Yolk Boca Raton is Chicago Chain’s first SoFla Venue, and SOBE WFF News

Yolk Citrus Blast Salad

In January 2019, you’ll see Yolk Boca Raton opening just west of I-95 and Yamato Road, at 5570 N. Military Trail. It’s part of the expansion this Chicago-based upscale breakfast/lunch chain is continuing.

The first Yolk opened in 2006 from owner Taki Kastanis, and now it’s an entrenched favorite with more Yolks in downtown Chicago, as well as Dallas and Fort Worth, and Indianapolis.

The menu will feature dishes inspired by the local community here, say the Yolk folks. Yolk Boca Raton will have indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a “coffee bar” and an outside pick-up window for takeout. More info here.

Added to SOBEWFF lineup: Palm Beach Dom Perignon tasting

We thought we were over the moon with a West Palm Beach event added to the 2019 South Beach Wine & Food Festival—that being the dinner at The Regional Kitchen with Chef Lindsay Autry, Chef Clay Conley and Martha Stewart.

Now we can say we’re drinking with the stars—of the universe, that is—with a new event just added: A Dom Perignon wine tasting at Virginia Philip Wine Spirits & Academy on Palm Beach. This is on Feb. 23 from 11 a.m. to noon and the cost is $150 per person.

What does that get you? An amazing array of the famous bubbly: Dom Perignon vintage 2006, 2006 1.5L, 2009, 2009 1.5L, P2 vintage 2000, vintage 2005. Some are limited production; all will taste wonderful. You’ll also learn more about what you’re drinking with the brand’s U.S. Ambassador, Diego Meraviglia. Go here for tickets and more info.
