Dine Under the Stars on Restaurant Row in Downtown Coral Gables

12/04/09

CORAL GABLES, Fla. –  On Friday, December 4, Downtown Coral Gables’ Restaurant Row (located on the 100 block of Giralda Ave. between Ponce de Leon Blvd. and Galiano Street) will be bustling with al fresco dining and live entertainment from 6 p.m. to midnight as part of Giralda Under the Stars. During this new monthly event, which will take place the first Friday of every month from December 2009 through May 2010, the street will be closed, allowing for pedestrians to enjoy an evening stroll under the stars. From the local dinner crowd looking to walk to their favorite neighborhood restaurant to the traveling gourmand seeking a new scene, Downtown Coral Gables has something for every palate.

Ten Downtown Coral Gables restaurants and bars will extend their dining rooms onto the street in a celebration of Restaurant Rows’ culinary options. The 100 block of Giralda Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic so that Giralda Under the Stars’ participating restaurants and bars may fill the street with tables and chairs as well as live music and entertainers.

Locals and foodies alike can enjoy Vietnamese, Spanish, Italian and Mexican cuisines among other ethnic and eclectic culinary options. Participating restaurants and bars include: Archie’s Gourmet Pizza, Bangkok Bangkok II, Castelluccio Ristorante, La Dorada, Las Vegas Restaurant, Miss Saigon Bistro, The Bar, Talavera, Pasion del Cielo and coming soon, Il Grissino.

Giralda Under the Stars will be a lively atmosphere to enjoy before or after other festive and cultural events set for December 4 including the city’s Holiday Tree Lighting (next to City Hall, overlooking the west entrance to Miracle Mile at LeJeune Rd.) and Art in the Park (taking place at Ponce Circle Park, 2180 Ponce de Leon Blvd.) featuring a main stage with musical performances starting at 7 p.m.
