7 Hometown Dining Faves

Yesterday, we shared our culinary road trip through the state of Florida, featuring some of our favorite restaurants in the Sunshine State. That piece was printed in the January issue of Boca magazine, and we weren’t quite able to squeeze in this sidebar featuring seven great local restaurants. We could never forget about Boca Raton’s great dining options, so here are seven of our hometown favorites.


Arturo’s: 6750 N. Federal Highway, 561/997-7373. This longstanding Boca restaurant is revered for its quiet reserve, its wine cellar and its delectable Italian, including the antipasti cart. https://www.arturosrestaurant.com/

Casa D’Angelo: 171 E. Palmetto Park Road, 561/996-1234. Angelo Elia’s impeccable Italian restaurant is a delight, from the stylish room to the suave service to the expansive wine list, not to mention food that’s by turn elegant and hearty. https://www.casa-d-angelo.com/

Kathy’s Gazebo Café: 4199 N. Federal Highway, 561/395-6033.  This traditional French mainstay in Boca has offered fine French cuisine and elegant service for decades. http://www.kathysgazebo.com/
