This year has already been a busy one for the South Florida restaurant scene. Two months into 2017, we have a new crop of restaurant openings and closings.

In February, celebrity chefs Geoffrey Zakarian (Point Royal) and Ralph Pagano (Naked Crab) unlocked the doors to their new restaurants. There were even a few brewery openings.

Other longtime establishments closed, including Fort Lauderdale's beloved Maguires Hill 16 and Mangos on Las Olas. Here's a recap of the most recent restaurant openings and closings in Broward and Palm Beach Counties:
