Opened in 2016 by one of Miami’s most successful homegrown chefs Giorgio Rapicavoli, Glass & Vine restaurant is a great place to spend the day given its lush location in Coconut Grove’s Peacock Park by the bay.
Providing exceptional hospitality and an enjoyable dining experience, this 200-seat eatery features classic Floridian dishes with a Latin and European influence that results in a dazzling and diverse array of flavors and textures. The gastronomic selections reflect the creativity and passion Chef Rapicavolli who was a season winner on Food Network’s Chopped.
Take advantage of South Florida’s year-round balmy weather, as this is the best place to watch the sunset while dining alfresco. Or spend the weekend enjoying their world famous brunch which is considered to be like “a sophisticated picnic” nestled in a secret garden. A refreshing signature dish is the sweet and spicy Watermelon salad as well made with lima crema, cotija cheese, cilantro and jalapeño. For rich savory brunch options try the carbonara fries with truffle cream, bacon and grana Padano, spicy shrimp cocktail or crab cake benedict. For those with a penchant towards sweet beginnings try the French toast with coconut milk and vanilla maple, or the buttery cornbread with banana, maple and brown sugar. Any option sets the tone to kick of a fantastic weekend.
Open for lunch and dinner and brunch on the weekends. For more information and reservations, please visit http://www.glassandvine.com.
