Morimoto closing Sept. 30 in South Beach

And another one bites the dust. This time, Morimoto at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand in South Beach. Get your fix fast before the official closing on Sept. 30, exactly one year after it opened. Rumors were rampant all summer that this was imminent.

Confirms the Shelborne, “Morimoto South Beach will be closing on Sept. 30. We want to thank Chef Morimoto and his culinary team for their work and time. We anticipate a new concept launching in time for Art Basel. In the interim, hotel guests and visitors alike will be welcome to dine in the hotel’s Lobby Bistro for breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoy cocktails in the renowned Drawing Room, Library Bar and poolside Oasis Bar and Grill.”
