No word so far on the exact fate of the place or what the couple's next move will be.

Route 9 was started by the husband and wife team of Paola and Jeremy Goldberg, who opened the bistro in early 2011. The restaurant, named for the road where the Culinary Institute of America is located in Hyde Park, New York, was an extremely personal venture for the young couple, who met at the famed culinary school. Route 9 was named Best Restaurant in Coral Gables by Miami New Times in 2011.

In late 2012, another talented husband and wife duo, Brad and Soraya Kilgore, became partners in Route 9, but departed just a few months later. Route 9's Jeremy Goldberg and New Times' critic Lee Klein feuded over a review of the restaurant, which contained some inaccuracies, including the year the couple graduated CIA.
