Staff Picks: European and Asian cuisine

The Little Chalet

Picked by Nancy Kumpulainen, Art Director

“Looking for a trip to the Swiss Alps without leaving Boca? You have to check out The Little Chalet, a prime steakhouse and fondue restaurant with European flair. They have a vast selection of gourmet fondues, prime steak and seafood offerings and exceptional service. I love the ambiance with cozy dining nooks throughout and a fireplace and piano player for a romantic experience. My favorite dishes I tried were the black truffle burrata , white truffle creamed spinach (obviously if there’s truffle on the menu, I have to order it), almond crusted sea bass and the wild mushroom cheese fondue! Oh, but don’t forget the chocolate fondues that include chocolate s’mores and Lindt white chocolate with almonds served with a variety of scrumptious wafers and fruits! This restaurant is the perfect choice for any special occasion, and you may actually forget that you’re in Florida while you’re there!”

Japango

“If you’re a sushi fanatic like I am, you need to head over to Japango. The menu is stacked with unique and delicious sushi, Thai cuisine and endless appetizer options. The spicy tuna crispy rice (pictured) is a must-try, and the toro sashimi roll is my absolute favorite. It doesn’t even have rice or seaweed, but it’s incredible. I go to the one in Parkland (at least once per week), but there are also Boca and Delray locations.”
