Most Miamians reserve a trip to Coral Gables for work, preferring to head to hipper neighborhoods like Wynwood and Miami Beach for their weekend jaunts. But discounting Coral Gables is a mistake, because it means you miss out on a place that serves the best local flavor. The Local Craft Food & Drink doesn't feel like your average Miami restaurant — instead of pretentiousness, it goes for an intimate pub vibe. Discover unconventional plates like roasted bone marrow with Zak the Baker bread, and pair them with one of 18 small-batch brews or a cocktail like the No Country for Old Cosmos (Ketel One, house-made cranberry-rosemary reduction, orange and lime). Cheers to seasonal, local menus.


The Local Craft Food & Drink, a food and beer joint.
Because everyone should try bone marrow at least once.
