LIME Fresh Mexican Grill, the South-Florida-born fast-casual Mexican restaurant concept, has opened a new location in South Beach in the exact same location where the brand was originally launched in 2004. The 800-square-foot store is located on Alton Road in Miami Beach Is owned and operated by Left Field Holdings, LLC, a Miami-based franchisee that currently owns four Lime restaurants — South Beach, Downtown Dadeland, Doral and West Kendall.
Left Field Holdings is also scheduled to open a new location in Midtown Miami in a few weeks, and in and in North Miami over the summer.
“I’m very honored and excited to bring the Lime brand back to its original location in South Beach,” said Grant Gussin, president of Left Field Holdings. “This is an incredibly unique opportunity and we cannot wait to recreate the magic that Lime experience on Alton Road.’’
When it first opened its doors in 2004, Lime represented the vibrant and food-conscious culture of South Beach and quickly became a local favorite. As the brand expanded, Lime continued to maintain its neighborhood appeal with its engaging staff and fun, dynamic atmosphere.
To celebrate Lime’s return to South Beach, this new location will go back to its roots by offering the original 2004 menu and pricing for two weeks, the original uniforms worn by the restaurant staff, and images will adorn the restaurant commemorating the people and events that defined 2004.
Lime South Beach offers Mexican-inspired dishes made with quality ingredients, including non-GMO beans, all-white-meat chicken and fresh produce. Ingredients are sourced daily from local vendors and prepared without the use of microwaves or freezers. The menu also features homemade guacamole, queso dip, nachos, tacos, burritos, salads, soups and margaritas.
