It’s not often we make it out to Coconut Grove, but when we do, Ariete is always one of our first stops. Chef Michael Beltran (ex-Cypress Room) and his New American cuisine are crushing it in the neighborhood, and his lunch menu is quite possibly one of the best deals in town.
As food bloggers, we’re willing to drive for good food. We’ve driven all the way up to West Palm Beach for dinners on occasion, but those meals were worth the trek. Thankfully, Etaru in Hallandale Beach is a lot closer to home. But even if it wasn’t, we’d still drive just about anywhere for a taste of their Japanese robatayaki cuisine.
