Boca Raton Recs

Staying near Town Center for a week. Would appreciate any recommendations for mid range cost restaurants within a 15 minute drive. Cuisine is not as important as food quality. An example of a place we like a lot is Marios.

  1. I really like Stir Crazy. I know it's a chain but still pretty good. I also like Mark's in the Park and Max's Grille both in Mizner. The tuna at Mark's is amazing.

      Mark's is fantabulous, but obnoxiously overpriced.

        You are absolutely correct. I had a pork chop with beans and rice for $29. good thing for gift certificates!

      1. The Tin Muffin Cafe on Palmetto (east of US1) is good for food you could get at grandma's. The restaurant is small but they have great specials and you always feel like you're at home when you're eating there. Across the street is an Italian place called Lily's (casual) that is great as well.

          The Tim Muffin is great! Only open for breakfast and lunch, but they have tasty shrimp salad, sandwiches, salads, and amazing little muffins. A cute, casual place.

        2. I've had two delicious and creative meals at Opus 5 in the Boca Center. Moderately priced eateries (and good) is an oxymoron around here. Trattoria Romana is good for Italian. I disagree with Lily's and the Tin Muffin is a good choice, but it is only open for lunch. Great breakfast spot is The Boca Breakfast and Lunch club. You can eat healthy, or you can go wayyyyyy over the top with items like banana/peanut butter stuffed french toast.

          Enjoy your stay

            Munchabunch - where is the Boca Breakfast and Lunch Club? Is that in the Boca Resort where you have to be a member to eat?

            1. re: garifw

              Hey there garifw.......no membership required, just an appetite!!! It's a small place (eat outside) on Mizner Blvd. It's part of the Royal Palm Plaza (f.k.a. the Pink plaza). Does that help?? I just got up and got the menu.....171 S.E. Mizner Blvd.

          2. Cuban Cafe in Boca is wonderful and inexpensive Beer and wine only but the food is superb

              Cuban Cafe was decent, but the best part was bringing my own bottle of wine and they only charged $9 for corkage (not $8 and not $10!!!!!)
