Not yet ready to dine indoors, here are my September pics for some great outdoor dining settings that have either permanet sizable outdoor dining areas, or have created new spaces to allow for proper el afresco dining!


1. Bellini @ Mr C Hotel | Upscale Dining with a View

Tigertail + Mary

2988 McFarlane Road
Coconut Grove, FL 
(305) 800-6672

I adore the food, staff, interior design and decor of this restaurant. Belini and Mr. C's Hotel are amazing additions to the Grove.  Such a lovely setting and fabulous views of the water!  Great place to have lunch by the pool and do a staycation!

2. Tigertail + Mary | Patio and Garden Perfection

Tigertail + Mary

3321 Mary Street
Coconut Grove, FL

If you didn't make it to Tigertail + Mary before COVID, you finally have your chance. Opening again it will be a hot spot for sure since the food and bar venue is on point!  Michael Schwartz will not disappoint with his creation connected to Park Grove Towers.

3. Barracuda Grill | Street Takeover

Barracuda Grill

3035 Fuller St
Coconut Grove, FL 
(305) 918-9013

Barracuda's pink wooden picnic tables is reminiscent of the Keys if you ask me!  Love a hidden little street with no traffic.  I heard they will keep this street closed which is a great idea to me even in 2021!

4. Glass & Vine | Dining in the Park

Tigertail + Mary

2820 McFarlane Road
Coconut Grove, FL 
305 930-8434

Glass & Vine sits on the park and playground which is perfect if you have young kids who love to climb!  Grab a bite, a libation and watch the kiddos play and swing!  Closed due to Covid I am hoping the park opens soon but there is turf to run and scooter!

5. Kush by Spillover | Open Air Patio

Kush by Spillover

2911 Grand Avenue, Suite 400
Coconut Grove, FL 
(305) 456-5723 

Kush once known as Spillover offers the same great bites as Kush Wynwood. Also, Kush has brought back the famous Moose Juice from the Grove's earlier heyday. If your in the know, then you know what that's all about.

6. Redfish Grill | Natural Setting by the Bay

Redfish Grill

9610 Old Cutler Road
Miami, FL 
(305) 668-8788

Always crowded this Matheson Hammock venue is finally open.  I adore the crab cakes, tuna apps and fried fish.  Hello tropical deliciousness. Chef Adrianne takes the flavors up several notches and this is the only waterfront dining in Coral Gables.  Great sunsets and breezes make this dining spot a must try!  Best to get a reservation.
