Miami’s culinary scene has never lacked for Thai, sushi or Chinese, but these five new restaurants take Asian cuisine to new and exciting places. 
1. Dragon Ball
Komodo is Brickell’s newest hotspot and that’s not just because nightclub impresario David Grutman rules the night here. The 17,000-square-foot eatery oozes an enchanting ambiance, with both indoor and outdoor seating (including five private floating nests) and a menu that offers a modern take on Southeast Asian cuisine. MUST TRY The tuna porterhouse ($74) is sliced to perfection and served with Szechuan peppercorn, apple chilie ponzu and a seaweed salad. 801 Brickell Ave., Miami, 305.534.2211


2. Round Two
Formerly of Zuma, chef Michael Lewis and GM Steven Haigh have teamed up again to open their very own Asian restaurant, KYU, a Wynwood eatery where the grill of the open kitchen stands out as the heart of the space. As for the menu? Diners can expect dishes such as Thai fried rice, crispy baby back ribs and tuna tataki. MUST TRY The pork shitake gyoza ($10) is smothered in a smoked truffle ponzu sauce that makes taste buds sing. 251 NW 25th St., Miami, 786.577.0150


3. Home Run
Residing in the Faena Hotel Miami Beach, Pao by Paul Qui offers a rather wide range of dishes influenced by Filipino, Spanish, Japanese and French flavors. From the intricate plating to the gold-leaf unicorn sculpture by Damien Hirst in the middle of the restaurant, this place was created to dazzle both the palate and all other senses. MUST TRY A true standout, the short-rib rice ($32) is made with Koshihikari rice, smoked short rib, wild mushrooms, seasonal vegetables, aioli and mustard greens. 3201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786.655.5630


4. Conscious Cuisine
Limited time alert! Open until April 30, Prey has taken over the rooftop of the 1 Hotel South Beach and chef Bun Lai is having a ball introducing Miami to his brand of sustainable seafood and non-native species sushi, as well as dishes that make use of ingredients like antelope, crickets and more. MUST TRY The Roll of Milk and Honey ($18) is true to its name with eggplant, okra, organic goat cheese, fig, avocado, pickled radish, chives and Ethiopian berbere. Admit it: You’re intrigued! 2341 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.604.1000
