April saw a surprising number of restaurants that come with themes.

Now, in the Magic City, you can drink in an 80's-themed bar, dine in a working gallery, or pretend it's morning any time of the day at two new all-day breakfast restaurants.

Notable closings include Andrew Carmellini's the Dutch and Rosa Mexicano in South Beach. The Forge closed for renovations, and Knaus Berry Farm shuttered for the season.

In coming attractions, Time Out Market is set to open May 9 with 17 eateries, three bars, and a demo kitchen.
