Happy Monday, Miami. Enjoy what’s new in town, from the openings of Pubbelly Sushi Market in Aventura and Sushi Maki in Coconut Grove to Tuscany Thursdays at Commonwealth, World Malbec Day, and Matador Bar’s Third Thursday Takeover Series.
Pubbelly Sushi Market at Aventura Mall
Instead of offering tables, chairs, and waitstaff, the Pubbelly Boys’ fourth sushi spot is a grab-and-go version of the company’s signature gastropub. The space caters to busy shoppers or those who prefer take-out rather than dine-in. The menu ($2 to $16) offers a selection of salads, sushi rolls, and sashimi, as well as speciality plates such as tuna pizza drizzled with garlic aioli and truffle oil ($16) and shrimp ceviche taquitos stuffed with avocado mousse and red pico de gallo ($12). New to the menu is a selection of poke bowls, including salmon kimchi ($12) and tuna with sesame sweet soy ($8). The small industrial-designed space, located on the first floor near Gucci and Nordstrom, features a narrow bar with a handful of metal stools. Otherwise, the space is largely standing-room-only. Outside the shop is a public seating area.
