the article doesn't say when it opens. At the site of Busch's.

    Well, it doesn't say when it will open... other than in the lead sentence Smartie!

    "He’s been wowing South Florida diners since 1980, but opening by the end of October is what restaurateur Burt Rapoport hopes will be his “signature” achievement."

        I'm happy to see something new go in there. This location has a ton of potential. I'm cautiously optimistic.

          it is a lovely spot, I hope parking is not too difficult in season, they might benefit from the new Seacrest Hotel close by otherwise they have to find a way to attract locals out of season and tourists and locals in season away from the main drag of Atlantic Ave, otherwise it will be likely doomed.

          I hope it's good. I'd love to take a boat ride there.

          1. CFByrne Sep 17, 2010 06:20 AM

            The challenge I think will be visibility. If you drive by that spot on Atlantic, it's virtually invisible as Atlantic Ave rises up to go over the Intracoastal and it is almost hidden beneath the roadway.

            Some of the Ave's seemingly most succesful spots (like it or not) such as Vic and Angelos, The Office, and Elwoods/Johnnie Brown's draw people in, I believe, by bringing the excitement right out to the street with their "open fronts".

            I don't think Deck 84 will be able to do this, so they'll have to rely on other things - great food, service, deals, energy, word-of-mouth...

                    It will be cool to see how this place turns out. Though Buschs did set the bar pretty low. So I'm sure it will at least be 100 times better than that.

                      I was under the impression the soft opening was Friday Nov 19th.. might be mock service though

                        Yes, there IS a soft opening Fri night 11/19. See the Facebook link above for more info. RSVP required.
                        After that:
                        "Deck 84 will officially be open for lunch and dinner beginning Saturday, November 20, 2010. Brunch will be served waterfront as of Saturday, November 27, 2010."

                        Who has been to Deck 84 and what are your favorites for lunch...no salads, app or sandwich favorites?

                            @flfoodie2 "No salads, app, or sandwich favorites"? That doesn't leave much for lunch favs.

                            I haven't been since I went to the opening, but my boyfriend went for brunch last week, got the eggs benedict, and said it was ok. My friend went for Sunday brunch and she enjoyed it - and she's super picky about restaurants.

                                  Oh ok!

                                  Well my bf said that compared to Luna Rosa's benedict, there is no comparison so he was disappointed in it and said the hollandaise was a little watery and didn't taste as good.

                                  That's all I've got. :)
