Bocas House Coral Gables: It’s More Than Just Milkshakes

By Santiago Cardona

Yeah, yeah. We get it. The milkshakes at Bocas House are decadent, delicious, and Instagram worthy. While this is all true, please don’t let the shakes be the only reason you go there. Like most of you, I only thought of Bocas House as “that place with the milkshakes.” But truth be told, I was extremely impressed with the quality of the food on a recent dinner at their new Coral Gables location (2 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables).

Graziano’s: The Gold Standard for Argentinean Cuisine

By Melanie Galarce

Graziano’s has long been recognized locally as the “gold standard” for Argentine steak and cuisine. With several locations in Miami including Bird Road, Brickell, Coral Gables, and Hialeah, this is the steakhouse that consistently delivers top-notch quality food and has been a staple in our community for quite some time. I hadn’t visited in a while so when we got an invite to check our their Coral Gables location (394 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables), Mitch and I jumped at the opportunity to revel in a good steak meal.

POKÉBAR Raises the Poké Bar

By Mitchell Nover

Poké restaurants have been popping up all over Miami for the past year or so. It’s a bubble that’s bound to burst, but the new PÓKEBAR (1558 S Dixie Hwy, Coral Gables), across from the University of Miami campus, seems to have staying power. The first sign is the fact that the restaurant is owned and operated by a 21-year-old college student. Yes, Cristian Marquez opened a damn restaurant while still studying for a degree. Overachieve, much? The second sign of POKÉBAR’s potential for longevity is Cristian’s clear concept and dedication to quality product. He’s not just out to make a buck; this is his dream, and it comes through in the food. That means in sourcing his fish, he aims to use the best and most sustainable raw fish he can find while still maintaining a reasonable price point. This philosophy also extends into all areas of the restaurant’s offerings – from produce to sauces.

Melting For Ms. Cheezious

Earlier this month, one of our favorite gals, Ms. Cheezious, made her way into Ponce de Leon and became a Coral Gables resident – aptly on National Grilled Cheese Day. Long ago, she stole our hearts and healed our cheese cravings with her delicious offerings at what was then only a food truck obsession. When a brick and mortar location in MiMo became a reality more than a year ago, we rejoiced with happiness. Now, we’re melting at the thought of a second location with new offerings to make this menu even more enticing.
