May 2011 Restaurant Openings and Closings

And the burgers keep on coming. May saw the opening of two new burger places and more are slated to begin operation this summer. Can we get a little variety here? The good news is there were a few welcome additions, such as Little Lotus, a small restaurant serving mostly Japanese tapas in downtown Miami, and Mi Vida, a great vegetarian cafe in the MiMo District. Here are the openings and closings for May (and those not included in April's round-up).
