As Miamians detect a glimmer of light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, restaurants in the area continue to open at a feverish pace.
Notable March 2021 debuts include Abba Telavivian Kitchen, which offers Mediterranean breakfast and lunch inside a cozy house; and Salvaje, a stylish Japanese spot in midtown.
Sadly, Wynwood has lost one of its defining establishments with the closing of Wood Tavern. The beloved dive bar closed in mid-March. Barbarella Dadeland, a bistro that opened during the pandemic, has also closed.
In April, Miamians can look forward to the opening of Strawberry Moon — a collaboration between David Grutman and Pharrell Williams inside the Goodtime Hotel. Firestone Garage, another Grutman venture, is slated to open soon as well.
