Ad Lib

A chef driven restaurant in Coral Gables rooted in authenticity and serving a menu reflecting South Florida seasonality.

The two-floor modern American restaurant - with two bars - takes over the space which used to house Swine Southern Table & Bar. Ad Lib brings an elevated but approachable menu - overseen by owners Jamie DeRosa, the Miami chef behind Izzy’s Fish & Oyster and two-time James Beard Award finalist pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith. The modern American cuisine features wild caught fish and seafood, responsibly sourced meats and local produce from nearby farms and fresh homemade pasta. Cocktails come courtesy from Sam Ross of New York City’s Attaboy - regarded as one of the World's 50 Best Bars.
