In May, Miami welcomed some household names. Dogfish Head Miami opened at the former location of the Concrete Beach Brewery, the Coyo Taco Group opened Como Como, Kush opened an additional location in the Time Out Market in Miami Beach and Timon Balloo opened Balloo Wallah, a delivery service.

Unfortunately, one of Miami’s best coffee shops, All Day, has reportedly closed its doors. “It was either my health or the restaurant. So let’s take a break,” said Miami Herald owner Camila Ramos Carlos Frias, but left the door open to allow All Day to return at some point in the future.

Miamians can look forward to Groot Hospitality and Ch’i’s Firestone Garage opening at Brickell City Center in the coming weeks.
