MIAMI, FL – April 5, 2022 — A bold new restaurant and bar concept has arrived in the heart of Coral Gables, inviting diners to eat outside the box and experience its daring fusion of Pan-Latin cuisines in a vibrant, warm and energizing indoor-outdoor space.

Whether through its cuisine, its cocktail program or its hospitality, Ecléctico is a concept that strives to live up to its name and embody an authentic, adventurous way of life. Inspired by the art that’s all around us and the diverse Latin cultures represented in Miami, the exciting new concept opened in June of 2021 and has been serving up its refreshing blend of rich flavors and welcoming service ever since.
Open daily for lunch and dinner, Ecléctico’s menu of small and medium-sized dishes is designed to be shared, allowing guests an affordable culinary tour of its delicious Pan-Latin offerings. Highlights include the Forbidden Rice (featuring a black lotus rice base tossed with lobster, shrimp, scallops, octopus and maduros in a sofrito sauce) and the Croqueta Coqueta (a vegan croqueta made with spinach, sofrito and coconut milk and topped with habanero crystals). From the Tacositos menu, guests can select from a variety of fresh seafood platters served with toppings and sauces to customize each bite. All sauces, tortillas and seasonings are made fresh and by hand, and the menu is 95% gluten-free.
During weekend brunch, Mexican breakfast classics like Chill, Aquiles! (poached eggs, queso fresco, avocado, red onion, crispy tortilla, cilantro, jalepeño, black pepper crema) and Rancho Taquiza (8oz churrasco, poached eggs, chipotle tomato sauce, crispy Kennebec potato, avocado, red onion, corn tortilla, black pepper crema) are given the Ecléctico twist, joined by other familiar and cravable hits like the Waffly Wedded Wife (thick-cut two day house cured pork belly bacon steak and from-scratch waffles) and So Burritoful (green chicken, cilantro
rice, enchilada sauce, cheese sauce, guacamole, nata). Guests have the option of adding on bottomless mimosas, bottomless bellinis or a carafe of sangria to their meal for just $25 while jamming out to live eclectic music on the patio from 12pm to 3pm.
