Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of tapas and cocktails at Caffe Da Vinci in Bay Harbour Islands.
A selection of toothsome tapas offers solid sustenance at Caffe Da Vinci’s bustling bar, complemented by an ample wine list and a bounty of liquor-infused refreshments. Coronate your visit with a crown of mozzarella cheese sticks ($6.50) and a scepter forged from the thinly sliced swordfish and Wagyu Kobe beef of the duetto di carpaccio (market price), or pad palates with doughy bruschetta al formaggio, crostini bread topped with melted parmesan cheese ($4.50). Skirt steak flanked by chimichurri sauce ($7) faces off against mozzarella caprese with cherry tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and balsamic glaze ($7) in a miniature match of bite-size comestibles.
Clear the air with red, white, or sparkling selections from Caffe Da Vinci’s cellar, or tipple the flavor amalgamations of piquant cocktails. From the fiery Scotch taste notes of a Rusty Nail ($7), to the inflated cost of living in a Manhattan ($6.50), Caffe Da Vinci offers a range of high-end whiskeys, gins, vodkas, and more to conclude a meal or to sanitize bruised fingers as they coddle a drink a little too closely.
- “Large portions” of “solid” Italian fare and a staff “always ready to go out of its way to fulfill special requests” ensure that this “classy”, “upscale” Bay Harbor Islands spot (and sib to Oggi Caffe) is “constantly packed” – Zagat
- Definitely worth the trip to the Bay Harbor Islands. – Gustavo A. L., Yelp, 7/12/09
