Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Pizza Volante, what was left of Jonathan Eismann's mini-restaurant empire in the Design District, has shut its doors.

Less than two years after opening, the small pizza place on North Miami Avenue followed the fate of its siblings, Pacific Time, Q, and Fin, even though it seems to have fared better than them while it was open. The restaurant served good pizza, in the beginning at least, and earned our Miami New Times Best Pizza Joint in 2010.

But we knew it was only a matter of time. The Pizza Volante space was listed for sale back in September and, as far as we can tell, the listing was up until last week.

For now, we know Eismann is consulting with Spartico at the Mayfair Hotel. Who knows when he'll resurface and with what.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
