Let me tell you, Alberto Cabrera does not disappoint. He is truly one of Miami’s most innovative chefs, having a long and impressive resume, Cabrera has opened up The Local, Bread + Butter and now Little Bread Cuban Sandwich Company is less than three years. The Local Craft Food & Drink was his first solo venture here in Downtown Coral Gables.
Right in the middle of Giralda Avenue behind Miracle Mile, The Local prides itself in being a local pub where you can grab some delicious locally sourced food, choose from 24 unique and rotating craft beers on tap, and also pick from a carefully curated selection of small-batch craft wine and spirits in a warm and inviting environment.
Besides going for the awesome selection of craft beers, and the super cool vibe, people are going to eat the famous “The Burger.” This thing is heaven. Honestly, one of the best burgers I have had. Period. It comes with bacon + brisket blend, American cheese, hot fried onions, sweet relish, and papi’s BBQ. Honestly…it’s so good I can't even talk about it. FYI: This burger is only available until they run out for the day!
For those who aren’t big into meat then you should try their Florida Rock Shrimp, which is rice grits, with charred onions + peppers, country ham, in a red eye broth. Just enough spice to get your night going.
And you have to save room for desert. You have never tasted something like their Chocolate Puddin’. It comes in a small mason jar filled with caramel, Cajun peanuts and marshmallow fluff. You won’t regret it.
