Since opening in 1999 in the heart of historic Coral Gables, Ortanique on the Mile has aimed to provide an all-inclusive culinary experience. Upon entering the family-owned Carribean restaurant, guests are greeted by warm tropical colors — sunset yellow, burnt sienna and rich mahagony — and treated to Chef Cindy Hutson’s award-winning “Cuisine of the Sun” dishes that present the flavor of the tropics. Guests can even take cooking classes with Chef Cindy and learn to make some of her signature dishes. Each course is complemented with wine or champagne and a lesson on food and wine pairing. Students will also take home a gift and a recipe booklet. MUST TRY ORTANIQUE ON THE MILE Cuisine of the Sun To enjoy a full course of tropical flavors, start with Pat’s Caicos Island Conch & Corn Fritters with scallions, Holland and Scotch Bonnet peppers, red onion, Carib Beer and roasted pepper coulis. Then move on to the Red Stripe Beer Steamed Mediterranean Mussels in a spicy Red Stripe broth with shallots, Scotch Bonnet peppers, tomatoes, and Jamaican thyme. Finish with the Homemade Cinnamon Atlantico Rum Cake with crushed pecans, cinnamon crumble, Chantilly cream and rum-soaked raisins. Ortanique is located at 278 Miracle Mile.
