"R House chef and owner Rocco Carulli has had a long-standing love affair with Wynwood dating back to before the neighborhood became a hot spot. His restaurant is a hip place that's half restaurant and half art gallery. Abstract oil paintings hang on slabs that can be moved to change the space's layout. The menu is a trip around the globe, reflective of time spent in Brazil and Carulli's Italian heritage. Try the corvina ceviche, a fresh, peppy mixture of fish, avocado, and corn relish. The braised lamb shank is cooked until practically melting and doused in a fragrant wine reduction accompanied by an herby Israeli couscous."
Magnetic, inspired and original: “R House” is more than just a restaurant, it’s an experience.
Sitting loud and proud in the center of Wynwood, it’s a place that beckons you from the street and quietly seduces the senses once inside. It’s not just about breaking bread, either (although the bread is to die for)…
Instead, it’s a seamless mix of art, food and music with a sexy attitude woven in-between, which coincidentally mirrors the characteristics of the Magic City, especially this week as Art Basel bares down on our majestic mecca.

"Right in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District sits R House—a spot for music, food, and unique art. Come here at night for a craft cocktail, such as Japanese lemonade or a cilantro martini, while enjoying their coveted line up of live djs and entertainment. But perhaps the most enticing part of this neighborhood hangout is the spot’s floating art gallery, curated by White Porch Gallery, which sits inside the venue for patrons to enjoy."
Indulge Miami- Art on a Plate: Five Miami Restaurants Fueled by Artistic Inspiration
"At R House in Wynwood, food, music and art collide. During Art Week only, order the special Paint Palette Pizzetta topped with local mozzarella, Italian parmesan and executive chef-owner Rocco Carulli’s housemade heirloom tomato marinara. Sauces of roasted red pepper, beet purée and arugula pesto are positioned around the pie, allowing Carulli to “paint” them on with brushes.
“I think this is an easy way to taste all the colors of R House,” Carulli said. “Every plate starts as a blank canvas, ready to be decorated by the chef.”"

Miami New Times- Artistic Restaurants Fill South Beach and Wynwood for Art Basel
"It's a Monday afternoon, and R House in Wynwood is quiet. A scant few diners munch on arugula salads and margherita pizzas. But the place is not devoid of color. A painting on one wall shows jellyfish swimming gracefully in an orange sea. Another depicts a field of blush-colored flowers swaying in the wind. And in a third, a glitter-covered white astronaut floats in blue space.
Despite the coffee-chili-rubbed braised short rib ($24) and lamb shank with port reduction ($28) on the menu, R House (2727 NW Second Ave., Miami; 305-576-0201) is more than a restaurant. It is also a gallery..."
