Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli was the first Miami winner of Food Network’s Chopped. He used the momentum of his win to open a pop-up restaurant on Ponce named Eating House. The concept was so successful that Rapicavoli ended up taking over the space and turning Eating House into a permanent fixture. Recently named on of Forbes’ Top 30 under 30 for Food & Wine, the mouthy chef known for his spot-on flavors, snark, and swagger shows no signs of slowing down
