Hogzilla's Inspired Barbeque, the restaurant named after a mythical giant pig/beast has closed. The South Beach restaurant, which opened the first week of November, 2011, was confirmed closed -- at least for now.
During a visit to the restaurant back in November our critic, Lee Klein, called Hogzilla, "a fun place with an intriguing and promising menu".
A call to the restaurant confirmed that Hogzilla is closed this
weekend, but will reopen with new management behind it -- possibly as
early as early next week.
No word yet as to menu changes or even if the giant hog/beast is staying on as a consultant.
Stay tuned to Short Order for updates.
