August 2011 Restaurant Openings & Closings

Chow Down in South Beach. Sweet.
A restaurant is like a lawn chair. It opens and closes, opens and closes, opens and closes until one day, for whatever reason, after closing, it never reopens (serves you right for buying it at Walgreens). A new chair takes its place.

There were lots of restaurant openings in June, much fewer in July. To no surprise, the dog days of August didn't bark up any great number of debut enterprises either. Here is our list, including one or two we missed the month before.


Bryan In The Kitchen 106 NE Second Ave., Miami
Chow Down Grill 920 Alton Rd., Miami Beach
Daddy's Soul Food 637 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
Egg & Dart 4029 N. Miami Ave., Miami
Florette Cafe 540 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
Shore Club Terrace 1901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach

Geez...I didn't even get to try the Brickell Bridge Bistro.  Wasn't that an Allen Susser enterprise?  Add Scorch to the list of closed establishments.
