Swine Southern Table & Bar brings Southern flavor to Coral Gables.
The term March Madness applied to the restaurant scene in Miami this past month. Several heavily anticipated venues by some heavy-hitters arrived:

Jeffrey Chodorow of China Grill Management opened Biscayne Tavern at the b2 hotel in downtown Miami. Though the restaurant is still in its soft-opening phase, there are more than two dozen beers to pair with the gastropub's simple yet satisfying food.

Michael Schwartz's Cypress Room opened in the Design District. In a departure from his two casual eateries, Schwartz has gone upscale with white-linen service, wine-pairing dinners, and classic cocktails.

50 Eggs' Swine Southern Table & Bar brings Southern hospitality, communal dining, and a large bourbon selection to Coral Gables.

March also saw the closings of two Miami-area favorites. After seven years, neighborhood pub Clarke's closed, and Clive's Café shuttered after nearly four decades.

Hotly anticipated spring openings include Jamie DeRosa and Michael Reginbogin's Tongue & Cheek and California transplant Umami Burger.
