Miami’s first Asian-inspired gastropub, Pubbelly is quickly becoming well-known across the country. The brainchild of Andreas Schreiner, Jose Mendin, and Sergio Navarro, this perpetually packed casual spot, located on the west end of Miami Beach, is not only one of the best, most creative restaurants in Miami, it’s also one of the most fun. Pâtés, duck and pork rillettes, terrines, sausages, and pickles are all made in-house, and round out a charmingly creative menu that changes daily, but always includes ramen and udon in ways you’ve never seen them before (like carbonara-inspired), a raw bar, dumplings with fillings like short rib and corn or pastrami and sauerkraut, and a wide selection of small plates for sharing. Check out the fried chicken with mustard miso, pork cheeks with feta gnudi and tzatziki, salt and pepper squid, veal brains “meuniere,” and “chopped” bone marrow with citrus gremolata and bacon marmalade. For the adventurous eater, no visit to Miami is complete without a visit to Pubbelly, or its sister restaurant (one of America's Best Asian Restaurants), Pubbelly Sushi (mmm, Buffalo-style rock shrimp tempura and goma soy paper with snow crab, ponzu, and clarified butter).
