This just in: The River Seafood & Oyster Bar is moving to a new home along the Miami River. 

Open since 2003 at 650 S. Miami Ave., chef David Bracha’s 80-seat restaurant is heading to a new, expanded site more than a mile away at 340 W. Flagler St.

No need to rush to have your last meal at the current location, however: The move isn’t expected to take place until early 2015.

The restaurant’s new home will be on the ground floor of Flagler on the River, a 250-unit rental tower developed by the Melo Group. The developer is looking to bring two additional restaurants to the complex.
