Dinner in Coral Gables?
My boyfriend and I are catching a concert in Coral Gables mid-week in April. Any suggestions for a late-night dinner? (We are familiar with South Beach area but would rather stay near CG.) We love different types of ethnic cuisine, good bar scene a plus. Willing to spend $ 20-30 for an entree if the quality is there. Thanks for your help!
Ortanique (nuevo-Caribbean) is slightly over your price range but probably best fits the bill.
Por Fin is another good option, primarily Spanish but with a Mediterranean hodge-podge, nice looking place, mostly in the right price range.
Mint Leaf (Indian) has fans and detractors, I've thought the food was pretty good (though far from the best Indian I've ever had). It's been a while since I've been, but they had some interesting chaats as starters and the dosas were good too.
The liveliest bars in the Gables are probably at Houston's and Tarpon Bend, both chains.
