♦ Like a can of Pringles, once you pop, you can’t stop. And this week brought news that Broken Shaker and Eating House are reopening permanently in the same location as their initial pop up runs. That’s great news for the many fans of both establishments. According to Short Order, Eating House is going to reopen on Friday, August 17th and then will close for renovations in October. Broken Shaker, on the other hand, is doing their renovations first (actually, the entire Indian Creek Hotel in which they’re located is being renovated) and they hope to reopen in November.
♦ In addition to the twice-popped pop ups, Miami.com reports that TIKL, the Sugarcane-esque creation from the chef and owner behind Altamare, is planning to open at the end of the month. The restaurant, which is located at 1450 Brickell Avenue, also unveiled several of its menu items, which appears to feature a healthy number of seafood dishes just like its sister restaurant.
♦ 50 Eggs, the hospitality group behind Yardbird and the forthcoming restaurant Swine (taking over the old Les Halles spot in the heart of Coral Gables), announced the name of their new Asian concept, which will be called Khong. The focus will be on the food of Northern Thailand (did anyone say Pok Pok? yes, please).
♦ Michael Schwartz, of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink and Harry’s Pizzeria, announced a new venture, Home Brew, the label for his beer collaboration with Alabama’s Back Forty Beer Company. The brew is a classic American Ale but what makes it uniquely Floridian is that it will be brewed with Seminole Chief (Semi-Chi) rice, which is locally grown, and cane sugar. You can find the beer on tap (and in large format bottles) at Harry’s Pizzeria and Michael’s Genuine. Beer aficionado Miami Malt Bomb gives it a whirl on his blog.
