New tiki hut-style restaurant to take over Scotty's?
A group called David One, LLC, was chosen today, as the group to build a restaurant on the Scotty's Landing site, at the RPF proposal meeting at the MRC (Miami River Center) building downtown, which is the City's Administration Building.
The group already owns Monty's South Beach and the Flanigan's chain, also Sugarcane and Sushisamba.
Their plan is to build a tiki hut-style restaurant on the site and to keep it feeling "Grovey."
Many feel that this is not a good decision in light of the fact that the Grove already has a Monty's and Flanagan's but to be fair, that doesn't mean the new proposal will be a knock-off of either.
The one proposal for the Chart House that came in by current Chart House owners was of course accepted, and they plan to upgrade their site. Landry, the group that owns the Chart House, had also proposed a bid for the Scotty's site, too, in order to combine the two.
It's up to City Manager, Johnny Martinez who can reject or pass the proposals along to the City Commission.
Earlier in the day, a group of friends met at Scotty's and a bus transported them downtown to the start of the 1:30 pm hearing.
