Chef/Owner Giorgio Rapicavoli and the rest of the Eating House posse are once again hosting their anticipated 4:20 Dinner, held Monday, April 20, from 6:30 p.m.—11:00 p.m.
The celebration, which is an ode to the pot smokers holiday featuring a cravable$42.0 themed menu (excluding tax and gratuity,) $4.20 drink specials and stoner music and movies on constant rotation, is uber popular with Eating House regulars and Rapicavoli fans, nearly selling out this year only hours after an Instagram announcement. A handful of lucky revelers can still lock in their seats, and those who miss the gravy train can be added to the official waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Opened February 2012, chef/owner Giorgio Rapicavoli’s Eating House popped onto the Miami dining scene and into food lovers’ hearts almost instantaneously. A pop-up concept with a proposed six-month reign, serving dinner and Sunday brunch out of an existing diner-style restaurant, the eatery quickly became a hotspot, drawing lines of eager foodies, pleased critics and impressed fellow chefs. Rapicavoli packed the house nightly with fans chomping at the bits for a taste of his whimsical, creative and fresh fare, served in a bustling little room with a hip, underground feel. At the end of July 2012, the city mourned as Eating House popped down, but rumors of a possible permanent location were ever-looming. Only weeks later, Eating House announced that they were purchasing Café Ponce and would pop back up for a several week stint before closing to remodel and open as a permanent location in November 2013.
Eating House, located at 804 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables, Florida, is open for lunch Monday- Friday, from 11-3 p.m.; dinner Tuesday through Thursday, from 6pm – 11pm; Friday and Saturday, from 6pm – midnight and forSunday brunch from noon – 5 p.m. Telephone: 305.448.6524 www.eatinghousemiami.com
