to helm the menu, in which sushi plays but a minor role. The star of the whole operation is a prominent robata grill, where meats, fish and vegetables are slow grilled over hot charcoal. One of the better brunch deals in South Florida, Etaru offers two prix-fixe options with access to a full sushi buffet (which includes crispy rice!), choice of entrée, an elaborate assortment of desserts and unlimited rosé or Champagne.
