White-hot Asian eatery from Miami’s premier influencers

Nightlife guru David Grutman is Miami’s most formidable taste-maker and a perfectionist with the Midas touch. So when the powerhouse behind superclubs LIV and Story opens a southeast Asian joint with China Grill, you know it’s going to be the sceniest spot in the city. Komodo is as glossy as it gets: a capacious tropical temple slammed with high rollers. Order the peking duck and a basil watermelon mojito and keep your eyes peeled for Avicii, Calvin Harris and any other A-lister in town – they’ll be smashing lobster dynamite rolls with Grutman in one of five open-air bird’s nest pods (yes, really).
