This massive restaurant on NW Second Avenue is part art gallery, part restaurant, part entertainment venue. Partners Rocco Carulli and Owen Bale have made this space their own and in six years’ time made R House an integral part of its Wynwood neighborhood. The industrial-chic environs serve as a backdrop for the rotating art on the walls and the colorful Latin/Miami-inspired dishes. Carulli, who’s of Italian descent, doesn’t try to compete with abuela’s cooking. Instead, he takes traditional dishes like ropa vieja and makes them his own by braising coffee-rubbed short rib until it’s as tender as a daisy petal. On weekends, R House hosts lively drag brunches that attract an eclectic mix of brides-to-be, couples, friends, and families (yes, this drag brunch manages to be appropriate for savvy kids and still a rollicking good time). New Normal: Ever see a drag queen decked out in rhinestone-studded PPE? You will at an R House drag brunch!
