The Ten Best Restaurants in Wynwood
There's no denying it: Wynwood is becoming a food mecca.

Peruvian cuisine goes global at GK Bistronomie (218 NE 25 St.). The restaurant, whose name is a combination of the words "bistro" and "gastronomy," features an exhibition-style kitchen, an indoor-outdoor bar serving pisco infusions, and an outdoor courtyard.

Peru's staple, ceviche, is given a new lease on life with diverse offerings ranging from traditional Peruvian fish ($17) to a mushroom and yuzu ($14) and tuna and foie gras ($25).

But there's more to Kush than brew and buns, such as Florida alligator bites, Bahamian conch salad with conch caught 58 miles offshore, and Proper Sausages pork links with spicy slaw, sliced pickles, and house-made purple mustard. As for the burgers, do yourself a favor and order the frita, which presses guava jelly, melted Grueyère, potato sticks, Miami Smokers bacon, and Lokal sauce into perfection. Kush is the coolest kid on the block.Next Page
