If you're a fan of fine foods and handcrafted delicacies, you'll be excited to learn of this news. One of the finest gourmet markets in the world has just opened a new location in Coral Gables.
Since 1945, Epicure has drawn foodies and travelers alike to its original South Beach store, and later to its Sunny Isles Beach location. What started off as a prime meat butcher shop has now expanded to include an on-site bakery, hand-selected grocery items from around the globe, and an executive chef to craft prepared delicacies at their deli counter.
Their award-winning cheese department includes imported cheeses, pates and caviars from around the world and the market additionally features an impressive wine cellar with over 5,000 bottles and two sommeliers on premise to offer expertise and assist patrons with their wine selections.
Having been to their Sunny Isles Beach location, I can tell you that any foodie that walks through their doors will encounter the same feeling children do when walking into a giant toy store; you simply want to try everything.
“We are thrilled to offer the Epicure experience to the residents of Gables Ponce and the surrounding Coral Gables community,” said Jason Starkman, CEO of Epicure. “With a longstanding expert staff—over 50-percent of which have been with us for more than 20 years—and renowned chefs with more than 40 years of experience in our kitchen—we are confident that our impeccable service and delicious selection of fresh and gourmet items will serve the community well.”
In addition to the market, they also feature a full-service outdoor cafe for dining and they'll also be offering cooking demonstrations and classes with Specialty Chef Michael Love. This week, there'll be a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Coral Gables Mayor on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. to celebrate the opening.
