Deli concept restaurant failed test in Miami Beach
It appears that Groot Hospitality's deli-style concept, which featured Winker's Diner restaurant, failed the test. This was reported by journalist Connie Oglie of the Miami Herald chain.
The establishment that was owned by David Grutman closed its doors in December when it had only been open for six months.
The cause of the restaurant that was located in the historic Firestone Garage on Alton Road in Miami Beach is unknown.
Restaurant offered a different concept
Grutman in an interview with the Miami Herald at the opening of the premises in early 2021, indicated that the concept of Winker's Diner was totally different from what was in the area.
"We're not exactly going to be an early dinner kind of place," Grutman said at the time.
The restaurant, which had a capacity for 240 people, offered breakfast at all hours, as well as giant sandwiches. As well as soup and salad.

“I love eating food for dinner, but I like to reinvent it and add our vision,” the owner said at the time.
Owner will open another establishment
Although Grutman would not detail what his next step will be in the establishment, the Miami Herald reported that the owner of the premises plans to open another Groot-style establishment in six months.
They have not yet said what it will be called and what menu it will offer and how it will differ from Winker's Diner.
In the city of Miami there are two establishments with this same concept: , the Toothfairy bakery and Sushi Fly Chicken, which serves pan-Asian food. Both will remain open reported their owners.
Since the pandemic began in 2020, several establishments such as restaurants have had to reinvent themselves, in order to survive, given the consequences that the virus has left in economic matters.
Some, however, have had no better luck and have had to close their doors permanently.
