For some reason, in Miami a restaurant will open and then hold its grand opening about six months or a year later.
Lokal's Matthew Kusher is taking a more traditional approach to the grand opening party -- he's holding it less than a month after his Coconut Grove restaurant actually opened its doors.
On Thursday, January 19, Lokal's opening their doors for an old fashioned grand
opening celebration -- complete with a ceremonial ribbon cutting by Miami
Mayor Tomas Regalado. Florida International University's head football
coach Mario Cristobal is also scheduled to make an appearance.
