With its open floor plan and kitchen, chic industrial interior and romantic garden patio, Ariete is a willing date night spot in Coconut Grove. Not to mention executive chef Michael Beltran’s unique menu of innovative and shareable farmhouse cuisine, which speaks to adventurous eaters and comfort food lovers alike.
During the summer months, guests can enjoy $2 fritas on Tuesdays, 15 percent off their bill on Wednesdays (with proof of Coconut Grove residency), and a $45 prime rib dinner on Thursdays, served with a side of potatoes, two glasses of wine, and beignets for dessert. Happy hour runs Tuesday-Friday from 4-7 p.m. and features $8 beers, $10 cocktails and menu items for $10 or less.
Something to sip
You don’t have to be a House of Cards fan to enjoy Ariete’s F. Underwood, made with High West double rye whiskey, Noilly Pratt extra dry gin, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, angostura bitters and a maraschino cherry.
If you’re a mezcal lover, the J.O. blends Montelobos mezcal, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, green Chartreuse liqueur, lime juice, jalapeno and rosemary for a sweet, smoky, and spicy finish. Fans of the classics can opt for the Chug Old Fashioned, crafted with a twist using tobacco-maple syrup, sour orange bitters, and Old Forester bourbon.
