The former site of Umami Burger, at 1080 Alton Road in Miami Beach, has been leased to restaurateurs who plan to launch a new sushi concept, as the street undergoes a rebirth after lengthy construction.
Irma Figueroa, director of retail leasing and sales for Comras Company, represented the new tenants in the transaction. A name for the restaurant will be announced soon, she said.
The 3,000 square-foot space has been home to a host of restaurants over the years. Before Umami Burger it was 8 oz. Burger, and before that, Novecento Restaurant.
Alton Road has seen significant tenant turnover during the past two years, as portions of the street have been closed to traffic due to construction. As the roadblocks have disappeared and construction nears completion, new tenants have moved into the area. Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, a Mexican dining spot, recently opened at 220 16th Street, off Alton Road, as did Lyon Frères Petit Marché, a gourmet food shop, at 1600 Alton Road.
