A new eatery is headed downtown. Miami-based restaurant Le Chick has purchased the property + lot at 438 King St. for ~$6 million. ROA LLC sold the mixed-use space, which is 3 stories high and totals 9,000 sqft.

Le Chick is located in Wynwood, Miami. The restaurant serves comfort food inspired by Dutch eatery Rotisserie Amsterdam, which is famous for its juicy chicken dishes + double patty burgers.

The Miami dining spot serves rotisserie chicken with fingerling roasted potatoes, spicy mayo, and chimichurri, along with shareables like street corn with truffle aioli, cotija cheese, togarashi, and cilantro.
