6 Reasons To Visit Coral Gables Restaurant Week

By: Rachelle Lucas


I love when a restaurant "week" becomes so popular that it grows into a month-long event.

Coral Gables Restaurant Week is back, and this time you have three whole weeks to taste your way through Coral Gables, giving you plenty of time to try new restaurants and revisit old favorites.

Featuring more than 35 restaurants and 6 newcomers, all will be offering a delicious prix-fixe menu at a discounted price. Guests over age 21 can pair those meals with the classic BACARDÍ® Cuba Libre, the official cocktail of Coral Gables Restaurant Week, and MARTINI® Prosecco as the featured wine. Both beverages a refreshing treat for summertime.

On the event website, each participating restaurant has its own tile where you can click through for more information, directions, and links to their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts if you'd like to peruse some appetizing photos. 

Check out www.coralgablesrestaurantweek.com to see for yourself and to make reservations.
