After almost four years in business, Miami Heat megastars Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem are closing their first restaurant together: 800° Woodfired Kitchen in Aventura.
In an announcement on the restaurant’s website, they cited labor shortages and supply chain issues since the pandemic, which they said has “challenged” the business.
The Aventura location at 2956 NE 199th St. was a franchise of Chef Anthony Carron’s original 800 Degrees, a West Coast brand with offices throughout the United States.
Wade and Haslem opened the Aventura location in 2018 and added some of their own flair to the dishes on the menu by naming items after themselves, including UD’s 800° Woodfire Wings and DWade’s 800° Sliders.
They’ve left the restaurant door open by stating they will be closing the location “while taking some time to re-evaluate the operations and space,” and opened it even wider by adding: “We’ll miss serving you, but we’ve got more in business for you, Miami,” signing it D. Wade and UD.
The 800° Woodfired Kitchen Aventura was co-owned by Wade and Haslem, however Wade remains a global partner and will continue to “help fuel the brand’s expansion nationally and globally”, according to 800°.
