Sushi by Bou Brings 1920s to Boca

My recent multi-sensory experience at the newest Sushi by Bou in the heart of downtown Boca Raton compelled me to once again highlight this dining concept where the interior decor is a key component to serving up traditional omakase in a non-intimidating environment. The Royal Palm Place location, previously home to popular Alley Cat, underwent a complete renovation worth noting.  

As I’m not Boca magazine’s official expert food writer, I won’t dive into each delectable bite, but let it be known that each dish was absolutely divine, showcasing fish freshly flown in from Japan. Especially after a long week, there is something very nice about going to a restaurant and not having to make any more decisions. Plus, you’re in good hands because Chef Moon and his team of sushi chefs are genuinely passionate about creating the most delicious omakase experience. 

Sushi by Bou’s Boca Raton location is intimate, sexy, and glam. Having been inspired by the 1920s art deco era, “Think big architectural features, stone and polished finishes,” says Director of Design Humberto De Andrade. De Andrade is instrumental in the creative process along with Sushi by Bou partner and CEO Erika London. London shares, “Our unique and intimate dining experience is designed to engage all the senses which is why we carefully curate every aspect of the experience. Sushi by Bou isn’t just incredible sushi, it invigorates all of your senses and keeps you coming back for more.”

The color scheme is dark and sultry, a perfect place to escape. A full length mirror etched with the saying “A little party never killed nobody” invites guests to relax and let go of their worries. Wood paneling on the ceilings add warmth along with the richly textured dark navy curtains. To break up the darker tones, a beautiful shade of green is incorporated via the sushi bar’s seats, tiling and even lighting. Vintage images adorn the walls above to further tie in the 1920s, an ode to a bygone era that was very special in our local history. Boca Raton was officially incorporated, Addison Mizner came down from Palm Beach to make his architectural mark, and The Boca Raton was built, just to name a few of those historical highlights.

The minute you enter Sushi by Bou, you could literally be in any fabulous city. It’s got Paris chic vibes, New York City’s edginess, and Tokyo’s vibrancy. Yes, we love Boca Raton’s sunny and casual lifestyle, but Sushi by Bou brings city energy for a quick change of scenery.
