Buya Izakaya + Yakitori Debuts in Wynwood

Buya Izakaya + Yakitori, a Japanese soul food eatery and bar, is bringing an izakaya to the heart of Wynwood. The concept behind Buya, which means “small fire”, was born in St. Petersburg, FL in 2016, where it received overwhelming praise since its inception and inspired its expansion overseas to Berlin and Potsdam, Germany.

Located on NW 24th Street, already a dining destination in Wynwood with an eclectic blend of gastronomies and nightlife, Buya takes guests on a multi-sensory journey that provides a new perspective on Japanese pub food.

Inspired by indigenous ingredients and techniques from Japan, the izakaya menu will feature plates including yakitori and wagyu kushiyaki which are grilled over binchotan charcoal, a duck dumpling hotpot and Tokyo street corn (dishes range from $8 to $15).

Buya’s intricate cocktail program features craft cocktails that are masterfully created with housemade ingredients such as specialty sodas for highballs. Inspired by Tokyo’s Golden Gai, a collection of over 200 misfit micro-bars occupying the alleyways in a darkened corner of Shinjuku, is Buya’s cocktail den.

Buya Izakaya + Yakitori is located at 250 NW 24th Street, Miami, FL 33127 and will be open for lunch and dinner from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and late night on the weekends.
