PB Steak to Close in Miami Beach, Plans to Move "Over the Bridge"

PB Steak is moving "across the bridge."
It looks like the Pubbelly boys are planning a strategic chess move with one of their concepts.

Pubbelly Restaurant Group founders Jose Mendin, Andreas Schreiner, and Sergio Navarro announced they are moving their beefy concept, PB Steak, from its Sunset Harbour location to the mainland.

According to Miami.com, the current incarnation will close Sunday, August 3. Although plans are in the works for relocation "over the bridge," so far there's no firm date -- or venue -- for the grand reopening.

A release states the Pubbelly boys are looking at spaces in midtown, Wynwood, the Design District, and the blooming Biscayne corridor. Details on the new location are in the developmental stage.

Andreas Schreiner said the high cost of doing business in Miami Beach was the catalyst for the steak house's departure. "Unfortunately, the rising costs of real estate would not have allowed us to continue to operate PB Steak without raising our prices, which would go against our commitment to our customers to be a local, everyday-eating establishment."

PB Steak opened in January 2013 and was listed in Miami New Times' "Top 15 Restaurants Reviewed in 2013" for its "wonderful cuts of meat, French onion soup dumplings, and bacon confit." The steak house was also the venue for the Pubbelly boys to get creative with different pop-up concepts, such as their Taco Belly lunch menu and PB Fish, a seafood-shack happy-hour pop-up within the restaurant.

In addition to the recent opening of L'echon Brasserie and the relocation of PB Steak, the Pubbelly Restaurant Group has plans to expand the brand globally.

This place was very affordable for what it was.  If they do indeed re-open it in another location, then it's safe to say it was the rent.  I'm looking forward to it's new location.

If they opened in Jan 2013, how short of a lease did they sign so that the cost of real estate would come into play??  Commercial leases are usually 3-5 years minimum and have options to renew.

Say it like it is boys, the customers weren't coming in.  An "everyday-eating establishment" is laughable.

I'm looking forward to a complete revamp of the space from wealthy Russian or South American investors, a shiny new concept, and tiny, tiny plates of tweezer-placed food starting at $18 an ounce. Should be fabulous.
