Is Porcao Farm to Grill Closed for Good?

Is Porçao Farm to Grill closed?

Miami.com is reporting the restaurant has closed after opening just about two months ago, stating that "a walk-by during prime dinner time Saturday night revealed a dark, empty, shuttered restaurant."

The answer, however, is not so cut-and-dried.

According to an inside source, the restaurant is "not officially closed" and there is a plan to reopen the steak house that features farm-to-table offerings by executive chef Jeff O'Neill, possibly as soon as this week. "They [management] told me we are not closed."

Whether Porçao reopens remains to be seen. Just recently, a rumor circulated that restaurant workers hadn't been paid since the opening and had walked out.

The restaurant, which this past spring, wanted to be a lot of things to a lot of people. In addition to the restaurant, there was an upstairs lounge -- KAO Lounge -- and a cigar bar named KAO Smoke.

We'll update this post with any additional information.
