Gary Rack’s latest venture—a farm-to-table restaurant focusing on good-and-good-for-you cooking—is now open in Boca’s Royal Palm Place.

Farmhouse Kitchen (399 S.E. Mizner Blvd., 561/826-2625) goes into the space once home to Rack’s first local eatery, Table 42, and comes on the heels of the smashing success of another farm-to-table, good-and-good-for-you Boca restaurant, Farmer’s Table.
The menu, from Rack’s exec chef Matthew Danaher, features seasonal ingredients prepared with minimal butter, cream and fats, yet flavorful enough to keep customers from feeling like they’re sacrificing dining pleasure on the altar of good health. What that means in your mouth are dishes like spicy Buffalo cauliflower, grilled octopus, nut and seed-crusted chicken and braised beef short rib.
The space itself gets a homey, home-style makeover, with honeycomb-style light fixtures, a wall of house-canned products in mason jars and booths sporting fabrics in soothing blue and green tones.
