RASCAL HOUSE CLOSING
Just saw this in the Herald. I think it's pathetic. In the next 5 years this area will have almost nothing of its history left. Pretty much the only institution in South Florida will be Joe's.
I went to the one in Boca early this year for some grub and it was shuttered...I guess it was only a matter of time before they closed the original.
Let's just hope these Rogue owners don't close Epicure one day!

you are quasi-correct-o-mundo!
have you ever noticed the little sammy stahl between the cooked food and meat/seafood counter? stingy sized albeit, but at 3.95 they're a real steal! Also, check out the area around the bend from where they make fresh deli sammies, soups, sauces, pop in the oven baked ziti/lazagna and other assorted goodies. the produce can be exorbanant (sic?) but I find it to be of the very best quality and the mixed greens seem like a great deal? the salads to go were reasonable, but just jumped up a buck each...it's still a bargain when you're on the run and again it's top quality...it's definately a convenience factor as I reside on the south side and do not frequent sunny isles, especially now that the 63rd ST. flyover is in rubble.
the thing that scares me about epicure is the meat/seafood dept...almost no prices posted! and you know what they say, "if you got to ask...you can't afford it"!!! That's my dilema dujour every time I walk in there and feel the love at first sight with the assortment of gourmet grub waiting to be loved ala Emeril/netmover's stove-oven. I really think they'd sell a hell of a lot more if people didn't feel the intimadation of having to ask bashfully. Cadillac started sharing their prices in a marketing campaign and their sales shot thru the roof once the people could come to terms with the sticker shock on their own terms without having to ask.
