Miami Beach restaurants lose their sidewalk dining permits

|

Things will look a little different along Ocean Drive after nine restaurants lost their sidewalk cafe permits in a recent review by Miami Beach administrators.

The nine were among 13 restaurants that did not have their permits for sidewalk dining renewed for the next 12 months. The revocations were due to a mix of police incidents, complaints, code violations, noise ordinance problems and unfavorable reviews on social media sites.

The establishments range from Cuba Libre at 524 Ocean Dr. on the south end up to Il Bolognese at 1400 Ocean Dr. on the north. Other Ocean Drive establishments that did not have their permits renewed were Jalapeno, the Ocean 7 Cafe, the Place, Caffe Milano, Voodoo, Il Giardino and the Carlyle Cafe.

A total of 131 businesses had their permits renewed for the upcoming year. Miami Beach mayor Dan Gelber had urged the city to act against restaurants with a history of violations and complaints, including concealing from consumers or misleading them about the price of large alcoholic drinks served at many Ocean Drive sidewalk cafes.

The city also revoked two permits on Espanola Way (belonging to Espanola Cigars and Boteco) and two on Lincoln Road (Tapelia and Ole Ole). The establishments can re-apply for cafe permits for 2023.
