Back in November when Kris Wessel parted ways with Florida Cookery, it was reported that he left "to pursue other career avenues". Now Miami.com writes that the chef is opening up a new restaurant called Oolite Restaurant and Bar, "a healthy dining concept" in the former Cooper Avenue space. The blog also reports that Wessel has teamed up with "Roman Cherstvov, the former partner of Cooper Ave's Amir Ben-Zion," and that their restaurant, which will consist of "simplified eating with plant, land and sea-based protein offerings," is due to open May 30.
