Vacationing in Boca Raton - Where to eat???

dtkearns May 18, 2010 09:09 AM

My family and I will be arriving in Boca Raton next week for a week-long vacation. Looking for some dining suggestions. Perhaps a great deli, best pizza, good breakfast then a nicer place for just the adults. We like all kinds of food, but definitely want to stay away from all chains or food that I can eat anytime in Ohio. Thanks!

    Renzo's of Boca for Italian, Abe & Louie's for steak and Renzo's Cafe for pizza!

      Agreed on Renzo's ...one of my favorite Italian places, Shrimp the size of lobster tails

      Pass on Abe n Louie's - something wrong when a steakhouse cant cook a steak medium rare...had to send it back 3 times and I never send anything back. Wife got the 3 lb lobster, came litterally frozen in the middle...At that price frozen maine lobster...no thanks!

        If you're not in the mood for pizza pie, Renzo's makes awesome Calzone's.

        For a really nice adult evening try Le Rivage www.restaurantlerivage.com for French cuisine. Delicious and definitely not a chain!

          re-post this on the Miami board which now includes north to West Palm. Most of us in So Fl don't look at the Fl board much.

            Dominics II for the best pizza! There's lots of good bagel places in Boca for breakfast, most I've tried are good, pick one. I can think of three NY style delis, but all are chains. Really, good luck avoiding chains. There are a whole lot of chain restaurants in the Mouth of the Rat...

            Here's a blog post I did a while back on Dominic's pizza in case you're interested:
