This June, the Business Improvement District (BID) of Coral Gables is dishing out a forkful of flavor with its first-ever Coral Gables Culinary Month, celebrating Downtown Coral Gables’ thriving food and beverage scene.
An expansion of the BID’s signature dining promotion Coral Gables Restaurant Week, Culinary Month promises 30 days of exclusive, interactive and mouthwatering events, promotions, special menus, chef demonstrations and more.
Coral Gables Restaurant Week, now in its 11th year, is taking place now through June 24. Participating restaurants are serving three-course, prix fixe menus at discounted prices. With savings of at least 20 percent off, menu prices will range from $13 to $48 per person — giving customers the flexibility to find the right restaurants for their taste buds and budget.
For the first time, foodies and wine enthusiasts may purchase tickets to enjoy exclusive culinary experiences such as:
• An intimate, table-side Chef’s Dinner experience with a carefully crafted menu prepared by La Taberna Giralda;
• An exploration of the wine regions of the world without leaving Downtown Coral Gables during a lively Wine Walk;
• Scaling a “Miami-made” restaurant — What it takes to thrive in the 305: an exciting panel about Miami’s restaurant scene featuring Sam Gorenstein of My Ceviche, Otto Othman of Pincho Factory, and Abe Ng of Sushi Maki — three of the City Beautiful’s most successful restaurateurs;
• A specially themed Venetian farm-to-table dinner by the renowned Chef Allen Susser of the Café at Books & Books
