South Florida has a variety of restaurants where guests can sample different types of fare, and Japanese is not the exception in this growing multicultural market. Among the best Japanese restaurants is celebrity chef and restaurateur Michael Schulson’s Monkitail, that within its first year of opening in 2017 was awarded Best Hotel Restaurant by USA Today.
Celebrity chef and restaurateur Michael Schulson explains, “I’ve always loved South Florida and have been waiting for the right opportunity. When Brookfield approached me to open a restaurant in The Diplomat Beach Resort, it was really a no-brainer. It is such an iconic hotel, and the partnership has been wonderful. I’m fortunate to be able to work with some of the best local ingredients in the country at the two unique concepts we created – Monkitail and Nokku. Both have been extremely well received by locals and visitors alike – and a few awards never hurt!”
