More than a single restaurant, PubBelly is a Latin-Asian flavor of love spilling over several once-quiet blocks on the Intracoastal Waterway. Hit the original for the likes of pastrami dumplings or octopus and chorizo a la plancha and a glass of Basque Txako. Try PubBelly Sushi next door for cold almond soup, oysters and pata negra ham, PB Steak for red meat with miso jus and foie gras mousse, and good neighbors Barceloneta for rice and rabbit sausage.
