James Beard nominated for Best New Restaurant 2017, KYU Miami is a favorite hotspot in the heart of the Wynwood Art District – and for good reason. With solid food and killer cocktails, KYU is a favorite for locals and visitors alike.
Now, KYU restaurant partners, Chef Michael Lewis and General Manager Steven Haigh have added new cocktails to pair with with their delish Asian-influenced menu which ranges from chilled crudo to wood-fired Japanese barbeque-style grilled meats – and they are not to be missed.
Asian-Inspired Cocktail Pairings at KYU Miami
Here are a few of KYU Miami’s newest drinks matched up with popular dishes that complement and balance their pairing for ultimate tasting experience:
Tasty and slightly sweet; this elevated take on the Bee’s Knees, mixes Fennel Milk-washed Bombay Dry Gin, Lemon Yuzu, Miso Mirin Honey and Bee Pollen.
Combine with the delish Roasted Cauliflower served over goats cheese and shishito – herb vinaigrette.
Smokey The Pear
Potent and exotic; mixed with Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Lapsang Souchong Tea, Asian Pear, Dry Marsala, Amontillado and Black Cardamom-Tarragon Bitters.
Pairs nicely with savory and earthy Pork and Shitake Gyoza with smoked truffle ponzu sauce.
Rich and savory; stirred with Fried chicken fat-washed Altos Reposado Tequila, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Cilantro-Lime Bitters, with a Shichimi Spice Reduction and Umami Tincture.
Very compatible with KYU’s signature dish, Korean Fried Chicken on top of braised spinach and red chili butter.
Don’t Drink the KYUL-Aid
Floral and pungent; made with Absolut Elyx Vodka, Health-Ade Beet Kombucha, Lime Leaf, Pink Peppercorn and Prosecco.
Teams up well with hearty and shareable Beef Short Ribs marinated in sweet soy and garlic, and served with lettuce leaf wraps, pickles, red onions, and three dipping sauces.
