Tokyo Blue Brings Asian Fusion and Midnight Sushi to Downtown

There's a new kid on the downtown block, and he's Nobu veteran Mai Ponrathorn. Fort Lauderdale hot spot Tokyo Blue has decided to take its blue-hued lounge, signature ice glass bar, and larger-than-life menu to the Magic City.

The easy-to-find, 3-week-old restaurant sits between Ten Fruits and Juan Hoyos' growing Peruvian empire (Pollos y Jarras and CVI.CHE 105). Simply look for a color-changing façade with signage that looks straight out of the streets of Tokyo.
