  1. Grandi Pesci breaking ground this month. The old Big Fish location.

    Big Fish Restaurant
    55 SW Miami Avenue Rd, Miami, FL 33130

    1. Bravo TP glad to see you carry the torch!

      I had heard the peeps from Sardinia were going to open something the Big Fish space, is that them?

      City Hall is due to open soon on Biscayne and 20th Street.

      Symcha's is getting very close to opening across the street from Joe's Stone Crabs in SOBE.

        City Hall has its menu up on the website.

        Looks interesting.

      2. I suppose the Jose Andres / Bazaar project for the SLS (Ritz Plaza) on South Beach still qualifies. Reports around the middle of 2010 said construction was supposed to begin January (2011).

          Frod, I get the sense that it might find itself on the "New, coming to Miami in 2012" thread as well. And maybe 2013 at the rate it's going.

        2. Basque restaurant on Biscayne around 52nd (old Canela spot) is now Food Zone Latin Food Spot. Not sure it that's an upgrade.

            Is that the one that was briefly Kantauri?

                wow Kantauri didn't last long. <3 months

          2. Stephen Starr's Makoto @ Bal Harbor Shops. The (sushi) chef is still unknown but I know who the main target was...

              Lots of stuff not updated on this thread. Makoto is now open and the "unknown" chef is Makoto Okuwa. My thoughts on it here ->
