OpenTable Closes The Book On Miami Bars

OpenTable has released its 2009 Diners' Choice Awards for Restaurants with the Most Vibrant Bar Scene. Our congratulations go to Miami's very own, um....gee, that's surprising. Hmm...well, who cares that we didn't make the stinking list. We're not bitter, and indeed offer our heartfelt congrats to Bootsy's in Cincinnati, and to Chino Latino in Minneapolis, and to Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philadelphia...I mean imagine that -- a place called Eulogy Belgian Tavern has a more vibrant bar scene than anyplace in Miami!

Anyway, South Florida didn't get shut out completely: Vic & Angelo's in Delray Beach and YOLO of Ft. Lauderdale both made the grade. The complete list is here.
