BAY VIEW SPRITZ – Fos Greek Mastitha , House Citrus,
Mint, Prosecco
Cocktails are not included, but, you know you want one! The Bay View Spritz goes nicely with the refreshing summer menu.

CHARRED CAULIFLOWER – HERBED TAHINI
CRISPY CHICKPEA

The meal is off to a great start with this creamy cauliflower dish. The rich tahini complements the flavorful charred cauliflower and the crispy chickpeas bring a nice crunchy texture to the dish.

CILANTRO, JALAPEÑO

Can’t go wrong with some fresh heirloom tomatoes!

The Watermeon Stracciatella was definitely one of my favorite dishes of the night. Feta and mint with watermelon is so 2 years ago! Lol. But seriously this was great.

GRILLED SWEET CORN – LIME CREMA
QUESO COTIJA

Just… yes. I love Mexican street corn and this one is a winner. Nice touch with the shaved lime zest on top!

HOUSEMADE SEMOLINA PASTA –
GREEN PEA PESTO, BREADCRUMBS

Ok, now THIS was my other favorite dish of the evening. Everything about this dish was amazing from the texture of the homemade pasta to the pesto, cheese and pistachios on top.

f

LOBSTER TARTINE – BRIOCHE, LEMON YOGURT, BROWN BUTTER AND CELERY
Not included in the summer veggie special, but worth sharing for the table as an added treat. The yogurt makes you think you’re eating a traditional lobster roll, but really it’s a bit of a healthier spin. I like the shaved celery garnish, another nice finishing touch.

g

GUAVA BREAD PUDDING – CREAM CHEESE
ICE CREAM, TOASTED COCONUT

Yes, of course dessert is included! The bread pudding was DELISH! Although, it was more like french toast to me than a bread pudding.

Catch this summer special before it’s gone at the end of September!

In addition to the unique veggie options, diners can enjoy Happier Hour every weekday from 2PM to 7PM. Chill out with half-off all wines by the glass, $5 beers, and $8 specialty cocktails.

Glass & Vine, owned and operated by Grove Bay Hospitality Group, is located at 2820 McFarlane Road in Coconut Grove.  Website: http://www.glassandvine.com/
