The last month of 2017 saw the opening of some good establishments and the closing of a favorite.
The Palace Bar reopened on Ocean Drive, and chef/partners Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth opened a satellite of their New York City restaurant, Root & Bone.
Finally, Mignonette Uptown closed, though the original location continues to thrive.
