Gastro moves: GastroPod closes at Aventura Mall, Gastrobar opens in Sunny Isles

Crab salad from Sugarloaf Gastrobar in Sunny Isles Beach.

Changes afoot at two restaurants with “gastro” in their names: 

GastroPod Miami has closed its outpost at the Aventura Mall food court after four months of slinging burgers, fries, Asian-inspired noodles and more. GastroPod’s mobile Airstream trailer remains parked at 160 NW 26th St. in Wynwood. Keep an eye on its Twitter account for hours and events.

Sugarloaf Gastrobar (unrelated to GastroPod) has opened at 18090 Collins Ave. in Sunny Isles Beach, replacing the former Beer 360, which closed after a year in business. Sugarloaf aims to pair craft cocktails with globally influenced food like crab salad with ginger and apple, pistachio-crusted salmon, and a smattering of Brazilian specialties. Open daily for dinner; 305-466-4599 or
