In case you missed it, Eating House 2.0 is now open on Giralda. This revamped version features a full bar and the beloved quirky food mash-ups that have captured your heart over the past decade. Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli has grown and evolved, and it’s evident in the new menu offerings. Prepare to indulge in dishes like Yellowfin Tuna Crudo with black truffle leche de tigre, twice-cooked Cauliflower with lime ‘beurre blanc,’ and an updated version of the classic Carbonara with a truffle twist. While we’re excited about the new menu, we understand the sentimental value of your first visit to Eating House. That’s why they’ve introduced the Tasting Miami Menu, which allows you to relive that memorable experience from the original Ponce location.
The Tasting Miami menu pays homage to the original Eating House concept and evokes the same indulgent feeling you had when you first stepped into the old cozy dining room while at the same time, it pays respect to legendary Miami eateries. Available from Tuesday to Thursday, this five-course menu is priced at $59 per person.
So what’s on the menu? Let’s take a culinary journey. We begin by paying our respects to Christy’s with Rapicavoli’s twist on a classic: Wagyu Beef Tartare tossed in Caesar dressing. Next, we bring you a taste of Sports Grill, Eating House style with seasoned Grilled Carrots. Trust, once you try these carrots you won’t miss the waffle fries with cheese for one second.
As you progress through the menu, you’ll notice Chef’s deep knowledge of Miami’s iconic spots. He pays homage to legendary establishments like Tropical Chinese and Casa Larios. Another highlight is the Pincho Man, inspired by one of Miami’s original food trucks located off the Palmetto Expressway in Hialeah. This dish is a short rib “Pincho” with gruyere, mojo, and crisped potatoes.
What’s a visit to Eating House without dessert? Take a trip west on the Palmetto to Westchester and indulge in the Palace 18, featuring Cry Baby Creamery popcorn ice cream, butter and meringue. Alternatively, try our personal favorite, the Versailles. These Potato Buñuelos are accompanied by a cafe con leche condensada that one of our tablemates may have drank as a shot. We didn’t blame him. It was that good.
Keep in mind that the Tasting Miami menu rotates monthly, so make sure to visit soon to savor these dishes before the new lineup arrives. Don’t miss the opportunity to embark on a playful and nostalgic culinary journey while paying homage to Miami’s legendary spots that only true enthusiasts know and love. We love a throwback! Tang mimosa, anyone?
