A Scene-y Latin Seafood Stunner in Coral Gables
A glass of wine.
A strange and wonderful Cuban sandwich.
Two of these things concern your dinner tonight.
Okay, we lied.
Three of these things concern your dinner tonight.
, a stunning Mediterranean boîte for famous folk, fresh ceviche and wine-assisted
intimate encounters, now open in Coral Gables.
Either the ocean or Jacques Cousteau’s formal dining room. That’s the inspiration here. You’ve got
hanging driftwood, turquoise glass columns, a white marble bar, some gilded coral and, for good measure, a
100-year-old refurbished crystal chandeliers
The plan: dinner. In a few hours. Turn to the person on your left and invite them. Your move: the
high-backed leather throne banquettes for two. Your dining room companions: the local Latin glitterati (tell
the Miami Sound Machine we said hi).
You’ll start by summoning over some plates of octopus carpaccio, and then work up to the osso buco by way
of a deconstructed Cuban sandwich or three (don’t worry, the pork is still intact).
And in the future, if you’d prefer somewhere a bit more clandestine to consume your citrus-soaked ceviche,
ask about the secret table in their hidden cove. It’s an undercover dining room with a candle-filled
fireplace, white-tablecloth service and enough space to throw a pretty wild party.
Or a weirdly sexy Rosh Hashanah dinner.
