CORAL GABLES, FL. ­– May 1, 2015 – Calling all foodies! Mark your calendars, because Downtown Coral Gables will celebrate its 8th annual Coral Gables Restaurant Week presented by Bacardi U.S.A, Inc. from June 8 to June 28, with delicious new restaurants and exciting new events.

“Now in its eighth year, Coral Gables Restaurant Week has become one of South Florida’s premier gastronomic events,” said Marina Foglia, Executive Director of the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables. “One of the things that sets Coral Gables apart from the rest of Miami is its broad array of fine cuisine rivaling any other international city. Coral Gables Restaurant Week offers carefully crafted three course prix-fixe menus with at least a 20% savings, allowing veterans and newcomers alike an opportunity to explore new eateries and return to old favorites.”

It all kicks off on Thursday, June 4, when foodies from all over will come together for “Taste of the Gables,” the Restaurant Week launch party. From 6:30-8:30pm at the Westin Colonnade, 180 Aragon Avenue, attendees will taste samples from Restaurant Week participants cast their vote and select the winner for “Best Taste of the Gables.”

VIP tickets are available for $55 online and $65 at the door.

For the next three weeks following the kick off event, participating restaurants will offer special three-course, prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus at discounted pricing. Guests, who are 21 years of age and older, can pair those meals with the classic BACARDÍ and Coke, the official cocktail of Coral Gables Restaurant Week, and MARTINI® Prosecco as the featured wine.
