Cutler Bay’s week-old Rumors Bistro and Bar is located where O.C.’s Raw Bar and Grill used to be. Woodsy upscale ambience with leather couches, pool table, TV’s, dance floor, stage with lighting, projection screen. Strip mall location (Old Cutler Towne Center) assures ample, well-lit parking. No smoking. From the late night menu, Ana and I chose Chicken Tenders with barbeque sauce. They were just right without being greasy. Even the fries, which can be difficult, were great. Rumors hasn’t had an official launch event, so there’s much to look forward to as they ramp up. So far, they have live bands on Fridays and Saturdays, and Wednesday is Ladies Night with Karaoke. There are plans for a website, a Jazz Night and a Line Dancing Night.
Update 2008-03-03: Rumors now has a website at
