Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza heats up Gables dining scene
The Coral Gables dining scene has just gotten a little hotter with the opening of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, 2626 Ponce de Leon Blvd.
The restaurant, which uses coal-burning ovens to create well-done pizza, had a private “friends and family” event Thursday evening, Oct. 18, featuring former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, one of the brand’s equity partners, and CEO Anthony Bruno. It formally opened at lunch time Friday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Mayor Jim Cason and Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Mark Trowbridge alongside the Anthony’s team.
“They say man cannot live on bread alone, but I think he can live on pizza alone,” Mayor Cason said. Mr. Trowbridge presented a proclamation from the Coral Gables Chamber as well.
The Gables venue is the 35th Anthony’s location to open nationally and the sixth in Miami-Dade. It is open 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
