The Canarias, also known as the Coral, are the best-known of Miami’s iconic canary restaurants.
The restaurant’s name derives from a nickname for the birds that have lived at the canary ponds in the city for over a century.
The birds have also been known to be a symbol of Miami.
In Miami’s downtown area, the canaries are also known for their popular downtown-themed restaurant, the Canariat.
But there is a difference between the canariases and the Coral.
While both the Coral and the Canarisas are still in business, the Coral is owned by the city and can be seen in the downtown area.
The Canarisa is owned and operated by a group of Miami businesses, the Miami Development Corporation.
