Coral Gables via cab :( HELP

ISO great food, thinking Cuban (when in Rome...) we're staying in Coral Gables overnight and leaving on a cruise the next am, ISO dinner recs that won't kill us in cab fares...

  1. Eating house is there but I don't like it as much as other people do.

    I have not been to Ortanique and Francesco in a while but always had good meals there. I also liked the Graziano's in CG but not quite as much as the original on bird rd.

      Depends where in CG you're staying. If it were between Graziano's in CG vs. going up to Bird Rd. I'd just stay with the one in the Gables. Cuban is pretty much the same everywhere. Havana Harry's is a favorite when I take people from out of town. Gables has gotten dominated by chains in recent years so it's tough to recommend something different.

    2. If you want Cuban near Coral Gables Havana Harry's is a good call.

      1. Ortanique was wonderful but have not been there for awhile since I live in Broward.
