Two child­hood friends from Mi­ami have opened a bar and global small plates eatery in Wyn­wood that man­ages to be trendy and warm at the same time.

By­b­los — 1545 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-508-5041. This is Mid­dle East­ern like you’ve never seen, with in­tri­cate small plates that are both tra­di­tional and ex­per­i­men­tal. Lamb ribs, duck kibbeh and yo­gurt baked fluke are among the high­lights served in an ec­cen­tri­cally dec­o­rated din­ing room that’s 1970s chic. Din­ner. Re­viewed11-20-15.

A nearper­fect restau­rant in vi­brant, artsy Wyn­wood, with pris­tine food and pol­ished ser­vice with­out fuss or for­mal­ity in a re­laxed, oaks­cented set­ting. Chef Michael Lewis, a well-trav­eled dis­ci­ple of Jean-Ge­orges Von­gerichten, calls the cui­sine “wood-fired and Asian-in­spired,” but you can sim­ply call it de­li­cious. Moder­a­te­ex­pen­sive.

While the food trucks that be­gat this stand­alone restau­rant are still serv­ing sig­na­ture grilled cheese sand­wiches, here you can or­der them and sit in the out­door gar­den.
