Craigslist Restaurant Ads: Opera Singers and Thieving Meth Addicts

Every day every caliber of Miami restaurant heads to Craigslist to seek the help they need.

You can just as easily find the Genuine Hospitality Group staffing up for the onslaught of tourist season as you can a nameless Kendall pizza joint looking for a prep cook and dough stretcher.

It's a democratic forum. Companies offer their opportunities while anyone and everyone is free to pursue them. Yet if you stop driving like such a maniac and slow down to look a little closer, you'll find things are more interesting than they appear.
