The Vegas-izing of Miami Continues...

I recently either read an article or a blog post or something about the Miami becoming like Las Vegas in its luring of out-of-town chefs with national and international cachet to run restaurants where they'll step foot in them about once or twice a year. Get ready for the latest addition. According to Gayot, Jean-Georges Vongrichten is opening an outpost of his tribute to Asian street food, Spice Market. I'm not complaining about it. If any city can be bereft of actual street food yet support a restaurant devoted to reimagined and overpriced versions of it, Miami would be it. Opening is sometime in 2008 but I haven't heard anything of a location. Let's take a guess, in a hotel maybe?
