When we hear the name Jose Mendin, we immediately think of Pubbelly. Over the years, the beloved brand has taken over the city’s food scene and it shows no signs of stopping. In fact, Pubbelly just opened two new locations of its popular offshoot Pubbelly Sushi — one in Dadeland and the other in Aventura Mall.
While the Pubbelly brand has been busy expanding its reach, Chef Mendin has been busy at Habitat. The restaurant, which replaces Beachcraft at 1 Hotel South Beach, is an exquisite showcase for Mendin’s creative culinary chops. Unlike its now-shuttered predecessor, you’ll find style AND substance here.
