The Business Improvement District (BID) of Coral Gables brings back its signature event that attracts excitement every year amongst locals, tourists and foodies alike — Coral Gables Restaurant Week.
For three whole weeks — now through June 26 — everyone has the opportunity to taste cuisine of more than 40 of Coral Gables’ best fine-dining restaurants with prix-fixe menus at a discounted rate.
“Taste of the Gables is the best opportunity for locals to see the fantastic dining options Coral Gables has to offer,” said Marina Foglia, executive director of the BID. “And with the variety of restaurants we have, it’s like you get to dine around the world within walking distance.”
The chefs at each restaurant work passionately and interminably each year to create a unique Coral Gables Restaurant Week Prix Fixe menu better than the year before, highlighting new techniques and food staples distinctive to that restaurant.
Guests can expect only the best dishes on these exclusive menus, including a Full Rack of Lamb with Potatoes and Chimichurri at Christy’s, Hot Fried Bacon & Date Croquettes from Trust & Co., succulent Roasted Pork Belly with Mole Blanco and house white rice at Talavera Cocina Mexicana, fresh fish Catch of the Day at Angelique Euro Café, and a Warm Bread Pudding with caramel sauce from Bricktop’s.
Special events hosted by some of Coral Gables favorite restaurants also will be occurring throughout this three-week period. Coral Gables’ centralized valet system on Miracle Mile is still in full effect and pricing has been reduced to $5 for every guest’s convenience.
“We have some of the most well-known and talented chefs in the nation right here in Coral Gables,“ said Mindy Mcllroy, president of the BID’s board of directors. “They’ve been preparing for weeks to create a delicious menu to showcase the best of their restaurant’s dishes.”
