Sweet, sweet South Beach. Coming in the wake of the epic fail that was Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade's restaurant disaster, Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams is partnering with ex-NFL player Rudi Johnson to co-own a new South Beach restaurant called Proof. The restaurant will be located within the Z Ocean Beach Hotel and is described as "an inviting and affordable health-conscious and delicious alternative." That there's a lot of adjectives.
And if you're wondering what exactly qualifies two NFL players to own a restaurant, allow us to quote their developer: “Their leadership and determination on the field will translate just as well off the field, and will no doubt contribute to our commitment to making Proof a major Miami Beach hot-spot and success.” No doubt! Oy. Here's hoping it turns out better than D-Wade, because he's still trying to financially—and legally—sort out that whole trainwreck.
