In March, restaurants blossomed like spring buds.

Notable openings included Smorgasburg Miami, rooftop bar Rosa Sky, and David Grutman's The Key Club. The much-loved All Day coffeehouse reopened after an extended hiatus.

Nunzio's Miami, a restaurant that has served locals for decades, closed its doors this month.

In April, look forward to Carousel Club, a bar centered on a vintage carousel at Gulfstream Park.
