5/24/10

CORAL GABLES,  Fla. – (May 24, 2010) – Whether it’s a craving for ceviche or an appetite for Italian, Downtown Coral Gables eateries will satisfy even the most discriminating palates during Coral Gables Restaurant Week, June 7 to 20, 2010. Now in its third year and presented by Bacardi U.S.A., Inc., Coral Gables Restaurant Week gives foodies the chance to indulge in specially-priced, three course menus at a diverse array of 30 Coral Gables restaurants.

Restaurant Week menus feature the international flavor of participating restaurants’ signature dishes and represent savings of at least 20 percent off the regular menu. Guests can take a culinary world tour on Miracle Mile and the surrounding streets by visiting newcomers like Angelique Euro Café, which brings to life the authentic flavors of Spain, Italy, France and Belgium. The journey continues to the Caribbean at Ortanique on the Mile, Peru at La Cofradia Ceviche Bar and Asia at Red Koi Thai & Sushi Lounge, just to name a few.

“Downtown Coral Gables has the most diverse dining scene in Miami, and Restaurant Week is the ideal opportunity for locals to come out and try something new and special,” said Mari Gallet, executive director of the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables. “Because Restaurant Week actually lasts two weeks, there is plenty of time for guests to check out their favorite spots and dine somewhere new as well.”

For two weeks, participating restaurants will offer special three-course lunch and dinner menus and guests (21 years of age and older) will have the opportunity to try the Original BACARDI® Mojito Cocktail, the official cocktail of Coral Gables Restaurant Week, at participating restaurants with full bars.

“The Original BACARDI Mojito is the perfect cocktail for Taste of the Gables and Coral Gables Restaurant Week,” said Margaret McDonnell, brand director, BACARDI Rums. “The mojito has become synonymous with Miami and this fresh-tasting drink is ideal for celebrating during Miami’s sultry summer months.”

“We’ve seen a significant amount of commercial growth in Downtown Coral Gables this year, and it’s been a pleasure to welcome a diverse array of businesses to the area,” said Brad Rosenblatt, president of the board of directors of the Coral Gables Business Improvement District. “From cafes to boutiques to the nearly complete Coral Gables Museum, there are plenty of new experiences waiting for visitors, and Coral Gables Restaurant Week is the perfect time to stop by and check them out.”

Restaurant Week menus are available at both lunch and dinner depending upon the restaurant. Participating restaurants include Anacapri, Angelique Euro Cafe, Bangkok Bangkok II, Benihana, Bugatti, Caffe Abbracci, Caffe Vialetto, California Pizza Kitchen, Da Vittorio, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Fritz & Franz Bierhaus,  Graziano’s Restaurant, Il Grissino, John Martin’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, La Cofradia Ceviche Bar, La Dorada, Le Provencal, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Ortanique on the Mile, Pardo’s Peruvian Cuisine, Pasha’s, Por Fin Restaurant & Lounge, Red Koi Thai & Sushi Lounge, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Spris, Sushi Maki, Talavera, Tarpon Bend, The Globe, and The Bar.
