Now that South Florida's tourist/snowbird season is winding down, new restaurant openings are slowing down too. March didn't see much movement, but a few notable openings and closings happened.

Last month we lost a few familiars: recent favorites like the Bao Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale will be reopening later this year under a new name. Meanwhile, we're still patiently awaiting a few new concepts set to open this year, including Big Time Restaurant Group's Louie Bossi's, Tap Co.'s Tap 42 in Boca Raton, and Bar Rita in Fort Lauderdale.

Did we miss an opening or closing? Let us know in the comments section.
