The shortest month had a sizable impact on Miami's food scene.

Hialeah's first brewery, Unbranded, opened, and entertainment venue/eatery/bar Punch Bowl Social premiered in Wynwood.

Also in February, the Seven Dials, a beloved English gastropub, closed its doors, and Wynwood Marketplace shuttered (with intent to reopen).

On the horizon, the Doral Yard is expected to debut this spring.
