Every time I drive by that corner in Coral Gables off of 8th Street, there’s a line out of the door to Eating House. I really wanted to eat at Eating House but I wanted no part of that line. There was only one way to fix this problem, show up right before they open and get in there before the madness starts. After 4 vista I’m still following this procedure. Please do not copy me, get your own ideas, or I will elbow you out of the way if I see you, lol

I haven’t hit up the Brunch on Sundays which all the hipsters…..whoops….I mean all the “foodies” are raving about. There’s dishes like the tang mimosas, “bk hash browns”, cap’n crunch pancakes and cuban bread ‘torrejas’. Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli is a Westchester dude like me so he know’s what time it is, comelata time.
