The Boca Raton restaurant scene just got a little more diverse with the opening of Mozart Café (7300 W. Camino Real, 561/367-3412), healthy-kosher eatery in the Fountains Center office and retail complex.
The Boca Mozart is the third such restaurant for proprietor Shimi Avni, who also owns Mozarts in Sunny Isles Beach and Hollywood. The 5,000-square-foot space can seat 140 indoors and out, with a central courtyard boasting water features and footbridges.
Avni consultant Mike Zikri describes the cuisine as “healthy Israeli-Mediterranean fare” that’s “inspired and influenced by modern Israeli cuisine and its casual eating culture,” while helping “expand the boundaries of the kosher dining experience.”
What that means in your mouth is an extensive seven-day breakfast, lunch and dinner menu that begins with everything from the classic continental breakfast to omelets with soy “salami” to something called “shakshuka,” a dish of eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce said to be of North African origin and quite popular in Israel.
Along with a roster of pizzas, pastas and sandwiches are dishes ranging from sesame-crusted tuna and fish ‘n’ chips to salmon shawarma and hummus made with fava beans. Prices are quite reasonable, with most dishes other than full-fledged entrees coming in at $12 or less.
