Good morning, party people, time to pop your cherry.
Be the first to visit The Cherry on Top, a new gourmet deli-slash-wine bar opening tomorrow in Coconut Grove. The two-story space is from the folks behind Jake’s.
The glass storefront houses a European-style deli (a la New York’s Dean & Deluca). Shop chocolates, caviar, olive oil, charcuterie, and artisanal cheese — everything from French tomme d’Auvergne to Camembert from a small upstate farm. And, of course, there’s wine galore, including hard-to-find vintages (just ask the owners for that elusive Portuguese Moscatel).
Outside find small tables to sip draft beer. And upstairs, swill wine in a cozy space complete with skylight and tigerwood bar. The cold small plates (salad, meats and cheeses, salmon and tuna tartar) demand repeat business.
And the second time is always better.
The Cherry on Top, 3413 Main Highway, Coconut Grove (305-603-7388 or tcotmiami.com).
