Tucked into a narrow, unmarked space on wedding-salon-stuffed Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, the 14-seat restaurant serves unforgettable meals that rotate so often you could return every week. The night I ate there, one of the best dishes included luscious pieces of rabbit cooked sous vide and doused in a red wine reduction that overshadowed any lingering hint of gaminess. The hare's light flavor was the perfect foil for sofrito-infused black rice studded with tender, slightly spicy disks of chorizo. Crisp fried artichoke hearts weren't at all greasy. Sprinkled with a bit of lemon juice, the dish was unique and memorable. Also impressive were a dozen translucent slivers of locally caught wahoo sliced with nigiri-like precision and topped with a refreshing mix of finely diced cucumbers, apricots plumped in red wine, and pickled ginger. Spots of a tart lychee-passionfruit puree helped accentuate the fish's natural sweetness, and a sprinkle of smoked sea salt delivered a hint of earthiness.
