Jack Frost on South Beach Melts Away
Closed for business!

Jack Frost we hardly knew you. Six weeks after the custard and burger joint quietly debuted on Alton Road (next to Master's Pizza), there are now signs proclaiming that the space is "for rent" and their phone is disconnected. That was fast -- even by South Beach standards. Interestingly, Jack Frost closed the same week that Shack Shack opened its doors a few blocks away. However, we doubt that there is a connection because the few times Short Order passed by Jack Frost it was always empty and forlorn. We'll just chalk it up to that certain je ne sais quoi of some restaurants making it here and others failing. Or we can just say that it probably sucked.
