In May, Miami welcomed some familiar names. Dogfish Head Miami opened in the former Concrete Beach Brewery location, the Coyo Taco Group opened Como Como, Kush opened an additional location inside Time Out Market in Miami Beach, and Timon Balloo opened Balloo Wallah, a delivery-only service.

Sadly, one of Miami's best coffee shops, All Day, reportedly closed its doors. "It was either my health or the restaurant. So we’re taking break," owner Camila Ramos told the Miami Herald's Carlos Frias, though she left the door open for the possibility All Day might return at some point in the future.

Miamians can look forward to Firestone Garage by Groot Hospitality and Ch'i at Brickell City Centre opening in the coming weeks.
