Why let Emeril Lagasse and Anthony Bourdain have all the fun judging on Top Chef?
If you watch enough Food Network to step into their shoes, come next week you'll have your chance at Taste of the Gables.
The event goes down at the Westin, where restaurant test tables line the way and dishes from Ortanique on the Mile and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse will limber up your taste buds.
Let your palate do the fist-pumping while a live DJ spins background music as you determine the winner among 20 restaurants competing for the Best Table of the Gables award.
Be sure to opt for VIP stubs so you'll have full access to the exclusive “1862 Room" with even more live music, wine tastings, and food stations for high-end Gables gorging.
Just save room for the official Coral Gables Restaurant Week, kicking off June 4-17 with discounted three-course menus from Miracle Mile’s own Cibo Wine Bar, Seasons 52, and The Local.
Yeah, that's a lot of eating out. We'll queue up some brown bag ideas for July.
