Quick Review: Smoke't

Fridays are reserved for lunch with my mother-in-law. I love that I have such a great relationship with her (all is balanced in the world: I don't get along with my mom but I get along fabulously with Alex's) and that I get to enjoy a meal uninterrupted because she can't keep her hands off Cati. Perfect example of this was when we had lunch with Alex's family recently at Smoke't and she had to promise Alex's dad and grandmother that she would keep her hands off the baby for the entire meal. The woman had to sit on her hands and muster every ounce of restraint to make it through the meal. She still carried the baby but not enough to satisfy the craving.
Luckily, our meal at Smoke't was particularly delicious and the food was almost a perfect distraction for someone needing a Cati fix. The calamari was crispy and fresh but what really made this appetizer was the roasted red pepper dipping sauce. The sauce was smooth and made your taste buds jump for joy once the spicy hit.

Their portions are large enough to share. Exhibit A is their fried chicken and mashed potatoes. You get a thigh, wing, drumstick, and breast plus a huge dollop of mashed potatoes and gravy. The chicken was so crispy and comforting; it was Southern food at it's best. And the potatoes? Well, you can't go wrong with them and they will literally make you muse over the greatness of a gravy that isn't brown.

Want your inner child to come out and play? Then you must order the s'mores dessert. Two delectable marshmallow chocolate sandwiches might just make you forget how to share.

If food isn't really your thing (!?!?) Smoke't has a great beer selection and they are proud to show it off in the form of samples.

Smoke't is located at 1450 South Dixie Highway in Coral Gables. Their lunch menu is reasonable priced with the most expensive food item capping at $14.

Steph! Did you know Anth is the souz-chef there? He was probably in the kitchen when you went :)
