Looks like Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth are making their way back down to their way back to South Florida. It was announced that next year they'll be opening a new restaurant concept together called Sarsaparilla Club inside the Shelborne Wyndham Grand hotel — taking over the same space that until recently housed Morimoto South Beach.
Prior to leaving to NYC together to open Root & Bone, both McInnis and Booth worked in high-profile restaurants around town like Yardbird, Gigi and Khong River House. They both also did stints on Top Chef — McInnis on season five and Booth on season 11 — and who's coupling was rather controversial and played out in the press.
Their new venture will serve "American dim sum" and will open up sometime in early 2016. Stay tuned for details. [Miami.com]
