Miami chiropractor Bryan Abasolo may have moved to Dallas to be with his fiancée, Rachel Lindsay, after winning a recent season of ABC’s The Bachelorette. But this 305 boy has a slew of places he makes sure to visit when he’s back home – especially when it comes to restaurants. He shared his top hometown picks exclusively with INDULGE:
For a Date Night with Rachel
“I like the upscale, trendy vibe at KYU Miami. The king crab stone pot is amazing, as is the crispy, spicy hamachi tartare. It’s a good place for a date night for me and Rachel.”
251 Northwest 25th Street, Miami; 786-577-0150; kyumiami.com.
For Cocktails with a Kick
“Naiyara has amazing drinks. One of them that I really liked was the Khing Manaw. It’s a little bit spicy, but it’s smooth.”
1854 Bay Road, Miami Beach; 786-275-6005; naiyara.com.
For Sushi Lovers
“I’m most definitely a sushi lover. Pubbelly Sushi is more of a low-key spot, and I pick the yellowtail roll, the butter-crab roll, and crispy spicy tuna. It’s usually busy; one of the best sushi spots in Miami, for sure.”
1424 20th Street, Miami Beach, 305-531-9282; pubbellysushi.us.
For Brunch with a View
“I love the brunch at Zuma, right on the water, so I can sit inside or outside on one of those perfect Miami days. The sushi is great there, and it comes with a rice pot that is to die for.”
270 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami; 305-577-0277; zumarestaurant.com.
For a Party on the River
“The Wharf has a very cool vibe with food trucks, and it has Garcia’s Seafood, so I love that.”
114 Southwest North River Drive, Miami; 305-906-4000; wharfmiami.com.
For a Rooftop Drink
“Sugar, the rooftop bar at East, Miami, has a beautiful view of downtown and Brickell. The last time I went was with a group of guys from the show. We had a great time.”
788 Brickell Plaza, Miami; 786-805-4655; east-miami.com.
For a Breakfast Tradition
“An old favorite for me in the Grove is GreenStreet Café. The French toast and pancakes are the best. Obviously it’s a Miami staple. I’ve been going there since high school.”
3468 Main Highway, Coconut Grove, 305-444-0244; greenstreetcafe.net.
