But no worries! We decided to brave it out and try the brand-spanking-new Eating Place Miami. It's the first pop-up restaurant we've ever been to. Don't know what a pop-up is? Have you heard of a pop-up bookstore? It's like that. No? Well, they come in on a temporary basis, either for some specific purpose (season) or as a test-drive. In this case, it's a test-drive.

Chef/Owner of Eating House Giorgio Rapicavoli.
As far as the service - REMARKABLE.
Seriously, a total delight for the taste buds. I so wish I could share some with you but, honestly, even if I had some sitting in front of me, I don't think I'd bring myself to share. The best you get is a photo essay.
|Roasted Bone Marrow - escargot/black truffle|
ragu, marrow toast, grey salt
|Homestead Tomatoes - lime, ginger, nuoc cham|
(fish sauce), peanuts, frozen coconut milk,

If you're ever in Miami (there are lots of bookish events every year!), you must go visit Giorgio, his roomie and his sister, who provided us with fantabulous service. And you must call me because I will definitely meet you there!
