You’ll remember from my earlier blog that Union 27, opened in October 2018, announced Il Mulino New York would soon take over the venue.

Now Il Mulino New York—which has 10 other locations—has opened at 451 E. Palmetto Park Road and will be a pop-up place through July. It will serve “authentic Abruzzo-inspired cuisine with a focus on Mediterranean seafood” as well as the chain’s signature dishes.

Those include mozzarella caprese, cavatelli rapini e Salsiccia, bucatini All’Amatriciana, truffle ravioli porcini, spaghetti alle vongole and linguine di mare.  Fish and meat dishes also abound, along with some Florida-inspired items such as ceviche, seafood tower and caviar service.

Open daily for dinner; 561/338-8606; ilmulino.com

New York chain Just Salad to open in Boca

Just Salad

More salads, wraps, bowls, and smoothie options will soon be in your sights when the New York-based Just Salad chain opens at 5050 Town Center Circle later this year.

Just Salad is starting its Florida foray with a venue in Gainesville, and then will open more around the state. A Pembroke Pines location will open around the same time as the Boca Raton location, and SoFla will have a total of five at some point.

Just Salad founder Nick Kenner worked with a dietician to develop the recipes offered. Starting in 2006 at 320 Park Ave. in New York City, the venues pack salads in reusable bowls (for $1) and toppings are free with every visit when you bring back your bowl. Along with the made-to-order salads are wraps, warm bowls, avocado toast and more.

The Boca Raton location will have a dining room and patio, so customers can also sit back and relax with their meal.
