Delivery-Only Restaurants Pop-Up at Eating House

Chef/owner Giorgio Rapicavoli has launched two new virtual restaurant concepts, both based at Eating House's kitchen in Coral Gables. The delivery-only concepts offer specialty burgers and fried chicken, exclusively via Postmates. Bud’s Burgers brings a dozen cleverly named menu items, including the "Shake Your Honey Maker," topped with white cheddar, candied bacon, honey barbecue sauce, and crispy onions; the "Bohemian Radishy," garnished with cucumbers, pickled carrots, hoisin sauce, radishes, cabbage slaw, and cilantro; and the "Bruschetta Bout It," with burrata, tomato sauce, garlic butter, basil, and balsamic glaze. Sides include seasoned fries, seasoned tater tots, and black truffle loaded fries. The other concept, "Clucked Up!" offers a variety of dry-rub buttermilk or Nashville fried-chicken dishes, including wings, sandwiches, chicken and waffles, and two family-style options that feed four people. Order delivery for Bud's Burgers and Clucked Up via Postmates.
