Monday lunch suggestion in Coral Gables; must get to airport by 2 pm
We have a 10 am appointment in Coral Gables on Monday, October 20, and then a flight out at 4:15 pm. We will have a rental car to return. We are looking for a good place to have lunch after our appointment; perhaps someplace that opens around 11:30 so we won't be rushed. Prefer not too expensive, but doesn't have to be cheap either. We don't eat beef, but chicken, fish, vegetarian are our favorites. Thanks for any suggestions.
Here's a good if somewhat dated thread on Gables lunch options ->
Note that Mari-Nali, mentioned in that thread, is now closed. New and notable since that thread was last updated is Por Fin, a Spanish-ish place on Ponce de Leon Blvd. which I enjoy for lunch.
Most places should be open by 11:30 and should have no trouble getting you out in a reasonable amount of time.
Try Catch of the Day on LeJeune just south of airport (b/t Gables and MIA). It looks kind of sketchy (think Old John Silver-type bldg), but seafood is great, and very reasonable.
