Jose Mendin, Sergio Navarro, and Andreas Schreiner were far from the first to flirt with the small-plate trend, but their presentation of Asian-inspired snacks at Pubbelly proved so popular they've since opened Pubbelly Sushi next door. The formula is pretty much the same: tasty, creative food at a good value in a welcoming pub setting. But as the restaurant moniker indicates, this time the menu is baited with raw fish, as well as cooked seafood. A sushi roll of barbecued pork belly and fried clams with kimchi coleslaw thrills; a soft-shell crab BLT is also bright and delightful. Many of the nonsushi snacks come from a robata grill, including pork belly, short ribs, pinchos de pollo, shishito peppers, and a skewer of meaty, delectable Amazon paiche fish brightened by lemon-miso glaze. Other highlights: smoked salmon rillettes and Wagyu beef carpaccio with roasted shiitake mushrooms and a slow-poached egg. Plus there's a beer belly of brews, many imported from Asia.
