Andrew Weil’s True Food Kitchen Comes to Boca!
Listen up healthy eaters!
Here’s some good news for health-seeking followers of Dr. Andrew Weil, America’s best-known advocate of anti-inflammatory foods: Weil’s True Food Kitchen will open a location in Boca Raton later this month. The casual, holistic foods restaurant debuts Feb. 21 in Boca’s Town Center, making it South Florida’s first True Food Kitchen. The chain has a location in Naples.
According to The Palm Beach Post, in Boca, the concept co-founded by Weil and Phoenix restaurateur Sam Fox nearly a decade ago will inhabit more than 7200 square feet at the mall, offering indoor and outdoor dining areas serviced by an open kitchen.
- Charred cauliflower with harissa tahini, medjool date, dill, mint and pistachios; edamame dumplings with dashi, white truffle oil and Asian herbs.
- Chicken sausage pizza with organic tomato, roasted fennel, and scamorza cheese.
- An ancient grains bowl with miso-glazed sweet potato, turmeric, charred onion, snow pea, grilled Portobello, avocado and hemp seed.
- A grass-fed burger with mushroom, caramelized onion, arugula, Parmesan and mayo on a flax seed bun.
- Poke bowl of wild-caught albacore with avocado, quinoa, veggies, cashews, ginger and turmeric ponzu.
- Grilled fish or grass-fed steak tacos with toppings.
- Add a wide range of teas, tonics, juices, smoothies, grownup cocktails, soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts and a kids’ menu and you’ve got options that require some deliberation.
The partnership between the integrative medicine guru (Weil) and a repeated nominee for the James Beard Award for Restaurateur of the Year (Fox) has been a successful one. With the addition of the Boca Raton restaurant, True Food Kitchen now boasts 22 national locations. This will be the second Fox-related restaurant at Town Center – Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar is also part of the Fox Restaurant Concepts group.
