Renaissance at the Gables

Neighborhood: Coral Gables/S. Miami
Sitting on SW 32 Avenue, in a mostly residential area, Renaissance at the Gables is more than just a restaurant. The large structure houses a restaurant, banquet facilities, and VIP room that is really just a nightclub. If you've ever been to a quinces, you know banquet-hall food is usually not very appetizing. Not here - the food is so good, the restaurant operates full-time, even when there is no banquet, wedding, or 15th birthday party. Try the juicy and tender churrasco ($15.95), which comes with maduros (fried sweet plantains) and rice and beans. Or treat yourself to one of the best-priced seafood rice platters, the arroz con mariscos for two ($30.00). Servers are friendly and attentive, and you'll be treated the same whether you're in the restaurant or VIP room. But be prepared for a festive evening - there is always live music. It's definitely not a place for quiet, romantic dinners.
