Berries in the Grove

2884 SW 27th Ave. Coconut Grove, FL 33133 | South Dade | 305-448-2111

Location Description:

Dining in a Miami restaurant could be compared to picking wild berries. Some are unripe, some are rotten, some prick you like thorns, and some, like blackberries, are delightfully unique but come with a few pesky seeds. The last describes Berries, a friendly spot that's morphed from a laid-back, take-out wraps and smoothies window to a hip, bustling, hippie-centric café complete with a bohemian ambiance that includes hanging lanterns and a tree planted in the center of the dining room. This place doesn't try to break new culinary ground but succeeds at placing well-prepared, generously sized, and relatively healthful dishes on the table. For starters, try the creamy hummus or crisp fried calamari; then move on to pasta, such as Berries' tasty pumpkin ravioli, or if you're feeling carnivorous, the skirt steak ($19), which comes smothered in blue cheese and is accompanied by potatoes and grilled asparagus. Only qualm: The $10 goat cheese wrap undoubtedly appealed to the taste buds but comprised mostly lettuce. Still, Berries' vibe, the massive portions, and a ladies' night where those with XX chromosomes drink free well alcohol every Thursday from 9 till close more than makes up for a that.
