4. (Un)sustainability? Two popular farm-to-table eateries closed this year. Sustain Restaurant + Bar ended its year-and-a-half run in midtown. And James Beard Award-nominated chef Kris Wessel shuttered his Upper Eastside restaurant, Red Light Little River. (Wessel has since headed to South Beach with the opening of the ritzy Florida Cookery at the James Royal Palm Hotel.)

5. Not-so-pacific in the Design District. Michelle Bernstein closed her critically acclaimed Sra. Martinez, parted ways with the Omphoy Ocean Resort in Palm Beach, and, after just two short months, shuttered her casual café Crumb on Parchment at the Webster. In 2012, Michy's empire took quite a beating. There was also somber news related to Jonathan Eismann, once considered one of Miami's top restaurateurs. He owned the Design District's Pacific Time, Fin, Q, and Pizza Volante but closed the eateries a few years ago. Then, this past October, he allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run accident. No charges have been filed, but the tragedy has certainly left its mark.

6. Bakeries open but fail to impress. Miami experienced an unforeseen bakery boom, courtesy of Acme Bakery & Coffee, Lee & Marie's Cakery, and Corner Bakery. Although it was a step in the right direction, none of these spots compares to the world-class bakeries in cities such as New York and San Francisco. Our bet: It'll take a gifted toque like Hedy Goldsmith or an out-of-state import (Thomas Keller? Joanne Chang? Anyone?) to cure Miami's bakery blues.

Dear friends, neighbors and fellow Europeans,

We would like to take a moment of your respected time, to introduce ourselves. 
We are a German, Hungarian family owned, boutique Deli and Gourmet market. Just like most Europeans we fell in love with Miami’s magical flair and tropical climate. After being 12 years Miami locals, and any trip to Europe, returning with suitcases packed with European groceries orders made by our friends, we decided it’s time to bring a taste of Europe to Miami Beach, with a traditional European deli, bakery, gourmet market and a coffeehouse all rolled into one just like back “home”/in Europe. We will carry a vast variety of the highest quality in, western and eastern European deli products, imported ethnic and gourmet groceries and bakery items. Please “Like” our page “Europa Delicatessen Deli & Gourmet Market” and give us your feedback on specialty brands and products that you would like us to carry and we will promise you as long as we can import it and meets the demand, we will carry it. In addition we will be offering traditional European salads, soups, sandwiches and platters served during breakfast Lunch and dinner, to dine in, take out or delivery. We are looking forward to serve you and welcome you to our home “Europa”.
Alexander & Timea
