Smokehouse Grille & Wingery has closed its East Boca restaurant in the former Boca Wings & Ribs location on North Federal Highway in preparation for a planned expansion that could include up to three more eateries.
The original Smokehouse, which opened about a year ago, was the first venture of Mark Uffer and Erik Frasco, who installed custom-made smokers and promised authentic American barbecue to cue-challented NoSoFla diners.
The pair recently opened a much larger and better appointed Smokehouse on Yamato Road at State Route 7 in Boca, which will serve as a prototype for Smokehouses to come. Though no firm deals have been announced, the restaurantâ€™s representatives said that locations on PGA Boulevard and in Kendall and Pembroke Pines are currently being considered.
Stay tuned for further details.
