Swine Southern Table & Bar to Open in Coral Gables

Chef Kenny Gilbert will open Swine Southern Table & Bar.
Run, piggy, run is the phrase we'll be hearing in Coral Gables when Swine Southern Table & Bar opens at 2415 Ponce de Leon Blvd. in the former Les Halles space this fall.

The restaurant will be helmed by Top Chef alum Kenny Gilbert, who is working in the kitchen at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar with fellow Bravo alumni Jeff McInnis.

Gilbert's current title is executive chef at 50 Eggs, which is the creative team behind both Yardbird and Swine.

Gilbert is working on the menu, which will focus on pork items, showcasing heritage-breed hogs and fresh local ingredients.

Though  the menu is still in the planning stages, look out for house-made charcuterie, artisanal sausage, and a "whole hog" concept. There is talk that both restaurants will share some menu items, such as desserts.

Like it's poultry-inspired sister, Swine will feature culinary-driven cocktails, a large selection of seasonal craft beers, an extensive bourbon program, and, of course, wine for the swine.

Chef Gilbert has nearly 20 years of professional experience, and has served as executive chef at The Grill at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, The Lodge at Sea Island, and The Inn at Lost Creek in Telluride.

Clearly, you have not even given the restaurant a chance. Go, eat something, and then pass your judgement.

It will be great to see something back in business at this location. I still miss the original Les Halles (and continued dining there even after its quality had fallen).

WOW!First off, the food at Yardbird Is Awesome (you should actually go and try their food and then critique)

The Chef is actually a James Beard Semifinalist for Best Chef in THe South, Food & Wine Magazine also had him [Jeff Mcinnis] in the running for The People’s Best New Chef 2012., and Yardbird was also nominated for Best New Restaurant when it opened. THese are the people behind this restaurant people. BTW,No Gables Restaurant has achieved this national notoriety and set of accolades so what are you complaining about. No i don't work for them, but I do live in the gables and tired of the crap that opens (and closes). Only gew gems like Ortanique, Hillstone, and few others, have got it right from day one (and not half empty half the time). The Gables is in for a much needed treat! Unless you prefer boxed Mac n Cheese of course!

Here is their site. (not pictures put up by mobile phone)http://runchickenrun.com/

Stupid complaints about a restaurant's name, and valid comments about excessive pricing strike to the heart of why eating in Coral Gables, with some exceptions, is awful.

Seriously though Miami is home to one of the country's most storied black neighborhoods. If you really want some good soul food grab your token black friend and go for an adventure.

The pictures of the food at Yardbird per the links provided (eventually went to their web site too), I'm really surprised, even shocked that place is still open. I hope they do that better at the new restaurant ? The restaurant itself seems nice, but sooner or later you have to order and eat the food.

Has the city approved this name? This wouldn't be a very nice name for a restaurant anywhere, let alone in the city beautiful.

Just saw the menu, save yourself the disappointment and just head over to your favorite bbq restaurant. I really have an issue with any restaurant selling mac & cheese for $ 9. A box of that can't be more than $ 2. I mean who in their right mind would put that crap on their menu ? Nobody goes out to dinner and orders that. It's cheao, feed the kids and fill their stomach food. That's a dish best made & served at home.

You mean cheap processed powdered cheese and dried macaroni is cheaper than homemade macaroni with top quality cheese and ingredients?
