MoBu Opens With Chef’s Tasting Menu, Death or Glory Turns 1

MoBu menu covers special dining needs, hosts chef’s tasting

The recently opened MoBu in Boca Raton is offering a menu that jumps on the allergy- and diet-conscious train, and it is doing that with beautifully plated, creative dishes.

Co-owner/Chef Monique Buchbinder, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, and partner/owner Bruce Schnittman have a small restaurant with a big menu. They offer a nut-free venue, and prepare dishes for those with gluten, vegan and vegetarian requests, as well as meat options. Overall, it’s described as a “seafood-centric” menu, with entrees like the crab-stuffed salmon (pictured). Drinks include beer, wine, sake, sake cocktails and sangria.

Starting April 20, MoBu will have a four-course chef’s tasting menu on a monthly basis. Cost is $95 per person, excluding tax/gratuity, and includes Veuve Du Vernay Brut Champagne or wine. Some dishes include Hamachi sashimi in yuzu ponzu, porcini truffle rubbed prime ribeye or lobster in bite-sized pieces tossed in truffle seafood sauce, plus more. Reservations are required.

On Wine Down Wednesdays, there’s 50 percent off bottles of wine (with some exceptions) and a weekend brunch is served Saturday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 1159 S. Federal Highway, Boca Raton; 561/235-5802.
