Is downtown Delray becoming South Beachified? Or maybe Hamptonized?
Could be, with word that Southhampton’s swanky celeb-magnet 75 Main,which has attracted the likes of Howard Stern, Jodie Foster, Pierce Brosnan and assorted Real Housewives, will be opening a second branch in the old Cugini Grille location on Atlantic Avenue. No idea on the expected debut date, though a planned mid-March open is obviously not going to happen.
Other details are pretty sketchy too, but 75 Main Delray will reportedly take up 4,600 square feet and seat 180 inside and another 40 hungry partiers outdoors. The Mediterranean-esque menu doesn’t break any culinary ground, but it does offer such upscale treats as hamachi tartare with sea urchin foam, butter-poached lobster with cardamom-scented lobster “cappuchino,” and dry-aged New York strip with choice of sauce and sides.
I’m going to root around for more details so check back soon.
