dining in Boca

Hello, everyone.

We are New Yorkers who regularly visit my parents in Boca Raton and eat very, very badly when we do. Please help! What are your favorite restaurants in the neighborhood? Cuisine, price, and portion size are not major considerations - we just want a good meal. My parents do not like to travel far from home so please keep any recommendations close Boca. Thanks very much.

  1. Where have you eaten when you've been down here in the past? Which places were bad?

    Here are some of my favs in Boca. :)

    Bagels - Gramercy Deli on Jog Rd, south of Linton, awesome bagels, nice deli counter too
    Bagels - Way Beyond Bagels (more of a quick food/starbux type set up but very good spreads and A LOT of options)
    Pastrami/Deli - Pastrami Queen
    Gourmet Cheese & sandwiches - Cheese Course in Mizner Park
    Pizza - Brooklyn Pizza (corner of 441 & Glades) near Boston Market - awesome pizza!
    Saporrissimo - E. Palmetto Park Rd. - $$$$ but an awesome Italian restaurant, like dining in their homes
    Chinese - Sieng House (Camino Real & 2nd Ave) very little ambience, closed on sundays, but really good local Chinese
    Sushi - Japango - Shops of Woodfield Yamato & Jog
    Sushi - BlueFin - Yamato & Congress
    Max's Grill - Mizner Park great lunches, dinners, & brunch - a consistent Boca standard

    Way Beyond Bagels

    1. We love Abe and Louie's for steaks and City Fish Market (in the old Pete's) for seafood.

      Abe and Louie's
      2200 Glades Rd Ste 201, Boca Raton, FL 33431

      City Fish Market
      7940 Glades Rd, Boca Raton, FL 33434

      1. My favorites are Ristorante Sapori, City Fish Market, Truluck's, Renzo's, Mateo's, Ruth's Chris, and McCormick and Schmick's. You won't find a bad meal at any of those places

        2. I second Sapporissimo - holy moly what a great place.
          Also like both Renzo's restaurants on Federal Hwy.

          For something different go to Delray Beach, Tramonte, Cut, Cugina Grill, Gol!, Cabana, Luna Rosa, Bamboo Fire, Dada, Vic and Angelos to name a few.
