John Lennon famously sang that love is all you need -- but it's so much better when food and wine are part of the package. Coral Gables newest eatery, Love Is Blind Food & Wine, will be offering up all three.
The third Miami restaurant by Carlos Galan and JC Chamizo, the concept behind the new spot is fine dining, affordable prices and love, love, love. Entrees run $17.99, $20.99 or $24.99, and include an appetizer of choice.
The menu includes items like Asian vegetable spring rolls, Serrano ham croquettes (just like those at Dolores), a trio of mozzarella, goat and ricotta calzones and a charcuterie plate.
Entrees include braised steak brasatto ($20.99), brick oven chicken galleto ($17.99), "Love Is Blind" strawberry risotto ($24.99) and salmon a la sal (sea salted crusted salmon, $24.99).
The new digs reportedly have a high-end lounge vibe, and there are two bar options on site. House wine runs $4 a glass or a (cheap!) $14 a bottle -- and they've got signature cocktails, too.
As far as decor - thing warm and candlelit with love quotes all around.

Hours are as follows: opening Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. and Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m.; closing Sunday through Wednesday at 11 p.m., Thursday at midnight, Friday & Saturday at 1 a.m.Check out more details on their website.
