Miami Chefs Move, Restaurants Close, People Get Taxed And Die

Heralded French chef Christian Delouvrier is gone from La Goulue in The Shoppes at Bal Harbour. If you log in to the restaurant website for details, it will say: "Coming Soon! La Goulue Bal Harbour".

Executive chef Carlo Macaluso has left the relatively new Cita's Italian Chop House in Coconut Grove. Maybe he didn't have the chops.

Mark Militello is the new executive chef at 1 Blue in the Regent Bal Harbour. He has taken over for Gerdy Rodriguez, who after his blink-of-the-eye stint at the Regent is now chef de cuisine of Abokado in Mary Brickell Village. Hiro Asano is Abokado's new executive chef.

South Beach shutdowns include Big Al's Bagels on 5th Street; Novecento's Alton Road location (the Brickell Novecento still humming along); and Baire's Grill, the Argentine steakhouse on Washington Avenue (coming in its' place: I Corsini).

Rumor has it that a major Miami chef will soon be moving on from the helm of a major Miami restaurant. Details to come.
