Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen Sets March Opening Date for Coral Gables
Chicago-based Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen, known for its selection of flavorful dishes that are all made from scratch, will open its Coral Gables location on March 5, 2018. Coming to the bustling dining and business district of Coral Gables on the corner of Miracle Mile and Salzedo Street, Doc B’s will bring a cool, no-fuss, menu-forward dining experience to locals and visitors. Wrapping the corner of both streets, Doc B’s brings together natural lighting, sleek design and quality food so that diners will feel like they’re in their own kitchen.
“At Doc B’s we want diners to walk away satisfied and blown-away with flavor that leaves you wanting more,” says Craig Bernstein. “We strive to maintain fresh, home-made and consistently good food. Our team created the menu with our own cravings in mind, that’s why the variety and creativity comes through with each item.”
Named after founder Craig Bernstein’s beloved father “Doctor B,” the restaurant launched in Chicago in 2013 and has quickly become a national fan-favorite in just four years. With locations across the United States including Chicago, Texas, and Florida, Coral Gables will be Doc B’s sixth location and the third in Florida.
With each location having its own personality, Doc B’s Coral Gables will set the tone for a casual lunch or a night out for crave-worthy dishes and an approachable glass of wine. Taking center stage will be a 700-degree open-hearth pizza oven and a 900-degree steakhouse broiler for their selections of prime steak or Doc B’s 2 lb. miso-glazed lobster and much more. Menu highlights include a “create your own steak” option allowing guests to choose the type of cut, house-made seasoning, traditional sauce or premium topping such as Jumbo Lump Citrus Crab. Other Coral Gables menu options include the Angry Meatball, a 100 percent Wagyu beef 10-ounce meatball with spicy marinara and the Killer Grilled Shrimp marinated in habanero and cilantro and served over a medley of watermelon, cucumber and Marcana almonds, topped with fresh mint.
The restaurant has been designed to be a vibrant community hang-out for anyone from local business people, visitors or those looking for wonderful evening out. The main dining room is full of warm wood complemented by white marble walls all centered around an inviting and modern open kitchen. A 30-seat bar will create a welcoming atmosphere focused on comfort and will encourage guests to sit for a cocktail or stay for a sophisticated, yet approachable, meal. The restaurant also features artwork by some of Miami’s homegrown artists, further connecting to the community in which it is located. Miami-born and internationally acclaimed artist Alex Mijares’ work will be featured alongside a piece by Gabriel Gimenez (GG) who is one of Miami’s most sought after pop artists. The restaurant's contrasting design elements and vibrant artwork make it intimate and welcoming, maintaining the comfort of a local favorite.
The nationwide crowd-pleasing favorite is certainly Doc B’s daily happy hour, offered from 4pm-6pm and available on weekends. Their exceptional happy hour is another example of how Doc B’s quickly becomes a staple in the community and an instant go-to for after work and weekend gatherings. In Coral Gables, there is a large communal indoor / outdoor high-top table at the store front that seats up to 10 guests - perfect for enjoying their happy hour menu that features large and small bites, spirits, an expansive beer and wine selection and select half-priced specialty cocktails.
