The future home of Maison d'Azur?

Last month, we reported the sudden closing of Maison d'Azur at the Angler Resort on South Beach. Some comments were left saying Maison d'Azur isn't closing but instead moving to the Sagamore.

Is the rumor true? Well, yes and no. The short-lived restaurant is looking for a new space and was/is (it's unclear at this point) in talks with the Sagamore to move into Social Miami's old space, but nothing has been decided as of yet. The hotel's media contact Jessica Pfeffer confirms that the hotel has been weighing its options and looking to find a suitable replacement that will appeal both to its guests and the South Beach set.

When asked if Maison d'Azur is still in contention to move into the hotel, Pfeffer said the hotel will decide in the coming weeks which restaurant will occupy the space, making it known that the hotel hasn't reached a decision.
