Happy New Year! I will be staying in Coral Gables for business for the next several weeks Monday thru Thursday. I'm on a per diem and will have about $40 for dinner each night. I am traveling with 2 non-foodie men (think steak and pots) and we eat together about once or twice per week. the other night I blessedly eat on my own and am free to explore the cuisine and town. I'm staying at the Hyatt on Alhambra and looking for walking distance restys that have great food and good atmosphere for about $30-$40 per person. We've been to Tarpon Bend (I say "ew", the guys liked it) and Havana Harry's (pretty good). I walked out of Houston's b/c the hostess was exceptionally rude and seemed annpoyed that I requested a table for one. There seem to be a ton of choices in the Gables and I want to savor every expensed meal that I can! Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
