The Foodie Revolution Takes Over Coral Gables

Post Author



In the age of airy, open concept designer kitchens as the central hub of home entertaining, it is no wonder that two architectural trends have emerged– the rise of the super pantry and real estate centered around foodie culture.  I have witnessed this growing demand among my own luxury clientele and as reported by the Wall Street Journal, these trends are quickly increasing among the affluent.

Take for instance the Dennis Carvajal Group’s exclusive listing at 601 Leucadendra Drive. While this breathtaking home in prestigious Gables Estates features a magnificent kitchen and conveniently sized pantry, it is also mere minutes from some of the hottest restaurants in town. Once known for more traditional dining experiences, Coral Gables has responded to the demand among its trendy, luxury residents with newer, sleek restaurants with inventive food and beverage options. Palme d’Or, for example, the top rated restaurant located in the The Biltmore Hotel boasts internationally recognized Gregory Pugin as the Chef de Cuisine while nearby celebrated chef Pascal Oudin runs the acclaimed Pascal’s on Ponce. Other hotspots include the hip Bulla Gastrobar or the Eating House, where foodies from around Miami flock for a taste of the chef’s Cap’n Crunch Pancakes and mimosas. With one of the best farmer’s markets in the city, Coral Gables residents have easy access to fresh, local produce for those who insist on cooking with the best ingredients in their own homes. My listing at 10 Edgewater in Coral Gables offers the industrial kitchen of every foodie’s dream with an oversized hood and island  just made for those who treasure creating culinary delights.

“The Foodie Revolution” and its reshaping of the real estate landscape is evident in the high demand of gourmet kitchens, sizable pantries and novel eateries that are popping up throughout Coral Gables. Peruse The Dennis Carvajal Group exclusive listings and contact me to learn more about my listings with such amenities.
