With locations currently open in New York City and Mexico City, Kyu Restaurants is currently at work on a reopening for Kyu Miami, the brand’s original location in Wynwood. Founded in 2016, Kyu offers a menu of Asian-inspired wood-fired barbecue dishes. After sustaining damage due to recent storms, Kyu Miami is currently undergoing major repairs and is working toward a reopening before the end of the year.
“Excitement is building here! We can’t wait to welcome you back in Winter 2023!” says the Kyu Miami website.
The dinner menu currently on offer in the restaurant’s New York location features “Keep It Light” offerings like Tuna Crispy Rice, Shimp Gyoza, and Ssamjang Grilled Octopus with bamboo shoots and watercress. Smoked and Wood-Fired Dishes include Stone Pot Thai Fried Rice, Mongolian Pork Belly with green garlic and bok choy, Duck Breast “Burnt Ends,” and Korean Fried Chicken.
The menu also features brunch offerings like the Duck Scramble with toasted rice and creamy gochujang, the Ssamjang Chicken Sandwich with roasted garlic aioli and Korean chow-chow, Short Rib Hash with sweet potato and charred peppers, and Japanese Skillet Pancakes with matcha cream and grilled maple syrup.
It’s unknown whether there will be significant changes to the Miami location’s menu upon reopening.
In addition to reopening the Miami restaurant, Kyu is also at work on a new location in Las Vegas. You can keep up with the brand’s Miami location by following @kyumiami on Instagram.
