A little more info on Dandelion, the health-oriented Middle Eastern “fast casual” eatery that made its debut last Friday in Boca’s Town Center shopping mall. It’s a sister restaurant to the mall’s just-opened Butcher & the Burger, another DIY diner by Chicagoan Allen Sternweiler.
The concept is the same, only the ingredients and cuisine have changed. At Dandelion you choose your protein delivery system (pita, flatbread roll or over greens), your protein (chicken, steak, fish, grilled veggies, lamb gyro and daily gyro special), then your various toppings (from cucumber and tomato to tzatziki and honey-mustard dressing).
There’s also a small selection of soups, salads and sides, with choices like chicken soup with rice, lemon and egg; rice and feta-stuffed grape leaves; baked cottage fries with lemon, oregano and olive oil; and your basic Greek salad. Also look for olive oil-roasted chicken and a daily pasta special.
