Today the Genuine Hospitality Group announced on its blog The Genuine Kitchen that it will be closing Cypress Tavern in the Design District come April 30.
The restaurant, which first opened as a high-end, old-Florida inspired restaurant Cypress Room in March 2013, and re-invented itself as the more laid-back, Cypress Tavern in the fall of 2015.
In 2014, Eater’s traveling food critic Bill Addison described the restaurant as having an "odd, wonderful formality doesn't take itself too seriously.” And more recently the restaurant’s reboot got a three-and-a-half star review from the Miami Herald.
On the blog Schwartz said, “It’s never easy to close the book on a project you feel genuinely proud of, but our lease term is ending, and it’s time to move on.” He goes on to say in the statement that, “I’m humbled by the support we have received over the years from our guests. No decision like this is ever easy, but for us, it’s the right one.
Reps told us no further comments will be made on the matter.
