The City of Coral Gables has long enjoyed a reputation as a culinary destination so locals and travelers look forward to the annual CORAL GABLES RESTAURANT WEEK which kicks off with a “Taste of the Gables” party and proceeds for 2 weeks with special menus and discount offers all over town. For one special night, the Westin Colonnade Hotel (180 Aragon Avenue) fills with happy foodies who pay $25 to sample dishes from each restaurant participating in Restaurant Week and vote on their favorites. Proceeds for this popular event benefit the United Way and affiliated local charities.
