Andreas Schreiner, Jose Mendin and Sergio Navarro—the trio behind Pubbelly—have got quite a growing business on their hands. In addition to this original outpost, the city’s first Asian-inspired gastropub, they’ve grown their family of restaurants to include Pubbelly Sushi right next door, which—yep, you guessed it—is more than just Asian-inspired. Tapas-focused Barceloneta is part of the family too. Though none would have been possible were it not for Pubbelly Noodle Bar busting open the doors on traditional Latin fare and introducing Asian flavors to classics such as mofongo, and putting a Miami spin on bao and ramen, among other dishes, with ingredients like lechón.
Time Out tip: Save room for dessert. The Pubbelly Group’s pastry chef extraordinaire Maria Orantes doles out incredible creations, from doughnuts and cookies to our personal favorite, the coco loco—a refreshing ice cream dessert served inside a hollowed coconut.
