Explore Coral Gables: Talavera Cocina

latin american cuisine

Talavera Cocina is an elegant Coral Cables/Miami-area restaurant named for the stunning Talavera pottery of Mexico. The menu features Latin American cuisine favorites like flautas, guacamole, ceviche, moles, and enchiladas. Mexico is home to seven main regional cuisines, including the North, the North Pacific Coast, the Bajio, the South Pacific Coast, the South, the Gulf, and Central Mexico. The Talavera menu touches upon these localities and offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options -- along with an impressive cocktail menu.

Talavera Cocina appears on Zagat's lists of The Best Mexican Restaurants in Miami and The Best Restaurants in Coral Gables. It is no small feat to be named among the best Latin restaurants in Miami, an area with such a vibrant marketplace for Latin restaurants.

Zagat describes Talavera Cocina as serving "authentic Mexican dishes with a modern twist," which form "the hallmark of this high-end south-of-the-border spot in Coral Gables from the group behind Jaguar Ceviche." Talavera features a great bar, friendly staff members who serve wonderful cocktails and quality meals, and funky decor, all leading to a lively atmosphere!

While you're in Miami, be sure to check out the Art Deco architecture, and beautiful beaches. Art lovers will enjoy visiting the Wynwood neighborhood, comprised of its signature colorful Wynwood Walls murals and open-air museums displaying large sculptural works of art by well-regarded street artists. Tucked among the art you will find craft breweries and gourmet juice and coffee bars, small galleries, and stylish clothing and jewelry boutiques.

For those with some extra days to spare and a desire for off-the-beaten-path travel, you can also grab a cruise to Bimini, a tiny island in the Bahamas. It's quite a comfortable area about an hour off the coast of Miami by ferry. There aren't many cars as folks there walk or drive golf carts and there's hardly enough room or need for larger vehicles. From rustic jewelry shacks to glistening infinity pools, Bimini would make a great side jaunt before or after you enjoy some delicious Latin American cuisine at Talavera!

Talavera Cocina accepts reservations and gift certificates are available for those with a special dinner out or gift-giving on their mind. This exciting area, with its mix of vivid energy and low-key vibes, is not to be missed!
