News Café debuted in 1988 as one of the only restaurants in Ocean Drive’s Art Deco district, an infamously dilapidated area at the time.
The 350-seat restaurant quickly became a go-to destination for locals and tourists alike. The concept thrived for nearly 30 years, open 24 hours and servicing between four and five thousand patrons a day.
It closed in 2019, as many restaurants did during the pandemic.
Now, under new ownership, the famed restaurant, bar and newsstand has reopened at its original location on the ground floor of The Tony Hotel in Miami Beach.
Eater Miami reports, “The new menu, created by chef Henry Hane of B Bistro, features updated takes on classic News Café dishes like Tony’s tomato soup, tuna melt, Aegean-Mediterranean plate, and eggs Benedict, alongside new offerings like pina colada pancakes with grilled pineapple and coconut syrup, and a burger with red wine demi sauce, smoked gouda, and caramelized onions.”
Wow! That’s a sentence!
News Café service hours extend until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
