4th Age Brewing Company: Is Wynwood gaining a fourth brewery?
When 4th Age Brewing Company's Chris Campos and Daniel Morales began their voyage into beer production, they brewed a modest five gallons a month as a hobby. But when the amount of drinkable frothy concoction swelled to as much as 35 gallons per week, costing tens of thousands of dollars, the two friends considered turning their zythological endeavor into a career.

The guys behind 4th Age Brewing have not spoken publicly about their specific intentions to establish a brewery. State records show Morales and Campos have registered a corporation under the name "Miami Beer Ventures LLC." But a brewery might be coming sooner than we think, at least according to an interview published yesterday on Eater Miami.

Is Scott Conant inking a new deal in Miami?
Celebrity chef Scott Conant has a lot on his plate.

The chef, who is frequently seen on many Food Network shows including Chopped, is a successful cookbook author and restaurateur. His Scarpetta first opened in New York City in spring 2008. A Miami Beach location, at the Fontainebleau, opened later that year. Additionally, there are Scarpettas in Beverly Hills, Toronto, and Las Vegas, along with another endeavor, D.O.C.G. Enoteca, at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Does the chef have plans to expand his culinary empire in Miami?

Is Steve Martorano Relocating to SoBe?

Is Cafe Martorano relocating to SoBe?
Nearly two dozen years ago, a burly cook from Philly leased a restaurant space in a questionable part of Fort Lauderdale with the thought of serving old-school Italian dishes.

Now, Steve Martorano is a branded celebrity with two restaurants in Broward County, one in Las Vegas (with a second on the way), and the imminent opening of a location in Atlantic City. At his flagship Cafe Martorano on Oakland Park Boulevard (which underwent a major renovation less than two years ago), celebrities and sports figures savor his meatballs and dance to his music. (Martorano takes over the turntables when the mood strikes.) He's a frequent guest on Jimmy Kimmel's talk show, is a best-selling author, and has his own jewelry line.

The only thing missing? A South Beach location. Martorano and Miami Beach seem like a perfect match. The muscular cook (don't call him a chef) would fit right into the SoBe scene of bright lights and music, and his celebrity clientele wouldn't have to schlep up to Broward for some pasta. Martorano has been tossing the idea around for a while. Last year, he told Short Order: "I've been eyeing this one space. I looked at it three times already. I think that means something."

The answer, however, is not so cut-and-dried.

Michael Mina to open another Miami Beach restaurant?
It seems as though Michael Mina is very bullish about restaurant opportunities at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

The chef recently opened Michael Mina 74, an upscale restaurant/lounge at the megaresort, where diners can feast on burgers with duck-fat fries and fresh seafood straight off a dedicated boat well into the wee hours of the morning.

Exclusive: Jeff McInnis Responds to Ex-Wife's Allegations of Cheating, Abandonment

Earlier this week, Miami.com reported that Melissa McInnis, ex-wife of Top Chef alum and former Yardbird top toque Jeff McInnis, had some pretty strong allegations about her ex-husband.

The former Mrs. McInnis, who has a young daughter with the chef, told Miami.com's Lesley Abravanel that, "Jeff abandoned me and his small infant child." Melissa McInnis also said that 50 Eggs' John Kunkel gave her ex a million dollars when they parted ways. "He lied about the money he got from John and emptied our bank account," she said, adding  "I will fight until we get what's rightfully ours. We helped him build his name, his brand, everything, and for him to be this despicable and abandon us, it's absurd. I do not know how he can look himself in the mirror every day."

In addition, Melissa McInnis told Eater Miami that her ex-husband is a "backstabbing buttface."

Back in July, McInnis departed Yardbird, telling Short Order he wanted to "get back to why I fell in love with this industry in the first place."

Another new brewery could be coming to Miami. Alchemy and Science Brewing Collaborative, the Vermont-based company with a growing brood of craft breweries, filed a trademark application for Concrete Beach Brewery in August.

Even more telling, a basic search for the aforementioned name yields three trademark results, all of them filed by A&S, one of them containing the word "Stiltsville". Last July we reported that A&S, also a subsidiary of Boston Beer Corporation, might be staking a claim somewhere in Miami.
