Miami’s latest opening has the foodie crowd on the edge of their industrial metal seats with Chef Bee’s elevated Thai street fare and exotic flavor profiles fit for an episode of Parts Unknown. NaiYaRa’s menu is largely inspired by Bee’s grandmother, highlighting in particular the traditional Northern Thai specialties she once sold in her village. Savory favorites range from Bee’s creamy ramen with prawns, chicken dumplings, crispy bok choy, massaman curry, peppercorn duck, and many more, along with a raw bar selection and sushi selects from his wildly successful Oishi Thai. Save room for a craft cocktail by bartender Anthony “Tibor” Vecsesi -- opt for the Killer Bee, made with Beefeater Gin, Kelvin lemon, thai chili, lemongrass, and ginger. Contact your Attaché for reservations and more menu picks.
