Taurus Beer & Whiskey House has been part of the Coconut Grove scene as long as anyone can remember; truly an iconic spot in one of The 305’s most definitive neighborhoods. For years it has been owned/operated by Ariete Hospitality Group (AHG), part of its growing family of restaurants and bars including Ariete, Navé, Chug’s and The ScapeGoat. Now, the group is excited to announce the renaming and revamping of Taurus Beer & Whiskey House. Now known as The Taurus, the popular pub, treasured for its vast whiskey selection, is shifting its focus to offer guests a more classic dining experience while maintaining its century-old spirited ambiance. Among the changes is a new lunch and dinner menu featuring approachable, flavor-forward dishes sure to please. Offerings include Oysters on the Half Shell; Croquetas; Chicken Wings – ranch dusted, buffalo sauce, celery or Jamal’s lemon pepper; Duck Quesadilla – Duck confit, black bean, cheddar, sour cream; Pastrami Sandwich – Big Marty bun, house pastrami, grain mustard; The Taurus Burger – Big Marty bun, Beltran’s bacon, cheddar, onion ring, house BBQ sauce, fries; The Frita Classic – spicy ketchup, papitas; and an array of pizzas. For a limited time, and with limited availability, guests can enjoy the legendary Proof Burger, served on Wednesdays only. A revamped cocktail program spearheaded by Beverage Director Bobby Gilardi (@champagnebobby) is on the horizon.
The Taurus is adhering to all safety protocols including local ordinances and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control. The establishment has instituted policies including socially-distanced seating with a six-person per table max. Due to The Taurus’s intimate indoor setting, seating is only available outside. In line with Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami protocols to ensure the safety of guests, all employees are required to wear a face mask. Guests are also required to wear a face mask to gain entry. Masks can be removed while seated at the table.
The Taurus is located at 3540 Main Highway in Coconut Grove. The eatery opens at 5 PM Monday through Friday; at Noon Saturday and Sunday. Telephone: (305) 529-6523; New website forthcoming: www.thetauruscoconutgrove.com
