Rascal House

Rascal House, photographed in 2005. Closed in 2006. Update: OK, still open, but on its last leg. And the signage is all gone.

    Hi Benjamin,

    Yes, you’re right, Rascal House is not closed. The restaurant is open 7 days week from 8am to 10pm.

    But Rascal House may be closed this time next year. The Sunny Isles City Commission has given the restaurant’s owners, Jerry’s Famous Deli Inc., the go-ahead to level the landmark restaurant and build a 15-story mixed-use project.

    The owners have 1 more year to begin construction.

    Corned beef hash, man, the next best thing to sex.

    Okay, not really all that close, but among foodstuffs it is pretty damned great.

    Closed in 2006.

    The picture is dated 2005. You, obviously, haven’t been by since 2006….

    Great blog post or, should I say, “filler.”

    Fine, it’s filler. And no, I haven’t been by since. I drive by all the time, and the absence of the original signage bums me out.

    The food at Wolfie’s and RH was always good, but I’m not really into the huge-portions-and-prices-to-match aesthetic.

    Well – I ate at the Rascal House on Oct.24th. 2007 and it sure looks like they are ready to close. It was 12:15 PM and there was a total of maybe 20 customers eating. Remember when you had to stand in line and wait for a table.?? I just could not figure it out and the employees are not talking about what went wrong.
