11 New Green Venues for Meetings and Events
KYU, which focuses on wood-fired Asian fare, opened in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood in February. Helmed by chef Michael Lewis and general manager Steven Haigh, the 4,000-square-foot restaurant commits to numerous eco-friendly practices, such as sourcing local ingredients and growing micro greens in a mini herb garden. To make up for the restaurant’s wood grill, KYU partnered with agroforestry nonprofit Trees for the Future to donate 10,000 trees that were planted in Senegal. The venue also uses an Orca composter to turn food waste into water.
