Eating House in Coral Gables, Florida

Every time I drive through Coral Gables, there’s a line out of the door to Eating House. I really want to eat at Eating House, but I want no part of that line.

There was only one way to fix this problem: show up right before they opened and get in there before the madness started. After four visits, 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.

There are a couple of staples that always seem to be on the menu, but my favorite is the Pasta Carbonara. You common food folk might get a little scared of these deconstructed dishes (I originally did), but fret not—the flavor is there big time.

I haven’t hit up the Brunch on Sundays, which all the hipsters…..whoops…I mean, all the “foodies” are raving about. There are 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 knows what time it is: eating time!

National Burger Month Carbonara Burger at Eating House

When I was a kid, I collected G.I. Joe. Sometimes, there was a limited edition figure that you could only get by collecting the little UPCs from the backs of the cardboard they came on. I had to have it.

I wanted to be one of the few “lucky” boys who had this extra special Sgt. Slaughter figure. But guess what happened? I took too long to send them in, and by then, the deal had expired. It taught me a valuable lesson: I dislike the Hasbro Toy Company, just kidding.

What I’m trying to get at is there are only 24 of these Carbonara Burgers at Eating House every Wednesday in May 2013 for National Burger Month. Stop saying you’re gonna go; go and do it to it.

Don’t be the one in your circle of friends who didn’t have one. And the best part is there are no forms to mail in.
