Chef Mendín founded Pubbelly Sushi a decade ago in the then up-and-coming neighborhood in Miami Beach, now known as Sunset Harbour. Mendin first founded it with the intention of creating a place where chefs could eat high-quality, affordable dishes in a cool atmosphere. Pubbelly Sushi quickly grew to have a cult-like following. Now known as an eclectic neighborhood gastropub, it brings a hyper-creative fusion of Japanese and Latin inspired dishes by five-time James Beard Award Semi-Finalist for Best Chef Southeast, José Mendín.

More than a decade later, it continues to be embraced by the market, winning the 2020 Miami New Times Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Sushi,” and maintaining a spot on every tourist’s “must” list.
