The Ten Best Restaurants in Wynwood
Former Zuma chef Michael Lewis and former Zuma general manager Steven Haigh are the brains behind Kyu, a new Asian-inspired restaurant. Located at 251 NW 25th St., Kyu (pronounced like the letter q), uses a wood-fired grill as its focal point, where diners can watch their food being cooked via yakinku, the Japanese barbecue grilling method. The menu, designed for sharing, is broken into the categories “Fresh and Bright,” which are vegetable plates; “Chilled and Refreshing,” mostly seafoods; and “Wood Fired and Smoked,” which includes many of the eatery’s meats. For the best bang for your buck, order the beef short ribs ($28), a generous portion served with lettuce so you can make your own wraps.
