Kush voted Miami’s Best Burger 2014

“Johnny Utah. It’s the name of Keanu Reeves’ character in the ’90s cult surfer-gone-bank-robber classic Point Break. It’s also the name of the new cult classic on which you’re about to feast. Like the perfect wave, the perfect burger is an elusive thing. Though there are many out there, few are truly memorable. Kush’s Johnny Utah ($13) is one to remember. The small Wynwood restaurant starts with beef from Florida’s Cowart Ranch that’s ground in-house daily. The patty is carefully cooked to order and then placed on a bun before being topped with cheddar, tomato, lettuce, diced onions, and pastrami. Yes, pastrami. Because the only thing that’s better than a big hunk of meat is a big hunk of meat crowned with spicy pastrami.”
