Time Out says

Krüs Kitchen is the airy, light-filled loft suspended above Los Félix, Coconut Grove's Michelin-starred Mexican restaurant. Helmed by the same team—chef Sebastian Vargas and co-founders Josh and Pili Hackler—Krüs began as a strictly takeaway shop during the pandemic, but quickly evolved into so much more. Today, Chef Vargas' globally inspired, locally sourced menus can be enjoyed in-house for both brunch and dinner, in a joyous historic space that doubles as a retail wine market. (We were told the building at one point housed an adult video store; take note of the clearly phallus-shaped glass block window next time you stop by).

For food, Vargas calls on his experience working at Michelin-starred restaurants like Osteria Francescana in Italy and Eleven Madison Park in New York to create bright, flavorful dishes like grilled prawns with saffron sabayon, lime caviar and sumac ($28) and bone marrow pudding
 with gold Medjool dates and caramelized coconut sorbet ($18). 

Josh Hackler takes command of Krüs Wine, a natural, organic and biodynamic program based on seasonality with a focus on the industry's up-and-coming tastemakers and innovators. Krus' wines are also available to shop online, with weekly newsletters, wine events and a subscription wine club fostering Coconut Grove's next-wave community of grape enthusiasts.
