By Dana Niland
The Casa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic has announced its partnership with the Miami-based Pubbelly Restaurant Group, which will open its Asian-inspired Pubbelly Sushi restaurant at the luxury destination later this year.
The restaurant will be located in the resort’s Marina, and will feature an eclectic menu that treats guests to an edible tour of Asia, with culinary offerings created by Pubbelly Restaurant Group Director and Founding Partner, Jose Mendin, and Sushi Partner, Yuki Ieto.
“We’re excited to partner with The Pubbelly Restaurant Group,” said Charles Keusters, Director of Food & Beverage at Casa de Campo. “Their creativity and amazing flavor combinations will make a great addition to the culinary offerings at Casa de Campo and ultimately, allow us to further enhance our guest experience.”
The restaurant will feature Japanese anime-style murals and modern-Asian twists designs from the originally Pubbelly Sushi in Miami, and will draw from locally-sourced seafood whenever possible, according to the company.
“Pubbelly Sushi at Casa de Campo is a reflection of the shared vision of the brand owners and the executives of the resort. It’s fresh and relaxed design brings together Miami’s chic and trendy ambiance with the charming, tropical and marine atmosphere La Marina at Casa de Campo,” said Rafa Selman of Selman & Asociados Arquitectura.
Founding Partner and Managing Director of the Pubbelly Restaurant Group Andreas Schreiner describes Pubbelly Sushi as “the sushi of the future – the neighborhood restaurant that offers open-minded and unexpected sushi in a relaxed, fun environment that appeals to an ever exploring generation.”
