Top Miami Eatery Shuttered Because of Deadly Disease

New, 2 comments

The prize for the "Wait, What?" story of the day goes to Miami's Area 31 restaurant, which has been shuttered indefinitely because of an outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease. Now, Area 31 was recently named one of Esquire's top new restaurants this year, so she's legit. The outbreak was noticed in the restaurant's host luxury hotel (the Epic Hotel) when three guests were diagnosed with the disease, and apparently another person actually died back in September. That's not gonna be good for business.
