The latest Coconut Grove restaurant news

So there are a bunch of new restaurants under construction around Coconut Grove, but all seem to be moving quite slow in the renovation department.

Three are on the corner of Commodore Plaza and Grand Avenue - "33," the new Peruvian/Asian cuisine place at 3195 Commodore Plaza will be the first to open, they are almost there, if you take a peek inside the door you can see the tables and chairs, along with the bar in the back, are all in place. They tell me they hope to open by mid to late November. It's very orange. The decor, I mean.

Next door, Farinelli 1937, the pizzeria place owned by the Strada people, is still under construction. It is moving quite slowly there.

Goodies at Atchana's.

Across the street at the former FrameWorks location, construction has started on Atchana's. That's right, Atchana's East/West Kitchen will be moving to 3196 Commodore Plaza from their location at the Mutiny Hotel, where they have been since March 2009. They have some of the best food in the Grove, but I never seem to make it to the Mutiny. A few years back, there seemed to be a charity event there at least once a week and I got to enjoy the food then whenever I went to the events. While Atchana's caters various events around the Grove, there is nothing like sitting down to their Pad Thai, egg rolls and Curry Chicken, and those Thai doughnuts! I think I'll be at the new location often. But they have a ways to go, construction has just started.

Harry's Pizzeria, newly opened on McFarlane Road, seems to be the most successful opening in the Grove in a long time. They have added the outdoor tables and pass by any time of day or night and it's quite crowded.  

A new fence has gone up at The Glass House, in preparation for Glasshouse, the new restaurant planned by The Eating House Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli with Grove Hospitality Group.  The contemporary American eatery is on the horizon. But who knows when.

The Spillover, the new seafood place by LoKal, is still under construction at the Mayfair Promenade, every time I peek in the door, it's like nothing is going on, even though I know work is being done. They were planning on opening this past summer, but as usual, the city is holding things up. Speaking of LoKal, they are almost four years old, I remember when they first opened, I was there the night before to get the story, waiting for the perfect burger to come out so I could get the right photo.

Other restaurants are opening around the village, too; I'll give you that news when I have it.

Great update on the new restaurants coming to town but you keep overlooking Choices Cafe that is setting up a vegan/vegetarian restaurant as well as an organic market in the old Masonic Lodge (nee Flavour nightclub) on McFarlane. There is also talk of Sushi Maki going in next to Starbuck's in the Bayshore Landing (Monty's) property. Lots of new dining options for Grove residents.
