The R in R House stands for Chef/Owner Rocco Carulli, the driving force and culinary/creative director behind one of Miami’s most unique dining establishments. R House is part restaurant, part bar and part art gallery featuring local Miami artists and musical acts. A place where diners, imbibers, art mavens and music lovers come to enjoy a full sensory experience.
Having created an eclectic contemporary American menu offering flavor profiles from across the globe, Rocco opened the doors to R House in January 2014. Within months, R House had received ‘Best Wynwood Restaurant’ awards and appeared as one of the top 16 best new restaurants in the USA on Bravo TV’s ‘Best New Restaurant’. In 2015, the restaurant continued to go from strength to strength. A moment of particular pride from 2015, one of Rocco’s personal recipes receiving Best Margarita in Miami award – no mean feat in a cocktail city like Miami!
Prior to opening R House in Miami, Rocco earned his Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts from the Culinary Institute of America New York and went on to make a name for himself as long-time chef/owner of the highly popular Edwige At Night in Provincetown, Massachusetts on the shores of Cape Cod. With his move to Miami, his culinary and hospitality vision has been wildly expanded. The R House story has only just begun.
