As if Farmer’s Table (1901 N. Military Trail, Boca Raton, 561/417-5836) couldn’t get any busier or more popular, the healthy-green eatery of Joey Giannuzzi and Mitchell Robbins will pair up with South Florida Food & Wine to next month launch a quintet of guest chefs’ dinners, each focusing a different aspect of the local culinary scene.
