Flavorful fusion makes the culinary world go ‘round, and when it comes to East meets West elevation, no one is bringing the heat quite like Kyu.
The restaurant brand was founded in Miami in 2016, and it immediately drew a crowd with its sophisticated blend of Asian ingredients and North American plates. Kyu was a finalist for the James Beard award's Best New Restaurant in 2017, and Time even called it the "Best Restaurant in Florida."
Kyu has since opened sister locations in New York City and Mexico, and while all three eateries are worth a stop whenever you’re in the area, you don’t have to wait to bring some of this award-winning flavor into your life.

Below, we share a slightly-simplified recipe for Kyu’s popular brisket sandwich with kimchi slaw, courtesy of executive chef Chris Arellanes.
The first step is to pick up a 1-pound, pre-cooked brisket from your local Whole Foods or Katz Deli (these two spots are chef Arellanes approved), as well as a bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce. From there, it’s time to mix your own kimchi slaw, prep a bit of jalapeno mayo, then put it all together!
