Restaurant Roll Call: Openings/Closings for May

May came and went, bringing sweltering weather and a shakeup in the local dining scene. Longtime eateries like Mancini's and Trevini shut their doors (in Mancini's case, just temporarily), while new ventures like Atlantic Ocean Club set sail. There was also a handful of notable openings, including the anticipated El Jefe Luchador in Deerfield Beach, from the folks behind Charm City Burgers. If we missed something, tell us in the comments field below.
