closed or closing fort lauderdale area

When we were in Ft. lauderdale and Hollywood in November, we couldn't believe the number of restaurants that closed - especially on Las Olas. I was just wondering if more places have closed after Thanksgiving. Is there a recent list somewhere? We will be back in the area soon and hope that our favorites are still there!

  1. The only place that I can think of that closed recently on Las Olas would be Tommy's -- but Teal Bistro Americana almost immediately opened up in the same space.

      Too bad. We really liked Tommy's. Maybe Teal Bistro will be our new favorite.

    2. a few of those places on las olas which are never the hotel have closed because the hotel bought them out and is supposed to expand. who know what will be now?

        on sunday i saw a sign on one the storefronts that cafe europa was reopening. it was about a block east of the previous location on the south side of the street.

      2. Louie Louie is closed , but Johnny V has opened a casual place there called Smith and Jones. Went the other night and thought it was alright. Would be back for a burger.
