Gekko Restaurant, by David Grutman and Bad Bunny, opens in Miami

This weekend belongs to Bad Bunny. The Grammy-winning musician is not only headlining two shows at Hard Rock Stadium, but he’s also opening a Japanese-inspired steakhouse with David Grutman this Friday.

The two unlikely partners join forces to bring us Gekkō, an upscale restaurant and lounge in the heart of Brickell. The menu is meat-centric, with thin cuts of Wagyu beef, a very large Tomahawk, filet mignon from an olive-fed cow raised in Kagawa, and strip of snow beef imported from Hokkaido, among other steaks. . It may be more about where your meat comes from than you care to know, but that’s exactly the kind of attention to detail that Gekkō promises its diners.

There’s also a whole section dedicated to seafood and other Japanese classics, including milk bread, Kumamoto oysters, lobster balls and an assortment of sushi, sashimi and nigiri, like the 24k Otoro, a very Groot Hospitality.

We’re guessing Bad Bunny, who says “sitting down with friends to enjoy a good meal is one of the times he enjoys the most,” will likely be around this weekend after one of his shows. See for yourself when Gekkō, located at 8 SE 8th Street, opens on Friday, August 12.
