It's the end of an era at the Genuine Hospitality Group, where it has been just announced that pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith will be leaving the empire she helped build with chef Michael Schwartz to relocate to Los Angeles with her wife, Heidi Ladell, who is expanding her events branding company out there.

The announcement, pun perhaps intended, was most definitely a bittersweet one. As for where, specifically Goldsmith is landing in LA, that's to be determined.  A rep for Goldsmith tells us that "she wants to learn the market as LA is a huge, burgeoning food town." An official Genuine Hospitality email said "While we all wish Hedy and Heidi the very best in California, we want them to know that they will be dearly missed here in Miami and specifically at The Genuine Hospitality Group."

"We're all jealous because we all love LA, " Schwartz told us. "I personally as a chef would not be where I am today without Hedy Goldsmith. She pushed me, inspired me and motivated me. I just tried to keep up with her. We're gonna miss her to death.

Owners Giorgio Rapicavoli and Alex Casanova Announce Sale of MiMo Location with a New Home on the Horizon for the Modern Spanish Tapas Restaurant

 Owners Giorgio Rapicavoli and Alex Casanova announce the immediate sale and closure of Taperia Raca, the bohemian Spanish tapas restaurant and wine bar, open since March 2014 in Miami’s MiMo district at 7010 Biscayne Boulevard. The duo are already looking for a new home for the popular eatery.

“We simply received an offer for the location that we could not turn down,” explains Casanova about the sudden turn of events. “ Taperia Raca’s recently appointed chef de cuisine Michelle Saavedra, will take her talents over to sister restaurant Eating House to head up lunch, and eventually dinner service, while Eating House chef de cuisine Adriana Egozcue and Rapicavoli work on their next big thing, likely launching early next year. Much of the remaining Raca crew, who originally hailed from Eating House, will return to the Shake and Bake Hospitality’s flagship restaurant as well.

Also noteworthy, but completely unrelated, Eating House will be closed for two weeks this fall, from Monday, October 20 – Sunday, November 2, 2014, and will open back up for lunch service, Monday, November 3, 2014.“Eating House is getting a little work done,” states Rapicavoli about the temporary closure, “and we thought it a great chance to give staff some well-deserved time off.”

Eating House, located at 804 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables, Florida, is open for lunch Monday- Friday, from 11-3 p.m.; dinner Tuesday throughThursday, from 6pm – 11pmFriday and Saturday, from 6pm - midnight and forSunday brunch from noon – 5 p.m. Telephone:  305.448.6524 www.eatinghousemiami.com
