A sizable portion of the menu at Kyu in Wynwood is prepared on the restaurant’s wood-fired grill using a combination of Asian and American barbecue techniques. The meat is simply prepared with Japanese sea salt and black shichimi pepper and then smoked for 12 to 14 hours. It arrives divided into thick slices on a flat wood stump with a bevy of accouterments, such as fresh lettuce for wrapping, pickled cucumbers, red onions, and shiso. There are also three miniature beakers containing sweet/sour, spicy/smoky, and light/spicy barbecue sauces. At the entrance, take a look at the massive abstract mural of a woman’s face. It was created by 2Alas, a local street artist whose work can been throughout Wynwood and even around the world. Kyu worked with 2Alas to create a piece reflecting the neighborhood. You can also find the “Kyu lady” wrapped around the cans that hold the restaurant’s signature drink, the Wynwood Mule. New Normal: Kyu has converted to QR code menus and digital payment; no cash accepted. Bathrooms have been upgraded to touchless. Diners must make reservations and wait in their car for their table to open. No waitlist, no bar seating.
