With another month comes another bunch of new restaurants.

Though we still have plenty of spots that we're waiting to see open, this month saw the slowest growth of restaurant openings across both counties in the past several months.

The five weeks of November also saw a number of surprising restaurant closings. These include longtime Lake Worth favorite Havana Hideout, best known for its spot on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Further south, Fort Lauderdale bid farewell to several establishments, including the Restaurant People's Fork & Balls off Las Olas Boulevard, a space that will morph into a new concept by the same group behind Boatyard, YOLO, S3, and Tarpon Bend.
