The Weekly Dish is a TRD recurring feature that showcases the latest in South Florida’s restaurant openings, leases and sales. 

After closing its pop-up in Miami Beach, Coyo Taco will open in Brickell next month. Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson may redevelop a former pool hall in Overtown. And Pasión del Cielo is adding two new South Florida spots to its collection. 

Coyo Taco | Brickell 

Coyo Taco will open a second restaurant at Axis Brickell, 1111 Southwest First Avenue, the company announced this week.

The new Mexican eatery signed a five-year lease with the option for up to two five-year extensions, partner and executive chef Scott Linquist told The Real Deal. When it opens in May, the interior space will span 2,900 square feet with about 2,200 square feet of outdoor space. Linquist declined to disclose lease rates. The previous tenant was El Corral, a burger restaurant out of Colombia, and before that, Kokoriko.

The menu and design will be similar to the Wynwood location, which is next to Panther Coffee. Coyo also opened a pop-up at the Shore Club in Miami Beach, but that closed at the end of March. The new Brickell location will be open seven days a week, according to a press release.

Linquist said they saw a void in Brickell for good, affordable tacos. Founders Alan Drummond, Sven Vogtland and Linquist have plans to expand Coyo further in South Florida, and potentially elsewhere in the future.

Marcus Samuelsson/TBD | Overtown

Chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson is in talks to develop a restaurant and entertainment venue in Overtown, the Next Miami reported.

Samuelsson, who has been on “Top Chef Masters” and “Chopped,” got the OK to negotiate with the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency last week for the property at 920 Northwest Second Avenue. His proposal would include redeveloping the Clyde Killens Pool Hall property into a ground-floor dining room with a supper club and entertainment venue on the second floor and a rooftop deck, balconies, bar and lounge areas for entertaining.

The Overtown CRA can negotiate with the second-ranked bidder, Crescendo Jazz and Blues Restaurant and Lounge, if it fails to come to an agreement with the Marcus Samuelsson Development Group. [The Next Miami]

Pasión del Cielo | Brickell, South Beach

The coffeehouse will add Brickell and South Beach to its list of cafes. The Brickell store, an express concept at the Plaza on Brickell, 907 Brickell Avenue, spans 576 square feet and already held a soft opening. The Miami Beach location, a 3,097-square-foot space at 1625 Alton Road, near Lincoln Road, is under construction and will be open by the fall.

Justin Callaway of RESF Commercial represented the coffee company. He declined to disclose lease details, but said both are long-term agreements. [more]
