Ten Best Restaurants in Delray Beach
4. 32 East
32 East facebook page
If boredom is a problem for you, we suggest 32 East. The massive space is host to a constantly changing menu -- we're talking everyday -- with some of the highest quality, sustainable ingredients that can be found. One day you might walk in to find oak roasted prosciutto wrapped Indian river peaches with upland cress, marcona almonds, cambazola, and gastrique; another day it'll be pan-roasted Mississippi quail stuffed with chorizo, corn, and manchego cheese on mashed potatoes with sherry wine pan sauce. Either way, you're going to be pleased. To top it all off, the pastry chef prepared desserts are like the icing on the cake -- cheesy, but correct.
3. Sundy House
One of the most elegant -- and oldest -- restaurants in South Florida, the Sundy House is set in a restored turn-of-the-century mansion previously owned by the Mayor of Delray. The kitchen is now run by locally loved Top Chef Texas finalist, Lindsay Autry. The daily changing menu features interesting yet accessible dishes like sweetbreads,
braised veal cheek with toasted garlic and a swank heirloom bean vinaigrette and celery caesar of celery root, petite celery greens, brioche croutons, and traditional caesar dressing. Dessert is just as exciting: renowned pastry chef Sarah Sipe will finish you off with whimsical options like orange dreamsicle made with chocolate orange mousse, orange ice cream, and candied almonds and cookies and cream spiced chocolate pot de crème, chocolate salted cookie, dulce ice cream. The experience is like adult romance mixed with childhood fantasy. If only it came along with an imaginary check at the end.
