Stop into one of Miami’s four Pubbelly Sushi locations for a twist on traditional Asian fare. “Our hamachi poblano is one of my favorite sashimi dishes,” says Executive Chef José Mendin, a five-time James Beard Award semifinalist. “It’s simple to make, yet packs a lot of flavor in every bite. The citrus from the yuzu soy, the spice from the roasted poblano and fresh yellowtail bring a perfect balance of flavors.” Locations in Aventura, Brickell, Miami Beach and Downtown Dadeland;
