Shikany Closed, Scheduled to Reopen Mid-February
Shikany dark on a Saturday evening.
Shikany, the inventive Wynwood restaurant from Michael Shikany, is closed this weekend.
Trying to make a reservation, OpenTable's system stated, "A temporary connectivity issue occurred between OpenTable and the restaurant's electronic reservation book."
On a lucrative Saturday evening, a visit to the eatery showed no signs of life -- only a note taped to the door:
"Shikany is closed this weekend due to plumming [sic] issues. We apologize."
A phone recording states the restaurant will reopen in mid-February.
Shikany, self-described as "departing from Miami's comfort zone of rustic and simplistic dining," opened in April 2014 and drew praise for high-concept dinners filled with the creative chef's edible "dusts," "soils," and "paint."
Messages left for the chef/restaurateur weren't immediately returned.
