News and Real Estate Trends For Coconut Grove & Coral Gables Luxury Real Estate

Where will you be taking Dad on Father’s Day? June 14th, 2012

Although my kids are grown, and I personally think we should honor our parents every day, not just on a commercial holiday (yes, that goes for Mother’s Day, too), any excuse is a good one to get together with those you love and celebrate being a family, whatever that means for you.  My family and I will probably enjoy a peaceful afternoon on the boat, taking in all the beautiful views Miami’s skyline has to offer.  If you are wondering where to take Dad on June 17th, below is a list I’ve put together of some of my favorite places in the Grove and the Gables, all offering something special for the occasion:

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

2525 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables

Open early at 11:30am to welcome your family with an exceptional brunch menu served until 3pm and specially priced at $34.95, in addition to our regular dining menu.


Villa Mayfair

2901 Florida Avenue, Coconut Grove

“OUI Love Dads!” a la carte or special menu available pick 3 for $28. Invite your dad to a cigar, a toast or a complimentary dessert…


Biltmore Sunday Champagne Brunch (I recommend making reservations!)

1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables

The Biltmore offers one of the country’s most celebrated and lavish Champagne brunches. Offered every Sunday in Fontana’s stunning courtyard, the extravagant buffet features numerous delicacies, such as caviar, smoked salmon, shellfish, carved meats, fresh omelettes, pastas, sushi and more. Brunch culminates with a wall of desserts prepared to perfection by Executive Pastry Chef Olivier Rodriguez. Also featuring live entertainment, the grand Sunday Champagne Brunch combines European flair, Latin exuberance and Miami’s very own tropical style.

Gibraltar at Grove Isle Hotel & Spa

Four Grove Isle Drive, Coconut Grove
