This past weekend hundreds of Miami foodies made their way to Coconut Grove for the annual Great Taste of the Grove Festival. The event was a two day affair where over a dozen restaurants served delicious bites along with musical acts and lots of family fun at Peacock Park. The mild weather gave way to a wonderful weekend of eating and enjoying the best of local cuisine.
The restaurants competed against each other for the coveted ‘Taste’ awards, which included the categories Best Presentation and Best Taste. Panorama located at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel won Best Taste and Jaguar Ceviche received Best Presentation on Saturday. On Sunday, Atchana’s East/West Restaurant in the Mutiny Hotel, won “Best Taste” and was presented the award by WSVN 7’s Belkys Nerey. Guests were able to taste the winning dishes, all priced from $2.00-$8.00 per plate. The cocktails were also flowing and included libations from Bacardi, Madria Sangria, Macallan Whiskey and SX Liquors, among others.
Organized by the Coconut Grove’s Chamber of Commerce this was the Great Taste of the Grove’s 22nd anniversary. We are already looking forward to next year’s event! For a list of restaurants and dining in the Grove, click here: http://www.urbanspoon.com/n/12/1103/Miami/Coconut-Grove-restaurants
