Miami’s Pubbelly Station For Great Food in Train Setting

0

We love this foodie pick in downtown Miami called Pubbelly Station, which is attached to the oh so traditional Langford Hotel.  Chef José Mendin brings cultural diversity across their dishes and they’re not just delicious, but beautifully presented as well. 

An original Pubbelly Boys Group concept, the restaurant has a striking traditional train station setting as its backdrop. In addition to the ever so cool ambiance, they have raw oysters on the half shell — how could I say no to that?

Scrumptious dishes include BBQ dates with bacon, smoked brisket and coleslaw (oh so southern), grilled octopus with aji panca pepper, chorizo, sweet potato and cilantro, grilled bone marrow with parsley-shallot salad and country toast (LOVE THIS), and the stone crab linguini, which I didn’t try but it was egging me on, as was the roasted beet salad with walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette horseradish.

Other call outs go to Jumbo Stone Crabs, Yellowtail Taquito with red onion, radish and avocado mousse, and the Hamachi Crudo (my favorite), which they served with gazpacho vinagrette, red pepper panzanella and paprika oil.

Other call outs go to the Wagyu Beef Tartare slider with a parmesan-truffle cream with fries and Onion soup dumplings (shown below), which they top with gruyere cheese and serve with brioche croutons.

And, how about these divine brussels sprouts with salted caramel, smoked house bacon and peanuts? They were to die-for, so much so that I could have eaten this dish alone all night long — oh so yum!!

They offer lovely salads too as well as a delicious Atlantic Cod with caramelized cream, cherry stone clams, bacon (note how much they love bacon here), leaks and red bliss potatoes. Also worth noting is the Dry Aged Pork Chop with candied cabbage, smoked bacon tater tots and a gruyere crust.

My colleague didn’t eat meat but was a fan of shellfish so we opted for the Grilled Head on Shrimp, which they served with bacon sofrito (bacon again), and grilled scallions. It was incredibly tasty and a strong recommend!!

The manager insisted I order the whole Branzino fish and I have to admit, it was pure perfection. Lots of green energy accompanied this dish as well as an ever so sweet baked yellow pepper.

Ready for dessert yet? They had a number of divine options to choose from, including a Red Velvet Souffle, Pannacotta key lime with meringue, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries and a Banana chocolate bread pudding with eggnog ice cream. This not only had me at hello, but I couldn’t put down the spoon. Despite our over the top dinner portions, we polished off all the desserts and even left room for coffee.

Also worth noting for late night dinner drinks is the Pawn Broker, which is located on the top floor of the Langford Hotel. The fare is much more casual and includes things like beef sliders, grilled lamb ribs (the best choice on the menu in my opinion), Quesadillas, smoked fish dip, Korean wings, Broker Belly, olives, Guacamole to name a few.

The real gem here and reason to visit is for the breathtaking views of Miami from the top deck. You can lounge around here and there are heat lamps for when there’s a breeze.

The cocktails were a breath of fresh air and in addition to spirits, they had a lengthy list of Tequila options, from Avion Silver and Reposado to a serious Avion 44 and Don Julio 1942, and everything in between.

 After you’ve polished off a few of those, you’ll be ready for a snooze in one of their comfy beds. Then, be prepared for breakfast in the main dining room the next day.

There are plenty of choices, from freshly made muffins, bagels, croissants, toast and yogurt parfair with fruit, to items off the menu, like omelettes, eggs and waffles.
