More New Restaurants to Try in Boca and Delray

Here are even more new venues to put on your list, and when we stop by we’re having dessert first. Just because.

Kasai & Koori, two locations: 25 NE 2nd Ave, Delray Beach; 8784 W Boynton Beach Blvd #104, Boynton Beach; https://kasaiandkoori.com These are two of the planned four venues for the Asian-inspired dessert concept that’s taking the sweet-lovers by storm (and there are savory options, too). 

The owners say this is a North American version of Japanese Kakigori, Taiwanese shaved ice, Taiyaki waffles and Korean Bingsu. Dishes such as the Kakigori Strawberry (pictured above), Pale Mountain (lychee shaved ice, lychee fruit sauce, purple taro crème, lychee fruit stars) are not your run-of-the-mill desserts. And that’s the point. The Spiked Dragon Beard dessert has multiple kinds of flavored ice infused with alcohol. Fort Lauderdale and Pembroke Pines locations are supposed to open soon. 

The Blue Fish, 402 Plaza Real, Boca Raton;561/286-3474; https://www.thebluefishsushi.com: This is the first Florida location in the Blue Fish chain that has 12 venues (so far), with one in Colorado and 11 in Texas. This Japanese company has been around for 20 years, and focuses on fresh sushi, sashimi and rolls as well as offering Asian-inspired dishes. A Naples venue is due to open this year.
