Overtown Restaurant Gets Devoured: Urbanite Bistro Closes Tonight

by Ryan @ MRPR on May 8, 2010

According to Urbanite Bistro’s Facebook page, Urbanite Bistro will close its doors tonight.  Urbanite suffered from a tough location, a less-than-glowing review in the New Times, and an all-out war with Yelpers who dared to criticize the food.  Looks like the unhappy customers got the last yelp.  However, I had nice things to say about the food at Urbanite when it made a brief appearance on the power rankings last year.

That is sad. I didn’t make it there. I’ve seen this happen all too often – good concept, bad execution. I think some entrepreneurs / chefs underestimate what it takes to execute well and consistently.
