Eating House Restaurant Review

: Miami native Giorgio Rapicavoli is a young talent who grew up cooking with his Italian mother and grandmother, and learned to grill over wood from his Argentine father. After becoming the first South Florida champion on “Chopped,” he did a stint in Italy working with Alice Waters and Ferran Adrià and then opened Eating House. He embraces the high and the low: brunch choices include beet tartare and heirloom tomato caprese with frozen coconut “cheese” as well as Cap’n Crunch pancakes and chicken and waffles with smoked Vermont maple syrup, candied bacon and spicy ranch dip, best with a Tang mimosa. The evolving dinner menu might include pork cheeks in Mexican Oaxacan mole or lamb vaca frita with sour orange jus. For dessert, try the “dirt cup” served in a clay pot with Nutella mousse and Oreo and pretzel crumbs. A short wine list features a small selection of well-chosen boutique bottles.
