For those of you who already miss chef Giorgio Rapicavoli's Eating House, dry those tears and clear your calendars, because Rapicavoli and partner Alex Cassanova have just announced that the insanely popular pop-up will pop up again at the same location Friday, August 17.
The pop-up will stay open through early October, at which time the duo will take a break with a culinary tour of Italy.
While the two are making the rounds in Europe, the restaurant space at
Café Ponce will undergo renovations, just in time for a grand -- and
permanent -- reopening of Eating House in November.
"We've come to
love our intimate little home and are so thrilled to have taken over for
the tenants," Rapicavoli says.
The permanent version of Eating House
will serve both lunch and dinner. Though the format and structure will
remain similar to the current formula that has been working well for the
young chef, expect to see some new flavors and creations inspired by
his Italian tour.
