Antonio Bachour Bakery and Restaurant
The undisputed king of pastries, Antonio Bachour made his mark by perfecting his exquisite creations at leading restaurants in Puerto Rico, New York and Miami, winning all the top awards. Bachour opened his flagship bakery and restaurant in Coral Gables in the spring of 2019. His signature Viennoiserie, Petit Gateux, Bonbons and Macarons are unmatched in terms of form and flavor.
Breakfast favorites include guava and cheese pancakes, Croque Madame, croissant french toast, Eggs Benedict and the Bachour Egg Sandwich. The specialty coffee selection is splendid, along with a custom blended tea.
The all-day menu features arepa fritters, a local burrata, and wagyu sliders. Salads are a specialty, with a standout Seafood Causa Salad — yellow potato causa, soft poached shrimp, tuna salad, salmon ceviche, crispy quinoa. The sandwiches and tartines (chicken curry) make a great lunch selection.
Main dish recommendations from readers include the local deep fried whole fish, a 45-day aged New York strip loin, the slow roasted bone-in short ribs and Beef Bolognese.
Bachour Bakery and Restaurant is located at 2020 Salzedo, open from 7am to 10pm Tuesday to Saturday and until 5pm on Sundays and Mondays. Call 305-203-0552. https://www.antoniobachour.com
Doc B’s Restaurant and Bar
A great place to meet with friends, Doc B’s features an adventurous menu of all-American delights, with a clever wine list, assortments of beers and ciders, and their own signature cocktails. Readers love the candied bacon, chicken and waffle and Chimichurri Steak and Eggs for brunch.
For starters and sharing, try the Iron Skillet Mac & Cheese, Grilled California Artichokes or One Pound Angry Meatball. The Ahi Salad is a favorite and the ten inch pizzas are well done. Burgers are the house specialty, and the steak sandwich is a nice upgrade. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken (entree or sandwich) is a winner. Danish Barbecue Ribs, Dijon Soy Glazed Salmon and Chicken Kebabs round out the menu. Among the Wok Bowls, a Marinated Filet Mignon is hard to beat.
Finish with Rob’s Double Decker Chocolate Cake or the quirky Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cheesecake.
