Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar debuted its new Midtown Miami location on Saturday.
The 6,150-square-foot restaurant at 3252 Northeast First Avenue was previously occupied by Apeiro Kitchen & Bar, which closed its doors after less than a year. It also includes a 3,500-square-foot patio space.
Tap 42, owned and operated by Tapco Restaurant Group, is primarily financed by a $2.5 million loan from EB-5 funding, as The Real Deal reported last July. Another Tap 42 location opened in Coral Gables last year, also with the help of EB-5 funds.
The outdoor area in Midtown offers covered patio dining as well as a social gathering space. In addition to having 42 craft beers on tap, the menu also offers selections like a Rainbow Sushi Bowl and Spicy Salmon Tostones.
“We’ve been in love with this location since we first saw it years ago, as we feel it is the best and highest profile location in all of mid-Miami,” said Alex Rudolph, partner and vice president of development in a press release.
“Midtown has a large and quickly expanding population, augmented by areas like Edgewater, Wynwood, the Design District, Downtown, Brickell, and MIMO, and can even draw from areas like Miami Shores, Bay Point, and Miami Beach,” Rudolph said. “On the heels of the success of our Boca Raton and newly-opened Coral Gables locations, we couldn’t be more excited to join the mid-Miami business community.” — Grace Guarnieri
