Lion & The Rambler officially opened its doors in June 2022. The arrival of the modern American restaurant is the culmination of a lifelong dream of Chef/Owner Michael Bolen, who designed Lion and The Rambler to be a bastion for technique-driven, detail-oriented cuisine infused with whimsy and served in a cool, laidback space.
Doubling down on his passion for culinary dedication, Bolen will be launching and hosting a special Four-Hands Dinner with none other than local legend, The Wolf of Tacos’ talented Chef Eduardo Lara on Wednesday, July 27. The dynamic duo will be working together in the kitchen to craft delicious and innovative dishes. Priced at $85 per person, this one-of-a-kind experience encompasses six courses plus some surprises. Reservations are open with seatings between 6PM - 8:30PM. The restaurant will not be open for a la carte service the night of the dinner. “Part of the vision for the restaurant was to create a place to collaborate with talented local chefs and artisans,” remarks Bolen, a culinary wiz who handmakes every ingredient that comes out of his kitchen, including vinegars, soy sauce and salt. “I love hosting other chefs and creating an environment where creativity can thrive and different approaches, techniques and tastes can make magic. Selfishly I can participate in that but then we can share that magic with our guests, which is amazing.” Bolen hopes this first Four-Hands Dinner will lead to a series throughout the remainder of 2022.
Lion and The Rambler is located at 804 Ponce De Leon Blvd in Coral Gables. Reservations are available via Resy. Telephone: (305) 603-7612.For more information visit www.lionandtherambler.com/. Follow Lion and The Rambler on social media: Instagram: @lionandtherambler

Coral Gables’ highly-anticipated, creative modern American restaurant has officially opened to the public in June 2022. The brainchild of Chef/Owner Michael Bolen, who described the menu as complex yet seemingly simple modern American or Californian dishes made with hard-to-find ingredients from some of the most esteemed purveyors around the globe. The vibey kitchen and bar features an expansive A La Carte Menu – each dish a playful nod to the nostalgic food of Bolen’s youth. Inspired by South Florida’s local bounty and executed with masterful technique, seasonality is the name of the game at this eclectic eatery. A welcome addition to Coral Gables’ robust culinary roster, Lion and The Rambler pioneers the tasting-counter restaurant format while offering locals and visitors a bespoke and intimate dining experience unlike anything else in town. Reservations can be made through RESY; which can be found on their website; Telephone (305) 603-7612. Images can be viewed HERE.
