75 Main, Delray

Tried it twice, hoping second time would be better. Not going back. I've been to the one in the Hampton's and wasn't thrilled. Was hopeful that this would be better. We were really looking forward to a new option on Atlantic Ave. Good location and ambiance, but food is below average. Also, the menu options aren't thrilling. The bread is awful, which is always a bad sign (doesn't make sense, as you can have great bread delivered). Hope they read this and make improvements.

  1. I'd like to second this opinion. I went to Main 75 Tuesday night and it was much the way it was described by LifeisGood58. Whereas the rest of Atlantic Ave. was poppin' Main 75 had few diners (which should have been my clue). The music was jarring and you could hear the credit card machine chirp every few minutes. I felt like I was in a nightclub/bank. The menu was uninspired and the bread hard and stale. The worst part for me was the crazy amount of sand in my mussels. The worst part for my husband was talking to a bartender who didn't know what scotch was (no...Knob Creek is not a scotch whiskey). I always root for new restaurants but this one needs to get its act together fast or it won't be here for season.

      Walking down the Ave last night, I peeked in and spotted in chef's attire...

      Mark Miletello.

      Hostess confirmed "Yes, we are making some changes'.

      So it sounds like Chef Mark may have a new gig here.

        Hope it's true! If Mark Miletello is the new chef, then hopefully they will have a chance to succeed. That's the only way I will try 75 Main again. It would behoove them to get the word out.
