It's been a rough week for Miami restaurants as two more causalities are registered: Downtown's DGB and Brickell's Mare Nostrum. DGB, short for Damn Good Burger, opened in May of last year and was the second venture from the owners behind Mia at Biscayne. DGB seems to have failed to bring in enough workers looking for a power lunch of grease and beer. DGB's website has the following statement: "It is with much sadness that we must announce: Effective immediately, DGB will no longer be operating. It has been a pleasure serving you for the past year and we look forward to serving you again in the future."
The short lived and overstaffed Mare Nostrum, Latin for "our sea" has closed their doors after a few short months of operations. The expensive seafood restaurant gave it all they had, flying in chef Pedro Gallardo from Spain, hiring a kitchen brigade of 42, and shipping in vast amount of fresh fish that never sold. [ShortOrder]
