Miami's dining scene exploded in May, when several of the city's best chefs opened much-anticipated eateries.
Brad Kilgore's Ember debuted in the Design District, and Coconut Grove saw the addition of Michael Schwartz's Tigertail + Mary.
Sadly, the city lost several fine establishments, including the Wynwood Yard and Soyka.
This month, Miami looks forward to the opening of Spanglish by Cocktail Cartel and Giorgio Rapicavoli, as well as Boia De, by the owners of La Pollita.
