Coral Gables has launched Culinary Month.
Celebrated throughout June, the event, which aims to celebrate the area's cuisine and creativity, is an expansion of the city's annual restaurant week. Patrons can expect 30 days of food-centric events such as chef demos, panel discussions, themed meals, and tours.
In conjunction with these events, local eateries will offer three-course tasting prix fixes during the 11th-annual Coral Gables Restaurant Week, which runs through June 24. This year's lineup boasts more than 30 participating restaurants, including longtime favorites Ortanique on the Mile, Divino Ceviche, and Christy's. Newcomers include Sushi Club and Mara Basque Cuisine, offering scrumptious dishes such as grilled lamb chops slathered in a secret marinade and seared octopus glazed with soy. Both lunch and dinner menus will be available at most restaurants, and discounted menus will range from $13 to $60 per person.

“Our first-ever Culinary Month will engage foodies and wine lovers alike, highlighting downtown Coral Gables as one of Miami’s greatest culinary destinations,” says
Noteworthy events include an immersive evening hosted by chef Allen Susser on June 19 at Books & Books, where a Venetian-themed experience will brim with plant-based bites such as eggplant caponata and cauliflower risotto ($30 per person, plus $18 for an optional wine pairing). Another exciting addition is the Wine Walk on June 28, when attendees can explore the vast wine regions of the world, one sip at a time ($45).
The city will also sponsor a free panel discussion Thursday, June 7, at WeWork Ponce de Leon. "Scaling a Miami-Made Restaurant: How to Thrive in the 305" will feature local restaurateurs Sam Gorenstein of My Ceviche, Otto Othman of Pincho Factory, and Abe Ng of Sushi Maki discussing how to start, scale, and grow a restaurant in Miami and how the Coral Gables community has played a role in their respective restaurant ventures.
