Welcome To:

Cacao Restaurant

While the name of this classy establishment in the trendy restaurant row of Giralda in downtown Coral Gables may invoke visions of a Wonka chocolate fountain it will be the sweetness that ultimately lingers. In fact, until you hit the dessert menu you won't find much of a cacao influence at all -- and that's not a bad thing here.

The glass-encased wine cellar may inspire you to dig deep into the eatery's wide wine list while the ceviche bar may prompt you for a fishy appetizer before you dabble into a menu with South American comfort food with artsy Miamian twists.

From a hearty Venezuelan chicken chupe to a juicy suckling pig, even before the chocolate -- and non-chocolate -- desserts enter the picture you will feel the sweetness of Cacao.
