Green Table Artisan Kitchen & Bistro Coming; Whisk Gourmet Moving

Green Table Artisan Kitchen & Bistro hasn't opened yet, but from what we can tell, owner Monica Rios is serious about regionally sourced, artisanal food.

Rios arrived in Miami eight years ago from Venezuela and she quickly

started transitioning from accounting to cooking. She attended

culinary school and worked at restaurants like Cacao and Fratelli Lyon

before opening her own catering company: Moca


"I love the organic movement, then that became local and right now

it's farm to table, green table - that's my evolution," said Rios.

"We're really looking forward to [opening]."

Everything at Green Table will be prepared in house and a majority of ingredients will

be sourced from small farms in south and central Florida, according to Rios. It will be open for lunch and have take-out gourmet foods for dinner at home. While the

menu isn't final, you can expect a good selection of raw, vegan and

vegetarian options. That's good news in a city with a dearth of options for non-meat eaters.

The small bistro is expected to open in January where Whisk Gourmet

currently operates. Whisk will be moving to a larger space in South

Miami after Thanksgiving, and according to co-owner Brendan Connor, they

expect to be fully operational by mid-December. At it's new digs, the restaurant will accommodate 74 and will be open for dinner.
