Ten Best Restaurants in Boca Raton

4. Casa D'Angelo
The second outpost of his Fort Lauderdale flagship, Casa D'Angelo in Boca Raton offers the same high-end Tuscan cuisine in a similar elegant contemporary environment. Executive chef/owner Angelo Elia is known for elevating Broward's overall dining scene with his namesake restaurant, which has since done the same in Boca and even Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Here you'll find simple, refined dishes ranging from bistecca alla fiorentina (dry-aged New York strip steak marinated in olive oil, rosemary, and garlic, and served with Vidalia onion and wild mushrooms) to pastas like the spaghetti misura al pesto e pomodori arrostiti (whole-wheat spaghetti with oven-dried yellow and red tomatoes in a basil pesto sauce). Italians are known for living the good life; eat here and you'll be doing the same -- even if your credit card bill doesn't necessarily agree.

3. Abe & Louie's
You can look at Boca restaurants without looking at some pomp. Abe & Louie's is neither new nor trendy, but it is a classic steak house that caters to the wealthy power players of Boca, with traditional oversized leather chairs and vintage Hollywood-style booths. Prime steaks (think wood-fired, bone-in aged prime rib eye), fresh seafood dishes like baked and stuffed Maine lobster, and an expansive, award-winning wine list epitomize the established steak houses of yesteryear. There's a reason some places don't give sway to new trends and whims; they can stand the test of time.

Nope, close though - but we know the area well and appreciate the new food scene that is emerging, as well as the old. Thank you very much for the kind comments.

I like the list and it gives me an idea for a new place to try (six tables). I agree that Kapow and rebel house, for their type of restaurants, are outstanding. And here in boca to have those hip restaurants is nothing short of a miracle! Both restaurants are slices of Delray in boca. I have theorized that clean plate Charlie is a boca person; true?


Tucci's belongs here too

@GovtMule It was pretty difficult to narrow it down to ten, but we'll keep it in mind for next time. Thanks for the input!
