The online directory for Butcher Block Grill at 7000 W. Camino Real in Boca says “temporarily closed,” but it is permanent. And that’s a good thing, because it allowed a new kosher restaurant to open there this past weekend.
Roadhouse is the brainchild of Owner/Executive Chef Seth Warshaw, also of ETC Steakhouse in Teaneck, N.J. That venue has been operating for 11 years, and Warshaw is known for his culinary vision and creativeness with a kosher kitchen.
This Institute of Culinary Education-trained chef put dishes on the menu such as the Wicked Waffle (sloppy joe, maple bacon, jam), Angel’s Envy (sweet bourbon brisket, scallions, garlic mayo, Alabama white sauce), lower East Side (pastrami, whole wheat sourdough, sauerkraut, pickle, Russian dressing, warm potato salad), the Early Bird (spatchcocked Cornish hen, roasted corn, warm potato salad) and a lot more. It is kosher certified by the ORB.
In Teaneck, he turns out dishes from China, Mexico, the Caribbean and France. He created a version of the pan tarte flambee without dairy. He and a friend founded a company called Rustic Elegance, which designed kosher catered trips in the country’s national parks.
And all of this inventiveness is now here at Roadhouse. Dining will be by reservations for the first two weeks (no walk-ins), as the restaurant gets up and running. There is outdoor dining.
