What is it? A smashing success. Bulla’s bar, dining rooms and upstairs event space have been permanently packed since the Spanish restaurant came on the scene in 2013. It’s since expanded to a second location in Doral.
Why go? Gourmet tapas and craft cocktails served in a buzzy, trendy environment all about sums up Bulla. And who doesn’t like that? Happy hour is quite the scene—brace for a well-dressed crowd spilling out onto the streets of Coral Gables.
Small plates are a big hit with Miamians. Something to do with the year-round pressure to be swimsuit-ready, perhaps? Or do tapas just pair better with Miami happy hour deals (another roaring success in this city) than, say, the best burgers in Miami? Whatever motivates locals to nibble at mealtime, the best Spanish restaurants in Miami satisfy cravings for snack-size portions and Spanish-skewed cocktails. Hungry for Iberian classics? Settle in for a night of paella, tortilla and more.
