Pomagranate in Boca

Anyone know anything about this new place? I noticed it in the JP but all it said was they had a TAPAS menu.

    We enjoyed it. Slow service at times, though very friendly. Pricey but the food was very good. Portions for some dishes were small and they really skimp on vegetables. Overall the best place we've been to in this area.

      I ate there in January when I was visiting Boca from NY. The food was excellent! I highly reccomend it. However, it's not a place for a million kids. It's fancy and by kosher standards upscale. This is definitely reflected in their prices.

          I'm in NYC but that menu looks fantastic to me. Didn't help that I read it on an empty stomach. Somebody in Boca, please go there and report back, and please talk about the food in detail. If it's good, I'll live vicariously through your dinner.

            The NY Post had a piece on the Tapas craze over the weekend and it seems that it is almost entirely pork/ham. I've never had Tapas and don't know how it tastes, but I'm wondering -- would a kosher restaurant be able to effectively simulate the taste with chicken/beef?

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapas

              Tapas are really just little plates. You could easily create a generous selection of tapas while eschewing pork and shellfish, and it could be either dairy or meat. If you have the use of olives, anchovies, tuna, vegetables (including potatoes, asparagus, artichokes) and really good olive oil you could make a decent selection of them.

              That said, this restaurant's menu doesn't seem to have anything to do with tapas.

          Cant' tell you, but I'm sure if you post on the Florida board you'd get some good hits. ;-)

            The kosher board is supposed to be location-agnostic.
