New Restaurant Openings in South Florida

We’re welcoming a few new restaurants onto our dining scene, and they’re bringing us an international selection of cuisines. Choose from Mexican tacos, Chinese dim sum or shareable plates from the Mediterranean. It’s all here and ready for your enjoyment. 

Pagoda Kitchen

There’s a new Chinese concept in west Delray. The legendary Burt Rapoport has teamed up with award-wining chef Bryan S. Emperor to bring dim sum and classic entrées to the Delray Marketplace. Think peking duck, sticky spare ribs, wagyu potstickers, pork belly bao buns, chow mein and imperial fried rice among many other options.

The fourth outpost of the fast-casual taco restaurant has opened in West Palm Beach. The two-story space is serving up cocktails, an extensive tequila and mezcal menu and plenty of delicious tacos like the crispy fish and steak chimichurri along with burritos and bowls.

Prosciutto Soppressata at Moréa

Located at the swanky Paramount, this oceanfront restaurant is embracing Fort Lauderdale’s beach vibe with elevated coastal fare that’s inspired by the Mediterranean. Shareable dishes include roasted oysters, burrata and chilled octopus salad while entrees range from grilled lamb and cavatelli carbonara to roasted branzino and seafood paella.

NYC’s iconic lair has found a new home. Jenny Oz LeRoy, the great-granddaughter of Jack Warner (of Warner Brothers), has reinvented the original concept and brought it south in an effort to blend her life as an equestrian and her love for hospitality together. Sharable snacks include deviled eggs, wagyu steak tartare and oysters Rockefeller. The menu also features a raw bar, pizzas, steaks and a few specialties like The Plum Burger and spaghetti carbonara.
