In March, restaurant dining rooms, bars, breweries, and just about everything shut down in Miami and across the nation as the United States dealt with a global pandemic.

In May, restaurants were allowed to open their dining rooms. Since then, enterprising restaurateurs opened new establishments — some making their way through the "new normal" with takeout and delivery service only.

But other businesses have closed over the past several months. Yuca, a Lincoln Road staple for decades, is looking for a new home, and Punch Bowl Social barely opened its doors before it shuttered.

Listed below are establishments that have formally opened, that are planning to open, or have permanently closed. Restaurants that have reopened their dining rooms during the pandemic can be found here.


Days and hours of operation are subject to change. It's always best to call before you head out.
