December Openings and Closings

Despite the holiday rush, December saw no abatement in restaurant openings. Nice weather, tourism, and delayed fall debuts were the incentives. Most new restaurants fill a niche: The Wine Dive, Havana's, Le Macaron, or Brooklyn Water Bagel, for example.

January and February will feature more anticipated openings, with projections for Tropical Acres reopening, B&G Oysters, and the Rebel House in Boca Raton. After the jump, this year's restaurant news. As usual, fill us in on what we've missed in the comments.
