And it only gets better.

When we pulled up I thought, looking at the neighborhood, that even I might not want to get out of the car.  But this was wonderful.  Perfect in every way.  Cloth napkins, salt on the table, a huge wheel of Parmesian cheese with honey and bread – help yourself-.

Then desserts on display.  Eclectic.. and I think thats the first time I ever used that word.

This is THE PLACE to try.  Open just a month they have it all pulled together.  Magnificent menu.  We had a Ceasar salad – more than enough for two.  Coq au vain, a burger, chocolate cake, a beer and an unusual cosmopolitan.  I brought a brownie home!!!!

The Peacock Garden Cafe

Coconut grove for lunch.  Love this place.

The food is good but the atmosphere is why i go.  Sometimes I just want to eat in the garden and this is one of the few places in Miami where one can do that.  The bonus being the food is good and you take a walk through the Grove afterwards.  It can feel like  wind tunnel outside and they are pretty strict about not serving dinner items at lunch.

Al Carbon

The I first went to Al Carbon it was the best burger around.  Its a STUFFED Burger… with almost anything you might want.  There wasn’t much competition back then, few craft places or pub style burger joints.  Its still really really good, as are the ribs, and deserts.  If you are down Coral Way and want a burger, maybe to sit outside or bring the dog?  this is a good place to go.

The Local

Logomakr_9igh41I was first to the Local with a group of six.. the perfect size group to eat there.  great sharing plates arrived one after the other and each was tasty.  You can also get a good burger, great Fries and i like the chicken dumpling soup.  On Giralda in the Gables.  Be cautioned- they have lunch hours, dinner hours, and an in-between hour where getting food isn’t necessarily easy.
