Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli can’t leave anything alone; something about not doctoring a dish or customizing it to reflect his Italian-American background and his Miami roots seemingly go against his nature. But that’s why we like him and his longtime Coral Gables restaurant, Eating House. In the mood for arancini? Try the croquetas made with arborio rice and smoked pork belly—it’s Cuba meets Italy in a crunchy, deep-fried ball. His Sorta Caesar lays it all out, giving you the briny, cheesy flavors with arugula, spinach and watercress as its vessel. The carbonara is about as classic as it gets and even that gets an extra pop of Grana Padano.
