M House Opens in Coral Gables. Monday, July 2, M House will open in downtown Coral Gables, bringing a menu rooted in Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Greek cuisines. The opening comes about six months after the sudden death of chef Alfredo Alvarez, who was in the midst of reviving Coral Gables' beloved Giacosa, known for similar European-inspired fare, by debuting M House. The restaurant has tapped Abraham Silva, who worked with Alvarez at Seasalt & Pepper (now Seaspice) as the restaurant's executive chef. He will honor Alvarez's memory by cooking the same kind of Euro-inspired cuisine. 2524 LeJeune Rd., Coral Gables. Lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m. to midnight, Sunday noon to 10 p.m.
