Small Plates, Miami Spice, and Let's Switch Fin With Dragon
*Ever since small plates came into vogue, it seems as though my hands have gotten bigger.
*The teaming of Chodorow and Eismann, and their apparent willingness to shake things up and move properties around, presents all sorts of intriguing possibilities. We already know that, come this fall, a second Q American Barbeque will open where El Scorpion Mexican Kitchen used to be, and that El Scorpion will move into Pacific Time's old spot. Now how about switching Fin, which opened last night in the Design Disrict, with Dragon in SoBe (SB lacks fresh seafood restaurants more than sushi). Then bring back Pacific Time (we mean once it's gone) into the China Grill locale, and move China Grill to... CocoWalk?
*There's a new SoBe Scoops ice-cream shop in the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Short Order will check it out later this week and let you know what we think.
