Dome Sweet Dome
A Caviar Enclave in the Gables

Today, we’re taking you to a magical wonderland.

A place where caviar gets full run of the bar. A place where truffles cozy up to your mac and cheese. Where vodka comes equipped with its own mallet.

As you’ve probably guessed, we’re heading to the Gables.

Introducing The Dome, a tony sanctuary of caviar, bacon-wrapped shrimp and mezcal cocktails, opening tomorrow in Coral Gables.

Your play: an intimate sixth date. Your spot: one of two cushioned alcoves flanking the entrance. Your fellow diner: Andy Warhol. (Well, there’s a picture of him hamming it up with Chanel models, from the owner’s personal collection. Close enough.)

The menu’s got the usuals—plantains, guava-glazed cod, the like. But back to that caviar bar. It’s the city’s first—a tabletop made from crushed quartz in the center of the room where you’ll pick from seven different varieties of roe, ranging from Russian osetra (from Uruguay, naturally) to rare kaluga (just like beluga, only legal). Should you find yourself in a rush, you can also opt to take home a container or six. (Caviar is the new cold pizza.)

To wash it all down: vodka. And a mallet. Because the bottles are delivered with a wax seal that requires you or the bartender to deftly crack it open.

Brute feats of strength: always good on a date.
