Beginning Monday, September 2, Eating House, the creation of culinary ‘enfant-terrible’ Giorgio Rapicavoli,  will open for lunch  Monday – Friday, from 11:30a.m. -3 p.m.  Headed-up by sous chef, Adriana “Lip” Egozcue, the quick and casual counter-service menu with an Eating House twist on salads, hearty and healthy sandwiches, tacos,  fun sides and desserts, will change frequently and is geared to to get people in, out and on their way back to work in 30 minutes or less.

On the list: creative Soups and Salads such as chilled corn soup with lime crema, queso cotija and chile de arbol; a tangy young kale salad with ‘Caesar’ vinaigrette, parmesan and ripped croutons; or a ‘bahn mi’ salad with chicken, lettuce, carrot, herbs and nuoc cham.  Sandwiches include the ‘broccoli cheesesteak’ with fontina, charred broccoli and pickled onions; jamón Serrano with ‘pimentón’ cheese, olive oil and heirloom tomato.  The ‘baja’ tacos of the day lists EH selection of seafood or fish with cabbage slaw, roasted lime, and Sra. Lip’s salsa; charred eggplant topped with basil ricotta, pepperonata ‘slaw’ and baby kale;   sausage , served piping hot with roasted onion, chimichurri and  ‘bbq’ potato sticks; and ‘the mista kim’ with bulgogi pork, pickled cucumber, scallion and hoisin. The sides list housemade kale chips and lentil ‘tabouleh’ and for dessert there’s compressed watermelon; ‘WTF’ cookies; a Tierra Nueva chocolate brownie; and Rapicavoli’s infamous dirt cup, served frozen and to go, for one to enjoy back at the office.

Rapicavoli and team will post the current lunch menu daily on their website and have plans to begin delivery in the next few weeks.
