Miami Restaurant Openings & Closings, June 2012

And so it came to pass that in the month of June, in the year of 2012, The Bazaar by José Andrés finally opened in the SLS Hotel South Beach. And with it, the also-heralded (if less so) Katsuya by Starck.
After numerous permit delays, Macchialina Taverna Rustica, from the Pubbelly team, debuted in South Beach. And Georgia's Union replaced Morgans restaurant in the old Joe Allen space -- now it's organic comfort food, still run by the Morgans folks.
On the other end of the happy scale, word is in that Michelle Bernstein will be closing Sra Martinez at the end of next week. And Zeke's Roadhouse, another long time local favorite, shut down with a quickness that shocked. Another surprise was the announcement that Tudor House Restaurant would retire come the end of summer. The latter news is softened by reports that Zakarian has other Miami plans up his chef jacket sleeve.
Keep going for more openings, and to see what new restaurants have been added to our list of upcoming establishments.
