tap42There’s been buzz about Tap 42 coming to Coral Gables for a while foodies and craft beer snobs alike have been spreading the word about this much loved Ft. Lauderdale restaurant and bar opening in Coral Gables. And now the time is here.

Tap 42 is open on Giralda for lunch and dinner everyday and brunch Saturdays and Sundays, with happy hour specials that will have you routinely popping in.

The space is big and beautiful, industrial glass garage doors let in natural light and a huge bar is the center of the restaurant with loads of bar seating surrounding it. Thus far, it’s been packed every day, so put your name down and grab a drink at the bar while you wait for your table at the Gables’ newest hot spot.

The menu features food you already know you love like Short Rib Sliders, Ahi Tuna Poke Salad, Oven Baked Shrimp Mac & Cheese and Truffle Filet Steak Sandwich, plus their original additions to the menu like The Prohibition, a burger with white cheddar, applewood bacon, “secret sauce” and dijonnaise or the Chef Drew’s Fried Chicken with Korean chili glaze, honey, ginger, garlic and Asian-style cole slaw. Standouts on the brunch menu include the Chocolate Bananas French Toast and the Green Eggs and Ham Benedict with pulled pork, bacon-cheddar toast, sunny side up eggs, hollandaise sauce and salsa verde.

The big draw, though, might not be the food. Even with a menu that tasty sounding, it’s most likely the craft beer and the extensive bar. Tap 42 was one of the first restaurants to serve The Tank, a brand new Miami brewery, and they’ve stepped up the local beer game with their “Layered Drafts” section of the beer menu. What does that mean? They’re serving the next wave in the craft beer trend, drinks like the Half & Half, half Guinness and half Blue Point Toasted Lager, or the Bruised Apple, Angry Orchard Apple Cider & Guinness. If you’re more a mixed drink fan, you’ll find a tasty selection of hand crafted cocktails, beer cocktails and cocktails on tap.

They’re pushing the bar at Tap 42 and serving us food favorites paired with drinks that you can’t find anywhere else in Coral Gables or beyond.
