At Kyu in Wynwood, a sizable portion of the restaurant's menu is prepared on its wood-fired grill using a combination of Asian and American barbecue techniques. Here, 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 possible wrapping, pickled cucumbers, red onions, and shiso. There are also three miniature beakers containing sweet/sour, spicy/smoky, and light/spicy barbecue sauces. Kyu is precisely what Wynwood has been missing: an Asian-American concept with a thriving bar scene, killer cocktails, and a fun and energetic dining experience. Insider tip: 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.
