Town Center at Boca Raton has a new restaurant, but this isn’t your typical mall eatery. The warm color palette with wood and olive-green accents gives it a sleek, contemporary feel, and with a focus on comfort food with an elevated twist, the menu features something for every palate.
The New York City-based concept is bringing its reputation for sophisticated yet approachable dining to Boca. Menu items are recognizable like crispy calamari, grilled octopus, braised short ribs, Atlantic salmon and a selection of pastas, but the twist that chef Chris Barre is putting on each dish will have you coming back again and again to try something new.
The hamachi pizzette, butternut squash fries and bone marrow crab cake are just three appetizers that should definitely hit your table during your visit. Entrées range from chicken and steaks to halibut fish and chips and ahi tuna. Make sure to save room for dessert, Barre’s butter cake will leave you swooning. The restaurant also serves breakfast daily until 3:30 p.m. in case you’re craving eggs benedict or a crafty egg sandwich mid week.
