It's hard not to love a martini, especially when it's nine bucks and consists of freshly puréed lychee, Grey Goose, and a twist of watermelon liqueur. Slap on a weekday happy hour (5 to 7 p.m.) and you've got Doraku: a casually stylish Buddha/anime-themed Japanese eatery at the Alton Road entrance of Lincoln Road Mall. The menu deserves as much acclaim as the lovely libations. Food prices are a bit lower than those at most SoBe sushi bars. Dishes are generally more creative and tastier. Especially recommended is ahi poke, with ahi tuna, red onions, and sea kelp drenched in a beautifully balanced sauce; decadent steamed miso mussels; and lobster tempura, lightly battered and near-greaselessly fried. There's also an unusually large selection of vegetarian items plus an extensive list of boutique sakes.
