This Brickell Center outpost for the popular Pubbelly Boys gastropub empire, has found a way to make just about anything into sushi. This means rolls made with beef tartare, mustard, and truffle poached egg, or filled with crab, mozzarella and serrano peppers -- not your standard sushi fillings. Aside from the rolls, the chefs serve a sinfully flavorful shrimp ceviche taquito, and a tortilla tuna pizza, as well as a selection of ridiculously fresh, traditional sashimi. The sushi joint has charcoal walls, dark-wooded tables and an open kitchen, along with outdoor seating and an excellent happy hour menu, best enjoyed on the terrace. Like the food, the cocktail menu is an odd amalgam of traditional spirits, and things like lychee shrub, charred pineapple, and sparkling sake.
Chef Jose Mendin puts his own spin on a host of brunch standards inside this home-grown sushi favorite. Highlights include Onsen Tamago Shakshuka with soft baked eggs in a tomato-anticucho sauce and Korean Chicken and Waffles with honey chili garlic glaze. And don’t skip the Breakfast Bao Bun, a fist-sized delight stuffed with poached egg, avocado tomatillo salsa, chopped bacon, and chorizo.
You know the Pubbelly crew is doing something right when they can open up a sushi joint and still boast one of the best beef dishes in the entire city. Yeah, the Wagyu Roll might be the tastiest beef tartare you’ve ever had, but if you're going for seafood, the ever-changing roster of rolls makes this a place you'll want to put in your regular rotation. This year, the PB empire expands even further, with new digs at the Shoma Bazaar in Doral, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, and Pembroke Pines on deck.
