After years of wishful rumors and hopeful murmurs, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is officially setting up shop in Miami. And, as with many new endeavors, the announcement was made surreptitiously via Craigslist.

An ad posted to the site yesterday announces his new outpost at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach, which is currently undergoing renovation and scheduled to completely re-open sometime this winter.

The Craigslist ad reads as follows:

"Iron Chef Morimoto will be opening in South Beach and operating all the F&B at the newly renovated Shelborne Wyndham Grand Hotel. This is a rare opportunity to join a fast growing global restaurant group.

We are looking for Executive Chef and Head Sushi Chef (and sushi chefs at all levels) at Morimoto Miami.

Please reply with cover letter summarizing your qualifications, resume, and salary history in the body of your email (no attachments)."

Morimoto is no stranger to South Florida. In addition to his outpost at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, he's appeared at the SOBEWFF many times. He'll also be attending the Luckyrice Festival at the Raleigh Hotel this November.

This new eatery will join his lineup of restaurants in New York, Napa, Philadelphia, Mexico City, Mumbai, New Delhi and Waikiki. Miami's coming up in the world!

Short Order is awaiting comment from the folks at the Shelborne and Morimoto. We'll update this story with more information as we get it.
