In February2016, this wood-fired Asian inspired restaurant opened its doors, featuring adiverse menu, professional yet relaxed service and a conscious commitment togreen practices
Wabi-sabi,“the art of finding perfection in something imperfect” was the beautifulJapanese mind-set, that echoes the philosophy that Chef Michael Lewis andGeneral Manager Steven Haigh emulate throughout the heart and soul of KYU. Withits many quirks and imperfections, Wynwood’s rawness, creative energy andeclectic vibe is why the duo chose the neighborhood as home.
A diversemenu, offering a awesome array of flavors inspired by the many adventures andglobal travels of Chef Lewis and the Japanese barbecue grilling practice,Yakinku. KYU offers a balanced collection, from the refreshing and upliftingchilled crudo to the smokiness and flawlessly charred tastes from the woodfired grill.
Kyu is abeliever in green and sustainable methods, the KYU team vows to plant trees,for using their wood fired grill, source much of their food locally andconstantly look for more environmentally friendly hospitality options.
