Wanting to honor Pope Francis, a TV reporter once gave him empanadas from Rincon Argentino (Argentinean Corner). Today, banner text on the restaurant’s website trumpets his reaction: “Pope Francis enjoyed our empanadas.”
Blocks away from Miracle Mile, this homey Coral Gables eatery, which opened in 1987, does Argentinean cuisine right. The menu is large, so you can feast on milanesas (breaded steaks), barbecue, pastas and, of course, empanadas so good they’re fit for a pope.
