There are quite a few new openings in Coral Gables – including some new late-night options.

If you’re looking for a place to get a good post-midnight bite, there are two brand new restaurants here to scratch that itch without sacrificing quality or style.

Ichimi is a ramen-focused restaurant serving bowls of noodles hot and cold in traditional and modern styles. On the more traditional end, order the Tonkotsu, a pork belly ramen served with hanjuku egg, bamboo shots and red pepper, or go the new wave route and try the Carbonara, a ramen served with creamed egg, diced pork belly, shallots, garlic confit, scallions and micro broccoli. The kitchen is helmed by a Chef Constantine De Lucia, who formerly worked at Momi Ramen, Miami’s standing ramen champ. We have confidence that Ichimi will give them a run for their money. They also have small dishes, gyoza, buns and more. They’re open for lunch and dinner and stay open until 1 am.m during the week and 2 a.m. on the weekends.

Trust & Co. is now open in the spot across the street from Fritz and Franz, further activating this area for eating good eats and drinking good drinks. Your favorite food is probably on the tight menu at Trust & Co. – short rib ravioli? Steak? Burger? Oysters? Cheese? Burrata? Yes please to everything. The space has been totally transformed into a blend of cozy, rustic and industrial styles. Grab a seat at the bar and order a craft cocktail until 2 a.m. every night. Look out for their weekend brunch, where they’ll incorporate the freshest ingredients from the farmers market and rotate the menu according to what’s in season.

5411 Empanadas has finally opened an outpost in Miami after a few successful locations in Chicago and it’s right here in Coral Gables. You’re probably already a fan of these baked Argentine pastries, but have you tried a bacon, dates and goat cheese empanada? Or ratatouille? What about banana and Nutella? Malbec Beef? We didn’t think so. Consider 5411 for your next catering gig, their menu has something for everyone, from the simplest eater to the most adventurous.
