Did you have a good weekend?

Whether you were getting lucky at Lucky Rice, chowing down on Thanksgiving dishes at Top Turkey, or tailgating at the UM vs. FSU game, one thing is for sure: you did a whole lot of eating and drinking.

To wind down, you might want to head to R House for the new lunch. Maybe order a salad because Wednesday Ciopinno at the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne is going all out for the fifth-annual white truffle dinner. Too decadent for you? Head to the Broken Shaker for some drinking and crafting instead.

Week starts now.

Monday

Lunch at R House

R House took up a new meal period, and it includes sandwiches and salads. They're serving the same sweet pea falafel with heirloom tomato and yogurt sauce ($15), as well as Brazilian moqueca (seafood stew) ($17) that they do for the their dinner menu, but they've also added grilled skirt steak salad with fresh mozzarella ($18) and grilled yellow fin tuna sandwich with Asian slaw and wasabi mayo ($14).

Get Your Truffle On at Café Prima Pasta

White truffles. You love them. Café Prima Pasta's got them and built a three-course menu for $60. Dinner starts with a complimentary bellini to help you choose between carpaccio di manzo or asparagus risotto appetizer. It gets tougher with the fettuccini Alfredo topped with an egg yolk and fontina cheese, or polenta and prosciutto. Either dish will be generously topped with shaved white truffles. And to end the evening, crème brulee. That's not topped with white truffles.

 

Wednesday

More White Truffles at Cioppino Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne

In case Tuesday doesn't work out for you, Cioppino at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne will be shaving white truffles a la minute for their fifth-annual five-course wine pairing tasting menu on Wednesday. The intimate dinner is limited to 60 people and costs a steep $240, which sounds about right for truffles and vintage wines. Special guest Fiorenzo Dogliano of Batasiolo SPA winery is bringing with him vertical vintage wines from past decades of the Crus of Barolo, sourced directly from the private library. Along with sommelier Jorge Mendoza, diners will be guided through drinking these wines that will be paired with the earthy flavors of white truffles. Welcome reception starts at 7 p.m. and followed by dinner.

Stitch 'n' Bitch Happy Hour at Broken Shaker

If you like your rum with a side of arts and crafts, then head to the Broken Shaker from 7 to 9 p.m. where you'll be able to get schooled by Karelle Levy (the designer behind knitwear line KRELwear) all whilst sipping on gratis Stolen Rum cocktails. Why would you not?

Winter Dishes at the Federal

Cesar Zapata may be a self-proclaimed pig whisperer, but lately he's really into veggies. With winter on the horizon and the holidays nearing, he's created a new dinner menu that's light on the waistline and wallet. Ranging from $9 to $22, new dishes include Nola-style stuffed crabs (local blue crab stuffed with crawfish mixture), cornmeal crusted lemon pepper calamari dressed with squid ink, chargrilled octopus with smoked marble potato salad, and wild mushroom parpadelle with huitlacoche, corn nage, and mascarpone.
