May was an exciting month for Miami's restaurant scene. The Michelin Guide hosted its star revelation ceremony in the Magic City, Thomas Keller announced yet another project in South Florida, and a three-story food hall named Julia & Henry's opened in downtown Miami.

Other notable openings in May included a brick-and-mortar for Soulfly Chicken, the first Miami-area location of NYC's Bondi Sushi, and a second location for Eleventh Street Pizza.

Lure Fishbar closed in Miami Beach, with owner John McDonald looking for another location to place the NY-based seafood palace, and longtime Palm Beach celebrity favorite, Ta-Boo, closed its doors to make way for Thomas Keller's new (unnamed) project.
