Chef/Owner Giorgio Rapicavoli, Owner/Operator Alex Casanova and the rest of the crew at the Coral Gables hotspot Eating House, host two special holiday meals to celebrate Christmas 2016:
Taking place on Christmas Eve is Mañana Buena, a brunch highlighting typical Noche Buena flavors, and enticing tummies on Christmas Day, is Italian Christmas, an indulgent line-up of delicious homemade pastas for dinner.
Noche Buena (literally translated to good night) is the traditional Spanish/Latin American Christmas Eve celebration in which family and friends gather to feast on roasted pig (lechon) and various sides. Channeling his Argentine roots and Miami upbringing, Rapicavoli created Mañana Buena (literally translated as good morning) to put a fun brunch twist on the widely-known custom. On Saturday, December 24, 2016, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., Eating House will offer their usual Wakin-N-Bacon brunch dishes, but will also be serving up their Mañana Buena brunch specials including, Porchetta Pan con Lechon, Vaca Frita Buns, Coquito Pancakes and $5.00 guava mimosas.
On Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, from 6 p.m. -10 p.m., Rapicavoli embraces his Italian roots with Italian Christmas – $16 plates of some of the chef’s favorite homemade Italian pastas and sauces that he used to help mom make weekly as a kid, including Pasta Carbonara, Pasta Pomodoro, Rigatoni Amatricana and Gnocchi a la Gorgonzola. The restaurant’s regular al la carte menu will be also be on offer.
