Anyone who traveled down Coleman Boulevard this summer probably noticed the construction on the former Samos building and wondered what was going on. Restaurateur John Adamson was hard at work on his vision for a casual 1940s beach bar with Miami, Latin, and Cuban flavors, The Americano. And it seems now, they are very close to opening.
A short video tour of the restaurant's outdoor seating is posted on Facebook, and it looks like a tropical oasis full of blooming hibiscus and plenty of vegetation. The Americano is currently hiring, so they're probably a few weeks out from welcoming patrons.
