Eat with a Friend at Kouzíne's Café and Get One Lunch Free
When gourmet catering outfits also open up shop with a la carte for the paying public, something tasty usually results. It's true at Whisk in Coral Gables, and now at Kouzíne's Delicacies and Wines a short ride away.
Owners Claudia Batlle and Mariela Valdez Roman are behind this gourmet market and catering outfit on Coral Way (they moved a few blocks west from the original location in May.) And now is just the time to drop in for a visit, since they are offering a 50 percent off deal for parties of two who come in for lunch through the end of this week.
Choose among empanadas, quiches, sandwiches, wraps, and panini.
Empanadas are a steal at $1.95 and come in beef, cheese, chicken, and
spinach. Individual quiches are $3.50 (12 inch pies are $18,) and come
in ham and cheese, shrimp, and vegetable. You can't go wrong with the Italian prosciutto/mozzarella or Spanish jamón serrano/manchego paninis for $7.50.
Perhaps most enticing are Kouzíne's menu items made with the
artisan products it carries. A unique Malbec
wine jelly from favorite Argentinian brand Almacen del Sur, makes a cameo on
the brie panini. For breakfast or a coffee break, take dainty bites out of Kouzíne's Beignets Combo. $6 translates into an order of house-made French beignets with either a cappuccino or espresso, and your choice of Malbec jelly, Torrontes wine jelly, rose petals confiture or a selection of artisan fruit jams.
The two for
one lunch special runs through August 21 and is available from 12 - 2 p.m.
