August saw the opening of some highly anticipated yet completely different establishments.

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Le Jardinier opened in the Design District, and Trader Joe's finally made its Miami Beach debut.

No significant restaurants closed this month, possibly due to the financial boost Miami Spice gives the culinary industry during August and September.
