Best Restaurant in Coral Gables (2010)
Host: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another edition of Name That Restaurant. Please give a warm welcome to this week's celebrity guests, Kim and Khloé Kardashian! (applause). Let's get going with the first clue:
This teeny, 15-seat eatery in Coral Gables posts its daily-changing menu on a blackboard.
Khloé: The Coral Gables High School cafeteria?
Host: No, sorry, that's not it.
Host: No, sorry. Let's try another clue:
Brother/sister owners keep this lunch-oriented place open weekdays from 11 in the morning until 7 p.m. and serve home-cooked American favorites such as buttermilk fried chicken, goat cheese fritters, fried green tomatoes, and grilled grouper sandwiches, along with one of the tastiest key lime pies in town.
Kim: Donny and Marie?
Host: I don't think so.
Host: Moving right along — and girls, really, try to concentrate:
Sandwiches are all under $10, sides and apps less than $6, entrée salads $11 to $14, main course plates $12 to $18; beverages, served in mason jars, include homemade iced tea and fresh-squeezed lemonade.
Khloé: Mansion makes a great Long Island iced tea.
Host: Nope. Kim, last chance...
Host: Sorry, but the answer is Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering, so very popular with locals that it will soon move to larger digs. Thanks so much, girls. Be sure to tune in next week when our guests will be Iggy Pop and Pitbull.
