Marinas and Dining near Vita Grove Isle

July 14, 2022

From its bayside pool to floodlit tennis courts, the on-site amenities at Vita at Grove Isle are second to none. But the perks don't stop there; the environs of these luxurious Coconut Grove homes are bursting with fabulous offerings, stretching all the way to the water's edge. Here's how to indulge in the high life by way of the local marinas and restaurants.

The Marinas

Nothing quite beats the feeling of being at the helm of your own vessel, and the shores around Grove Isle are bristling with marinas where you can set sail on adventures. Neighboring Vita is Grove Harbour Marina, home to 90 boat slips and a five-star concierge service that'll get your vessel in shipshape condition—whether you're bound for the Bahamas or simply fishing for red drum off the Florida coastline. At Grove Isle Marina, a quiet, secure marina less than a 5-minute stroll from Vita at Grove Isle, you can moor up and—if you're planning a spot of scuba—stock up at the dive shop. On an altogether grander scale is Dinner Key Marina—one of the largest on the East Coast and once the home to the famous flying boats of Pan American Airways. Today, the marina boasts 587 slips and laundry, shuttle, and pump-out boat service—all in a pretty, park-esque setting.

The Restaurants

When culinary adventure calls, Coconut Grove offers a slew of fine dining options. At Los Félix, the one Michelin Star restaurant menu, inspired by Mesoamerican heritage (and the grandmothers, mothers, and “female trailblazers” who embodied that heritage), runs the gamut from a tetela of smoked beets, caramelized onions, tomato gremolata, and grilled oyster mushrooms to an aromatic plate of fish grilled in banana leaves with a hazelnut emulsion. The Miami outpost of Sadelle’s invokes the New York tradition of all-day dining, including comfort foods like grilled cheese, cole slaw, blueberry pancakes, and matzo ball soup, to name just a few, but adds a bit of extra special dining with options like caviar latkes and a full assortment of fish selections that come with capers and a bagel. You can also gorge on the fruits of the sea at Bellini with grilled octopus and langoustine carpaccio antipasti, followed by Chilean sea bass with roasted artichokes and potatoes. Outside is Il Giardino, its lush garden bar, offering live music and Miami's finest crepes. And if you're tempted by the liquid delights of Bellini Bar, have at it; it's a mere 10- minute stroll home to Vita at Grove Isle. One Michelin Star restaurant, Ariete, combines Cuban American heritage and French culinary training to produce some of the area's most tantalizing dishes: start with the smoked oysters with sea urchin butter before moving on to the duck confit on waffles with guava maple syrup. Glass & Vine is nestled in a garden sanctuary by the sea, where Coconut Grove locals come to lose themselves in perfectly cooked local snapper—paired with Mediterranean daiquiris and live Latin jazz.
