Ariete feels more Wynwood than Coconut Grove, which is why it’s such a welcome addition to the homogenized neighborhood. The options here should appeal to both your friend who wants something a little more upscale and your friend who’s just starving and ready to stab someone with a fork. For the former, suggest the pan-roasted venison. For the latter, order them the Chug Burger while they’re being grumpy in the bathroom. This place has become Coconut Grove’s best restaurant with some ambitious food, but we love that they still have a frita Cubana on the menu.
