Giralda Under the Stars

Miami is the envy  of many during the winter months.. The weather is golden and there's no better way to spend it than outside. That is one of the main reasons I think Giralda Under The Stars in Coral Gables is genial!. Produced by the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables and presented this year by Zacapa Rum, it happens on the first Friday of every month from November to April. Just imagine music, art and over a dozen restaurants and bars bringing Giralda Avenue alive between Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Galiano Street.

Giralda Under The Stars in January

Otherwise known as "Restaurant Row", the street becomes one giant party, as participating restaurants bring out their tables and chairs from 7 pm to midnight and serve their culinary delights to the beat of some live music.  I love how you can choose food from all the over the world in just one block and there are opportunities for all tastes and budgets.

Let the feast begin!

Taking advantage of  the starry night, I came out for this past month's Giralda Under the Stars and had a marvelous time. The weather was cool, the ambiance was festive and the food was delicious. I munched away at Spritz Pizzeria, Divino Ceviche and The Local Craft Food & Drink. Oh what a night!

Live Music keeps things lively.

The next Giralda Under The Stars will take place on Friday, February 7th. For more information or to see a directory of participating restaurants, click here.

In the meantime, walk down Giralda Avenue with me through my photo gallery:

Loved sitting outside Spritz Pizzeria

The pizza was finger licking good! Did you know you can
make your own pizza here? This one had a crispy thin crust,
and a decadent combination of mushrooms, black olives,
goat cheese and tomatoes. Can I get a "yum" please?

Divino Ceviche, one of my top Peruvian food spots, has opened
its second location.  Now you can satisfy the craving both
in Doral and in Coral Gabl

Divino Ceviche- a taste of Peruvian Nirvana. The chunks
of mango give it a Miami flair.

Chicken Causa - Always order one of these treats when I'm here.

The place was packed and the street is lit up so nicely.

My first time at The Local Craft Food & Drink. I liked!

Duck Pate Croquettes served with Olives and Cuban Crackers

Roasted Bone Marrow with Asian Chimichurri and Toast Points

Glazed Doughnut Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel and
Crème Anglaise. The place was packed and we had to wait
a while for it, but I'll tell you, it was worth the wait.
