This morning the Miami New Times reported that Douglas Rodriguez would be closing his last remaining restaurant in South Florida, De Rodriguez Miami, on May 8 with its last day of dining service happening tomorrow, May 7.
The restaurant has gone through several identities since opening four years ago as De Rodriguez Ocean. However, it never took off like many of his earlier restaurants like Yuca and Ola did in the 90s.
The New Times goes on to say that Rodriguez has a new restaurant in the works for Miami and also is currently hosting culinary tours of Cuba and working on a new cookbook. No word yet on that new restaurant concept of his but stay tuned for more details. [Miami New Times]
