Josper Oven in local restaurants? 13 American Table, Boca Raton
- CFByrne Aug 15, 2013 01:35 PM
"13 American Table" restaurant is now open in Boca Raton.
The owners are the folks behind Tucci's pizza. The chef Anthony Fiorini, previously worked at 32 East.
They're highlighting (quite heavily) the fact that they have a Josper Charcoal Oven... which I'd never hear of until now - silly me!
Any other places around that feature this Josper so much?
Any thoughts on if it makes such a huge difference?
Can't really speak to other places, but we ate at 13 American Table last week, and think it's a great addition! The room was clean and comfortable (although a bit loud, but not Rebel House loud) and the service was excellent. We started with several appetizers to share, including a grilled octopus, a chopped vegetable and quinoa salad (which was much better than the name would lead you to believe) and grouper ceviche, and for mains grouper, salmon and a steak, all grilled on the Josper, and everything was excellent! Good flavors and nicely composed plates. They have a good small selection of craft beers, special cocktails and a nice wine list. It reminded me a bit of Michael's Genuine. I hope they do well, given the care they seemed to be taking with the food and the service, I don't see why they won't.
Thanks - good to know... I think that grilled octopus is from the Josper as well.
BTW if you dine at Tucci's, with your receipt they'll give you something like 20% off at 13. Not sure for how long or how much...
But I got one the other day... so now I def will be trying out 13... maybe tonight in fact.
This place is a winner. They know what they're doing with experience from 32 East and even Danny Meyer's USHG.
Nice room, superb service, creative dishes. This instantly becomes the most interesting full service restaurant in Boca IMO, along with Rebel down the street. Nice craft beer choices as well.
