Giralda Plaza: A New Summer Escape in Coral Gables


Giralda Al Fresco - Miracle Mile

Recently, Coral Gables has been busily “streetscaping” the city’s famous Miracle Mile. One of the benefits of this project can be found on Giralda Avenue, where work that’s already been completed has allowed numerous restaurants to expand their open-air seating out into the street itself as part of “Giralda Al Fresco.”

A Fresh Approach

Every Saturday, Coral Gables restaurants like Talavera, La Dorada, The Bar and others set cafe-style seating on the street, allowing them to serve more guests for brunch, lunch, and dinner. 

Adding to the atmosphere and fun is the presence of live musical acts in the area, providing entertainment for those patrons without worrying about things like cover charges or tickets. As an outdoor dining experience, it’s definitely a step up from the typical scattered patio tables behind a bit of wrought iron fencing.

To Eat or Not to Eat

While restaurants in Coral Gables are certainly beneficiaries of the work that’s been done, and is still being done on other parts of the Miracle Mile, they are not the sole beneficiaries. 

A number of shops on and around Giralda Avenue are open during Giralda al Fresco, allowing people to stroll around and enjoy some shopping before a meal, or letting them eat first and then burn off some calories while perusing the variety of wares on sale.

Things to Do, People to See

Giralda Al Fresco marks a great new way of enjoying the businesses on “Restaurant Row,” and the Miracle Mile as a whole. As a regular activity, it’ll be continuing on all summer, and likely well past that! 

As an opportunity to explore the shops and restaurants in the area, it’s the best way to experience all of the changes and improvements that have taken place over the last year. 

Giralda Al Fresco it’s not simply a place, or even a regular event. It’s a chance to get out and enjoy first hand all the restaurants, bars, businesses and people that make Coral Gables such an exciting community.
