Cobaya Le Zoo Makoto

Cobaya Experiment #75 was a collaboration from two spots that I highly enjoy visiting, Le Zoo and Makoto which are both owned by restaurateur Stephen Starr and located at the luxurious Bal Harbour Shops.

The guinea pigs were seated at one long table almost connecting the two restaurants inside the mall and directly over their koi pond. Chef Julian Baker from Le Zoo and Chef Anthony Micari prepared a menu that highlighted Le Zoo's French fare and Makoto's Japanese side.

The flavor combinations worked well together and their execution was spot on. The cocktail and wine parings were great too. Stephen Starr's Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Magoon, ended the evening with a delicious dessert.

Big thanks to Julian for making sure this dinner went down and to the entire team at Le Zoo and Makoto for a fun night in a great setting and most importantly great food.

And thanks to the Guinea Pig Nation for your continued interest and support. Stay tuned for some great upcoming
