Rothstein Business Partner: "I Have Nothing to Say to You"
I just returned from a very brief interview with Moe Sohail of Ultimate Cigars and Fine Wines on Federal Highway near downtown Fort Lauderdale. I walked in. I introduced myself. Sohail pointed to the door. "I have nothing to say to you," he said. "Have a nice day." I showed myself out.
It's hard to blame Sohail for being terse. This past week, he's seen his ambitious plans for a cigar and martini bar go up in smoke. Bova Smoke was to be Sohail's venture with Scott Rothstein and Jack Jackson, former owner of the eponymous downtown steak house.
Today, Bova Prime on Las Olas remains open, but Bova Ristorante in Boca closed, somewhat mysteriously, late last month.
