Miami-Dade native Becky Jaime beams as her gaze sweeps across the packed dining room of Pub 52 Gastro + Kitchen, South Miami’s new high-end gastropub. “Pub 52 is so much more than a restaurant…it’s a destination where local people can enjoy great food, socialize, dance and spend the entire afternoon or evening with family and friends,” explained Becky, the gastropub’s Director of Operations. “We’ve got something for everyone — co-workers coming for happy hour, families with children having dinner and friends out for a night”
Rajiv Pandey, president of the Kanti Group Inc., a local hotel and restaurant company that owns the gastropub and other venues, says South Miami needed a place where neighborhood residents could dine and play in the same place. Pub 52 is the answer. The scratch kitchen, where everything is prepared fresh and by hand, serves up a wide selection of delicious fare ranging from the sig- nature #52 burger to Asian fusion-inspired miso salmon to fall-off-the-bone St. Louis ribs. And Pub 52’s chicken wings are unsurpassed, with more than ten house- made sauces from to choose.
Once your palate has been satisfied, there is plenty of fun to be had at Pub 52. Live bands take the stage on Friday and Saturday nights and Wednes- day night is Ladies’ Night, complemented by a nine-foot screen. The bar is the longest in South Miami and known for its signature cocktails, 30 locally brewed beer taps and the area’s widest se- lection of bourbons. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, 4-7 p.m. Sports fans can watch and follow all the games on more than 30 televi- sions, viewable in every direction. And there is al- ways action around the pool table and dance floor.
Pub 52 is open daily for lunch and dinner and will soon offer brunch on Sundays and seasonal lunch specials. The spacious gastropub can accommo- date social and corporate gatherings as well as cater offsite events.
Pub 52 is located at 5829 SW 73 Street in the heart of South Miami. For more information, visit www.pub52.com or call 786-500-0205.
