So I’m flipping through the new issue of Dining Out magazine, which is basically an ad-driven listing of restaurant menus interspersed with a few articles. It is hard to tell what is bought-and-paid-for and what isn’t. So I’ll assume it all is. And then I stumble upon what appears to be an ad for Jonathan Eismann’s restaurant empire (Pacific Time, Pizzavolante, Fin, and Q; the last two are not yet open but will open soon). Here’s the ad:
Granted, Pacific Time used to be on Miami Beach. But it crossed over to the mainland a couple of years ago. And the other three restaurants are definitely not on the Beach (and never have been). So, the moral of the story is: the beach is not the Design District.
