Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli’s new Peacock Park restaurant is a landmark in Coconut Grove’s gastronomic resurgence, filling the decade-long void for a trendy, dinnertime destination. Those familiar with New York’s Tavern on the Green will find Glass & Vine captures a similarly bucolic feel to the Central Park restaurant, but that’s where the park-dining comparisons end. Here, elegance is trumped by a laidback atmosphere that underscores the neighborhood’s aversion to velvet ropes and dress codes—it’s sandals over stilettos, even on weekends. While the ingredients-forward menu of shareable plates, ranging in size from snacks and salads to a 28-ounce bone-in ribeye, focuses on locally sourced produce and components made in-house.
