Motek Coral Gables
We’re not surprised this Eastern Mediterranean restaurant in Coral Gables is a hit. Motek has several locations in Downtown and Aventura (with more on the way)—and we’ve liked all of them. This one on Miracle Mile has a big bar, a large dining room, and outdoor seating. Our favorite dishes are the chicken schnitzel sandwich, mushroom hummus, and arayes burger. But if you’re on a tight lunch break, order any of the cold mezzes—they come out fast, and you’ll make it back in time for the weekly budget meeting. Or come for Happy Hour (weekdays from 3 to 6pm) and listen to coworkers complain about how that meeting should have been an email. It works for a casual family dinner too. Motek is a solid spot for just about any occasion.
