7 Food Trends at Restaurant Week You Just Have to Try


7 Food Trends at Restaurant Week You Just Have to Try - Miracle Mile

Restaurant Week is in full swing at various restaurants in Coral Gables, and we’re enjoying all the great food on offer. If you’re wondering about the latest trends in food for 2017, we’ve got seven for you along with seven great Coral Gables restaurants where you can enjoy them.


With the Caribbean just to the south, there might not be a better place in the U.S. to grab the latest rum-inspired cocktails than Florida in general, and Coral Gables in particular. Rum is expected to make a big splash this year, and the best place to test out new drinks would be Copper29 Bar.

Mediterranean Cuisine

You’re likely to be hearing a lot about Mediterranean cuisine over the course of the year, which covers Greek, Italian and even Spanish. One of the easiest places to get a taste of the Med is Caffe Vialetto.

Quality Casual

Everybody needs a spot where they can drop in for a tasty, quality bite, relax a bit and get going without any hassle.  House Kitchen & Bar could just be that spot for Gables residents, where they make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in and throughout your dining experience.


Charred, smoked, blackened – that little bit of carbon that can make food delicious is expected to be one of the hottest trends in food this year. For a good bet, try Mesamar Seafood Table or Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and see what they’ve got listed for properly burnt offerings.

Spiced Up

Expect to see a lot more spices, particularly East Asian and Indian spices, becoming a big deal in food. Feeling the burn is going to be as much a part of the experience as texture and flavor. For a great spot to catch some high heat, you can check out Bangkok Bangkok II.


Surprising though it may be, 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the pizza. Not merely for last-minute delivery and game day bacchanals, but experimental pies and different styles of crust. If you need a recommendation for something different in a pizza, California Pizza Kitchen is a great starting point.

Food & Drink Pairings

Much like matching carpet and drapes in interior design or shoes and dresses in fashion, finding the right wine or cocktail to go with your meal is a never-ending search. For those who want an expert opinion on what drink with your meal, check out Zucca.
