Sayonara Domo Japones; konnichiwa Michy's?

According to New Times, Domo Japones has closed, and Michelle Bernstein is supposedly taking over the space and moving Michy's there ->
Anyone else heard anything?
that should cause some ripples. I wonder if she'll change it up a bit. I haven't been to her restaurant in some time.
Question: NOW where are we going to park?
Damn, no more walking down the street for a bite to eat.
I've got mixed feelings about this. I'm going to miss Michy's in my neighborhood but at the same time I hated Domo so much that I'm glad it's being taken over by something worthwhile. Hopefully (i) whatever takes over Michy's old spot will be something unique and different (please not another Italian place) and (ii) the DD isn't going to become oversaturated with restaurants to the point where some are run out of business (except Domo, that place deserved to go).
Second - damn flipping awesome! The fact she said Michy's isn't, and never will move shows such an absurd amount of dedication to the area that there should be a plaque put up in her honor (along with the owners of Dogma, Uva, Kingdom, Casa Toscana, etc.).
Miami is definitely missing a good, innovative tapas place. Xixon is good, but the best tapas I've had this year was in a place in Charlottesville of all places. Mas in C-ville had a young vibe, great food and a ridiculously reasonable wine list - all things that will hopefully be in force here.
I can't freaking wait!
