Coconut Grove Wins Snackdown By a Whisker

​Coconut Grove defeated Coral Gables by a mere seven votes of almost 2,000 cast in our first Snackdown, which ended last night at midnight.

A neighborhood that has prided itself on weird ever since it was settled in 1825, decades before Miami became a city, the Grove fell behind, then clawed its way back during the week of voting. It unexpectedly demolished South Beach in the first round.of voting and never looked back.

Coral Gables, which few expected to make the final round, led for much of the last week.

Both areas have great dining scenes. Highbrow types, like our own Lee Klein, might poo-poo the scene there, but the people have spoken.

A party is planned in the next couple of weeks to present the winning neighborhood with a plaque. Stay tuned!
