This region's famed dining scene is finding it tough to operate in the current pandemic climate. Some South Florida restaurants have shut down thanks to COVID-19. While many are only temporary, others have been permanent.\n"In response to the rise in cases and spikes of COVID-19 here in Florida, we have elected to close the entire restaurant," Naked Taco wrote on its Facebook page.\nNaked Taco, which has locations in Miami and Coconut Creek, made the hard decision to shut down temporarily to keep the virus from spreading further into the community. Not only will the dining room be close, but the restaurant and bar will not offer takeout or delivery for the time being.\nWhile Naked Taco has plans to come back, other restaurants around South Florida have seen COVID-19 deal a death blow to their operations.\nLaid Fresh, the Wynwood spot, which was known as a place where "hangovers went to die," shuttered entirely on June 23. Obra Kitchen Table, which was open for only two years in Miami's posh Brickell district, also made the decision to close.\nAlso, White Rose Coffee and John Martins Irish Pub have posted statements saying that "the final curtain" has come.\nIn response to the rise in cases and spikes of Covid-19 here in South Florida, we have elected to close the entire restaurant. We will monitor the reports and when there is a significant drop in cases and spikes we will be back open. We wish all good health and safety. pic.twitter.com/cPUGdOfw2v— Naked Taco (@lovenakedtaco) June 26, 2020\nOther restaurants have been forced to shut down for not following mitigation rules.\nVoodoo Lounge on Miami Beach's famed Ocean Drive will be closed until at least July 17 for violating Miami Beach's orders.

We have had a wonderful time thanks to all of you, our cherished Guests, Staff, and Friends that we have met over the years. We have met you every which way you can imagine, through Baptisms, Communions, Confirmations, B'Nai Mitzvah, B'Not Mitzvah, Quinces, Engagements, Weddings, Divorces, and through Celebrations of Life. We have met you on the golf course, fundraising, and every community event you can think of. We have hosted the biggest and the best St. Patrick's Day parties and we have done it "Our Way". A big thank you goes to the City of Coral Gables for all their support over the years, and a special thank you to our landlord of 30 years Robert Fewell, who was always there for us with his infinite words of wisdom.
