This swank, down-home Coral Gables standout serves up elevated Southern comfort fare, including smoked meats, lots of pork, and one of the largest selections of bourbons and ryes in the state.
“Swine's shrimp and grits come with spiced Florida ¬crustaceans and bits of crisp Virginia ham drowning in a tomato gravy so delicious it merits being sold as a drink. A chubby pork loin, brined in cider and grilled on a wood-burning griddle, rests on a bed of brown-buttered sweet potato mousse. Bourbon-onion jus, smoked pecan praline, and sautéed bitter greens add to the unworldly dish — a platter so balanced you might choose loin over fattier shoulder or ribs on a subsequent visit. Or, more likely, you might order all three. Don't be bashful. Indeed, Swine Southern Table & Wine knows exactly what you want. Not chicharrones or whole hogs roasted underground, but bacon in your dessert and pork in your drink.” – Miami New Times
[On Best Burgers in Miami: Swine Burger] “You’d expect nothing less from a porcine joint named Swine than a patty that blends short rib, brisket, and smoked pork. The Swine burger is the only burger on the menu and all that’s needed. Bacon joins the pig party, while American cheese, Swine special sauce, and homemade dill pickles kick it up an extra notch. For best results, eat it upside down.” – Travel + Leisure
The bi-level, 100-seat loft-like space is – like the fare – rustic, sophisticated and warm. Walls are salvaged barn wood and exposed brick; the furnishings are weighty. Jars of pickled vegetables, bins of fresh produce, and cords of chopped oak (to feed the smoker out back) round out the old farmhouse feel. Two bustling bars, one up and one down, add to the lively din.
