New restaurant: Pubbelly to open PB Station in downtown Miami

The Pubbelly Boys are opening a new-American restaurant, PB Station, early next year in downtown Miami, has learned.

Located at 121 SE First St., on the ground floor of the former Miami National Bank building and what will be the boutique Langford Hotel, the newest from the Pubbelly Restaurant Group will draw inspiration from two previous concepts: PB Steak and PB Fish, a dual steakhouse-fish shack that closed in August.  

Look for dishes like the PB Steak tartare sliders and the PB Fish ceviche taquitos on the PB Station menu, in addition to new steak and seafood choices, when the restaurant opens. Executive chef Guillermo Concha will lead the kitchen, working in seasonal plates that he creates in tandem with Pubbelly culinary director Jose Mendin. 

“PB Station will be very different from our other concepts in design and execution,” co-owner Andreas Schreiner says, adding that he’s eager about the restaurant’s historic downtown setting. “They’re keeping the entire outside façade for a very authentic look.”

The new restaurant, set to open the first quarter of the new year, will serve lunch and dinner daily. 

Schreiner, Mendin and Sergio Navarro — the Pubbelly Boys — have opened numerous restaurants in South Florida since 2010, beginning with the original Pubbelly gastropub and followed by Pubbelly Sushi, Barceloneta, Macchialina (no longer owned or operated by Pubbelly), PB Steak and L’echon Brasserie. The group also plans to open restaurants in Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico, in 2015.
