Feb. 4—Andean culture is about to meet Latin fusion in Wynwood.
Restaurateur Diego D’Alvia, who owns the Rex- Best Chivito in Town restaurants in Buenos Aires, is opening Wakyu Restaurant & Bar in Miami next week.
The 2,000-square-foot restaurant, which has indoor and outdoor seating, considers its kitchen experimental. Helmed by Milan-born Chef Matteo Gritti, it aspires to what it calls “nomadic-inspired” cuisine.
What does that mean?
It means you can start with light dishes such as the Krunchies Tuber & Beet Hummus. You can hit the raw bar and order hot and cold fresh tapas. Want something cold?

Get the Arancini stuffed with goat cheese and burnt aioli.
Main courses include the Octopus in The Coral Reef with eggplant, beetroot and red coral, Wayku’s nod to Surf
