The Dome Gets LEED Luxe Certified
November 01, 2012 | Food & Drink News
The Dome received the LEED Silver certification in August, making it Coral Gables’ first restaurant with that recognition—a testament to founder Rachel Dominguez’s personal commitment to the environment. The restaurant is designed to reduce its carbon footprint wherever possible, from its usage of recycled materials in the décor to offering iPad menus in order to go paperless. Further highlighting this sustainability is the eclectic locavore menu featuring Latin American, Cuban, and Caribbean influences. House favorites include Abuela’s Yuca Croquettas, featuring crispy yuca fingers dressed in a chive cream sauce and topped with caviar, as well as masa frito, a dish of fried pork bites in a homemade citrus garlic mojito sauce. 271 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, 305-648-4999
