Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli puts a fun twist on upscale dining at Eating House, a rustic eatery at the edge of ritzy Coral Gables. Dishes veer from the ordinary, like the meaty cauliflower steak or seemingly straightforward mushrooms, which give forth an explosion of earthy flavors. At brunch, Rapicavoli’s take on eggs Benedict skews swanky thanks to a black truffle topping while the French toast speaks to the city’s Latin influences, subbing in Cuban bread for brioche and guava and Iron Beer for maple syrup.
Time Out tip: Dining with small children? Take your brood to brunch for Eating House’s signature Cap'n Crunch pancakes, dirt cups and Tang—which grownups can order to flavor their mimosa. Heads-up: Once a year, Eating House features a special, eight-course 4/20 menu for just $42.
