Welcome to KYU

MODERN, WOOD-FIRED, ASIAN BARBECUE. 

Inspired by the global travels of our team of chefs and the discipline of Japanese wood-fired grilling known as yakiniku, KYU offers a rich exploration of interpretive Asian cooking. From our open kitchens, you will discover a world of expertly grilled umami-rich meats, smoke-roasted short ribs, innovative fish and beguiling vegetable preparations, hamachi Crudo, and pork belly baos, and Thai “stone pot” fried rice, along with fabulous hand-crafted cocktails and stunning signature desserts. With award-winning restaurants in Miami, New York, and Mexico City, KYU’s unique brand is ready to expand to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and London. We welcome you with open arms.

Our Story

Founded by Alan Omsky and Jordan Sayfie in 2016, KYU, located in the eclectic Wynwood district of Miami, became TIME magazine’s “Best Restaurant in Florida” one year after opening, and a semifinalist for “Best New Restaurant ” by the James Beard Foundation. KYU’s unique wood-smoked, wood-grilled Asian concept quickly made KYU one of Miami’s most coveted dining spots while gaining international acclaim. Guests love KYU’s sophisticated, bustling atmosphere tucked behind Wynwood’s famous murals, while dining on pristine ingredients, expertly prepared, with bold, inventive, Asian flavors. Omsky and Sayfie have partnered with the Reuben brothers, real estate developers from England, to expand the brand around the globe.
