The Grove...


It’s what the locals call Coconut Grove, one of the hippest, most energetic corners of South Florida. In the early 1900’s, several wealthy visitors built spectacular homes on or near Coconut Grove’s bayfront, creating a “millionaire’s row.” A community of independent-minded and creative types


like writers, Marjorie Stoneman Douglas and Tennessee Williams, as well as many of the area’s most accomplished writ- ers and musicians were attracted to The Grove. It continued to flourish as the seat of South Florida’s Bohemian life with coffee houses, boutique art galleries and head shops. Even now, with the ongoing development of million dol-


lar condos, Coconut Grove manages to keep its uniqueness, along with its acceptance of a wide array of viewpoints and lifestyles. “I lived here 40 years ago, and could not wait to get back. I love living in Coconut Grove,” said Liz Rose, who along with her husband Paul Rose, also have a home in Tampa’s Harbour Island. LIZ’S DINING RECOMMENDATIONS: LoKal Burgers and Beer is all about food that is local and


sustainable, from the produce to the proteins to the power. It is the only restaurant in Miami to be powered exclusively by clean wind and solar powered by Pear Energy. Their Doggy Menu has three meal options and features non-alcoholic beer for the dis- cerning canine. Fresh water and complimentary doggy biscuits are immediately served. LokalMiami.com.


LULU is a vision of what an outdoor sidewalk restaurant


should be. This is a funky neighborhood joint with a sophisti- cated vibe going for it. Truffle Risotto Croquettes, Fried Green Tomatos, and the LULU Burger (yes, all for human consump- tion only). There are also some nice vegetarian options on the menu. LuluInTheGrove.com TK’s at the Villa Mayfair. “We just discovered this place a few weeks ago. The food is


just phenomenal,” said Liz. Located inside the Mayfair Hotel (yes, it is dog friendly) the atmosphere goes from a casual lunch to a romantic evening ambience. TK’s has become “the place” in The Grove. TKsVillaMayfair.com.
