This week Archive Diver brings you the ads for three South Beach restaurants as they ran in July 1988. Does anybody remember a joint called The Tropics International in the Edison Hotel at 10th and Ocean? It's now Mango's Tropical Cafe
. What about a French place called Heritage Cafe in the Tyler Hotel
on 21st street? There doesn't seem to be any restaurant there now, just some hotel apartments in a 1940 Deco building. How about Scratch at 427 Jefferson? It's now Tazin
, an "upscale, authentic Moroccan restaurant." Anybody's thoughts and or memories about the old or new inhabitants are appreciated.
