Pubbelly Sushi

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 in South Beach 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 Maine lobster, yuzu, and celery 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, and shishito peppers. Another highlight is the Wagyu beef carpaccio with roasted shiitake mushrooms and a slow-poached egg. Plus, there's a beer belly of brews, many imported from Asia.
