Win tickets to Taste of the Gables.
The sixth annual Coral Gables Restaurant Week returns with more than two dozen of Coral Gables finest restaurants offering specially priced prix-fixe menus.

The only problem with this great event? It's gotten too darn big for just one week, so this year, the promotion has expanded to three seven-day bacchanals of good food and great deals. From June 10-30, dine at any one of the participating restaurants for a meal deal, with each eatery offering at least a 20-percent savings off their regular menu. Just make a reservation at any of the participating restaurants and be sure to ask for the special restaurant week menu. For a full list of all participating restaurants, visit coralgablesrestaurantweek.com.

If you like numbers, that comes out to over 20 restaurants offering at least a 20 percent discount in about 20 days. Coincidence? We don't think so.

On Thursday, June 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., the Westin Colonnade Hotel will be filled with good food, good wine, and great music when Coral Gables Restaurant Week kicks off with the fantastic Taste of the Gables, where you can sample food from restaurant week participants and vote for your favorite dish.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door, but Short Order readers can get $5 off an advance general admission purchase by using code MNT by May 31 with your online order.

A limited number of VIP tickets are also available for $50 in advance, $65 at the door (while supplies last). VIP holders will have access to a special VIP "1862 room," where they'll enjoy a Bacardi-hosted open bar, enjoy additional food stations, and take home a fantastic goody bag. (MNT discount not valid for VIP.)

Or, win a pair of tickets right here, right now. Simply use our "comment" feature to share which Coral Gables restaurant you're most excited to try during restaurant week and why. Our favorite answer will win a pair of VIP tickets to Taste of the Gables. A runner up will win a pair of GA tickets. Make sure to register with a valid email address or put your Twitter handle in the comment so we can get in touch with you if you win! We'll announce the winners on Friday, May 24.

I've always wanted to eat at Orthanique's since its menu looks really interesting, besides I love island food, and I've heard here they feature a fusion cuisine inspired on the spicy and tropical caribbean flavors. So I'd love to win tickets to try their creations.

Pick me for Seasons 52;

If I'm chosen, here's what I'll do..

I'll sit down and smile and order the meat

because we all know that's what I like to eat.

I'll down some drink and live merrily 

because I would have finally eaten here if you chose me!

[There's more where that came from ;)  (preciousgreenz@yahoo.com) ]

I've been wanting to try Swine since it opened, as I've only heard good things. But if I had to pick one, I'd with with Ortanique because I've never been and I know its a Gables staple, a local favorite, probably a well kept secret AND I saw it on Check Please, South Florida the other day as well. I've never had a bad experience at a restaurant in the Gables so I'm excited to keep trying them out.

I can't wait to try Sushi Samba! I've never been but, have only heard great things.  I'm so glad a restaurant is finally opening up in that hotel.  I work in the gables and would love to chow down on some sushi.

I would love to try Christy's. My parents who are going to celebrate their 26th anniversary had their first date there. Everytime we drive by it starts with "Remember while we were waiting to be seated they would give us free wine ?" It's part of history in my family and if it wasn't for the free wine, who knows if my mom would have said yes to a second date. If if not, I wouldn't be here to enjoy Coral Gables Restaurant Week :)

I would love to try Seasons 52! With the abundant choices and popular fare, the mere thought of dining on Miracle Mile with a nice cut of meat makes me smile from ear to ear ;) Pick me! preciousgreenz@yahoo.com

Seasons 52! :) Despite being born and raised here, fate has kept me away for one reason or another. Would love to finally discover what this place has to offer! @momma_kay09 or kaydsb1f14@gmail.com

Swine, of course! I love Khong--food, service, and atmosphere--and can't wait to see what the group did in Coral Gables. I went to a plant-based diet last year, but I will cheat on my veggies with the 50 Eggs!

Definitely Swine Southern Table. I love Yardbird on South Beach so i imagine this place must be Great!

I've looking forward to trying out Swine Southern Table and Bar. I work nearby and you can smell the roasting pork in the air all down Ponce de Leon Blvd. It's like a aromatic billboard. They also may have the best domain name ever.
