Giralda Under Stars

Restaurants on Giralda Ave. celebrate dining outdoors

Whether it’s a craving for ceviche, an appetite for Mexican or even Vietnamese, Giralda Under the Stars presented by Zacapa Rum brings dining, music and art to the streets of Coral Gables.

More than a dozen restaurants and bars on Giralda Avenue’s Restaurant Row (between Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Galiano Street) will bring culinary excellence and popular libations outdoors, literally under the stars.

Restaurant Row will be closed to vehicular traffic so that Giralda Under the Stars’ participating restaurants and bars may fill the street with tables and chairs, live music and entertainment from 7 p.m. to midnight first Friday of the month through March. Presenting sponsor Zacapa Rum once again invites patrons to experience the award-winning blend of their ultra-premium rums, and witness firsthand its international reputation for exceptional taste and quality. In addition, some new elements this year include: The Local Craft Food & Drink featuring Caja China Creations every month as well as a new theme to be incorporated for each series.

Participating restaurants this year include: Castelluccio, Divino Ceviche, Ikura Sushi Lounge, La Dorada, Miss Saigon Bistro, Pete’s Authentic Cooking, Spritz of Coral Gables, Talavera, The Bar, The Local Craft Food & Drink, and newcomers Vicolo Italian Kitchen, GreenLife Miami, and Threefold Café. All will be open and offering locals, families and foodies alike many food options to enjoy along with live music, art and the beautiful Miami area weather.

“This event allows Restaurant Row to shine, coming together to offer a wide array of food from all over the world with choices to satisfy any and all palates and budgets,” said Marina Foglia, executive director of the Business Improvement District (BID) of Coral Gables, which produces the event.

Most restaurant menus can be viewed online and reservations are highly recommended. There is plenty of parking in the municipal parking garages and there also will be valet stationed at each end of the street. No tickets required to enjoy the festivities and ambiance.
