Hillstone

I briefly debated whether or not I should blog about a chain, but this restaurant breaks free of all chain chains. You know what I mean? Located at the heart of Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, Hillstone is a restaurant that features upscale American fare. If you live in Miami, this is a great place to make your favorite.  If you don't live here, then this place is definitely worth the visit.  Now listen, I've been a regular of this place for years. Yes, years. What keeps me coming back is the food.  Service is great, atmosphere is great, but the food has been consistently good.  In the time I've been going, I can probably count on less than one hand, the times the food has been...not exactly at it's best.  That's 3 out of countless meals. That's a great track record people! No one is perfect, but they come pretty close! Plus, aside from the fact that the place runs like a well-oiled machine, one of my other favorite things about this place is that they manage to present you with a great variety of choices, while still keeping a single face menu. Simple and to the point, whatever you choose, you really can't go wrong.  Although, speaking as a regular I can give you some recommendations.  Here goes: Ribs ribs ribs.  If you like ribs, you are gonna love the pork ribs.  Also, there was a time when I was addicted to the beef ribs. Literally addicted (and I don't missuse the word literally either). The burgers are always great, don't miss those. Make sure you try the center cut filet, or the crab cakes! If you feel like starting with a soup, I recommend the tortilla soup.  Like salad? Go with the grilled chicken salad (their peanut dressing is delicious), but my current obsession is the Thai Steak & Noodle Salad.  I'm gonna stop here, but as you can see, I could go on and on.  My best recommendation, however, would be to get out there yourself and actually try it.  One last thing: you will kick yourself if you leave there without trying the tres leches. Best tres leches I have ever tasted.  There. I've said it. I've spoken the truth.  Now, I'm a little hungry. Where should I go?...
