Openings and Closings

Restaurant Openings in Broward and Palm Beach Counties 2013: The Year in Review

For the business world, 2013 was a good year. South Florida real estate bounded back, the stock market saw record highs, Florida unemployment fell to 6.3 percent, and we got tons of new restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Overall, things are looking good these days.

As we close the books on 2013, we figured it was time to pause and reflect on what has happened in our restaurant scene in the past 365 days. Burgers, apparently, are still proving to sell until the cows come home (pun intended). On the opposite end of the fence, we've received ample health-conscious and ethical restaurants. See, our food choices are as split down the middle as our Congress.

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'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
