Coral Gables Restaurant Week

CoralGablesRestWeekLOGO-300x286 It’s that time of year again when Coral Gables puts its restaurants on display during the slower summer time, from June 10-30th. Several delicious restaurants will offer a prix fixe meal which will include great savings. It’s a terrific way to to  try out new places! Some of my favorites are on this list but I know there are few I haven’t visited. Surely, I’ll squeeze in one or two during this 3 week event.


Below find a lengthy list of participating restaurants sourced from shopcoralgables.com. For more details, visit here.

Spotted: Coral Gables Restaurant Voted Top 5 Power Lunch Spot

HauteLiving.com published a list of the top 5 power lunch spots in Miami and Hillstone on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables made the short list! Located at 201 Miracle Mile, I can personally tell you this restaurant is buzzing around lunch time. It’s corner location, where Houston’s used to be, makes it an easy meeting point. The variety on the menu also makes this restaurant appealing for a lunch time meeting. There’s something for everyone! Check out the menu here.

Oh and the service… is excellent as well. It’s one of my favorite Coral Gables eateries.


Curious what else made the list?

Il Gabbiano
The Capital Grill


Al Fresco Dining

Although the weather is rainy and gray, I’m hoping for great weekend weather for my out-of-town clients. They are considering buying in Coconut Grove and have asked for outdoor dining recommendations. Oh, where to start?

Gibraltar Restaurant in Grove Isle

I have to pass along my go to Coconut Grove eatery: Peacock Cafe. The outdoor ambiance is so whimsical and friendly. I’m mentioning Gibraltar in Grove Isle as well – the water views are spectacular and the seafood-focused menu is fresh and beautifully prepared. This restaurant was also recently featured in Haute Living’s top five outdoor dining rooms in South Florida.

I’ll be passing on the list to my clients as well. Do you frequent any favorite restaurants with remarkable outdoor dining spaces?
