PB Station Downtown Miami – Pubbelly’s Latest Sensation
By Denise for Hedonist Shedonist
PB Station is in housed in the Beaux-Arts architectural and historical Langford Hotel in downtown Miami’s emerging Arts and Entertainment District, under its glass-enclosed mezzanine level lobby, is the newest jewel in the Pubbelly Restaurant Group’s culinary treasure chest.
The young and creatively-fueled Pubbelly Restaurant Group is led by founding partners Andreas Schreiner (Managing Director), Chef Jose Mendin (Culinary Director), and Sergio Navarro (Chief Designer). The Pubbelly Boys have opened several, highly-regarded gastropubs, including their signature restaurant, Pubbelly Sushi, in Miami’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood as well as Food Republic on the Norwegian Cruise Line’s ship, the Escape.
Executive chef, Chef Guillermo Concha, executes Mendin’s progressive American-inspired concept, while also reflecting his own Argentinean roots into PB Station’s menu, which he continuously reinvigorates with new dishes.
PB Station’s chic retro décor uses elegant large black and white ceramic tiles to create a train station theme, and is labeled with popular city destinations of a bygone railroad era.
On our invited dining visit, we enjoyed several innovative and delicious from PB Station’s First Stops:
BBQ Dates – Fat, sweet and soft Medjool Dates are filled with tender Smoked Brisket, wrapped in thick slab Bacon and barbecued with a BBQ Mustard glaze, and served along crunchy Coleslaw. These luscious, sweet and savory bites paired well with our pre-dinner drinks mentioned later.
Yellowtail Ceviche Taco – a crispy tortilla shell generously filled with Citrus-cured, fresh raw Yellowtail, dressed with Ginger-Soy and Corn-Miso; then topped with ripe Avocado. Each crunchy chomp was a flavor party in our mouths. A Must Order!!
