​In September's countdown, we reported just five restaurant openings and a few closings. The latter number is holding firm this month, but October saw quite a few more debuts -- including much anticipated SoBe eateries Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, Pubbelly Sushi, and Barceloneta. Ricochet Lounge is also a notable newcomer, as Kris Wessel of Red Light designed the menu.
