In the spirit of 4/20, Coral Gables' newest pop-up, Eating House, assembled a stoner-friendly menu of munchies that had crowds lining up around the restaurant. Small bites were offered at only $4.20, including Funyum dip and chips, slow-roasted short ribs with nachos, mac n' cheese that sold out in 30 minutes, and Frosted Flakes dessert.
After we arrived,
it took nearly 25 minutes for our order to be taken after we were seated, The slow pace was truly reflective of holiday spirit.
The energy was balanced, with half of the tables chatting away and the other staring, immersed in the stoner cult flicks playing overhead.
All was forgiven from the messy arrival, once the glourious, stoner-approved appetizers had arrived.
We don't know for sure if these munchie items will be on the main menu, but we did notice close variations are available. Hurry to check this out, because Eating House is only around until the end of this summer. Be sure to check out the weekly 4/20 brunch starting this Sunday. When I asked what will be on the menu, chef and co-owner Giogio Rapacavoli shook his head and said "Well, were just gonna wing it."
