Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Area 31 makes its debut tonight on the 16th floor of Brickell Avenue's Epic Hotel. Executive chef is John Critchley, who trained under Boston's renowned chef Ken Oringer (Clio) and was known to make a mean morcilla at his own Beantown tapas bar. The sommelier is Emily Wines (from San Franciscos's Fifth Floor) -- and no, I'm not making her name up. Then name of the restaurant derives from Fishing Area 31, which runs along the coast of Florida, Central America and northern South America. Much of the seafood on this eclectic, Mediterranean-influenced menu will be sourced from the namesake coastal region. Interior design includes water views, as do seats on the outdoor terrace. It's breakfast and dinner to start, with lunch being added next month.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
