Looking for an unreal dining experience? KYU is the answer. Tucked in Wynwood away from Main Street Second Ave is KYU. There's a reason this restaurant is packed ALL THE TIME, their eclectic Asian fusion menu is out of this world. From the roasted cauliflower, grilled jumbo tiger prawns, beef tartare, to their infamous fried chicken and coconut cake, you can not go wrong. KYU packs a magical combination of ambiance, food, and culture. Also did I mention their happy hour deals are an absolute steal. $4 beers, $6 glasses of wine, $7 specialty cocktails, $5 bites (soft shell crab and crispy pork belly steamed buns, Korean fried chicken and Thai style crispy pork), Monday through Friday from 4:30pm-6:30 pm
Service, the location, decoration and food are all an 10/10 at KYU.
FYI: Make a reservation, or you aren't getting in, even in the slow season.

Judging by the consistent crowd from weeknights to weekends at this Midtown Miami restaurant, you know this place must be good. Sugarcane's menu is tapas style but not stingy portions; light but filling and well put together! Their menu consists of everything from pan seared scallops, shishito peppers, wagyu sliders, habanero salmon rolls, flank stank, foie grass fried rice and cast iron bone-in ribeye.
For the quality of food this place is affordable for anyone. The service is great, the food is great, the location is great, the ambiance is great. You and your friends won't be able to shut up about it.

This place belongs on the list of Miami's finest gourmand places. Naiyara is one of those restaurants that really live up to their reputation and meet all expectations..The restaurant is beautiful and simple in decor, with an edge of grunge that drips trendy vibes. All food and drink that comes out of their kitchen taste even better than it looks. So you can imagine.
The white truffle fish and green curry sea bass are a must try, not to mention the toro tartare- consistently regarded as one of the top 50 dishes in America. Cocktails are always all delicious and unique, all reflective of the tastes in the Thai dishes.
