Limani Grille, Boca Raton

This seafood-focused eatery inside Town Center at Boca Raton promises Mediterranean dishes with a focus on Greek cuisines when it opens next spring. This will be the third location for the brand, which can also be found in Commack, N.Y., and Boston. 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton; simon.com/mall 


Madame Tang’s, Boca Raton

Celebrity chef Ralph Pagano and Jay Shirodkar have created Madame Tang’s to offer what they promise will be a new, modern take on Chinese cuisine and other Asian favorites. The restaurant inside Town Center at Boca Raton mall is expected to open spring 2024. Early word is that the bar will also have an expansive program. Fans of TV cooking competitions know Pagano for his turns on “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Pressure Cook” and “Iron Chef,” but local foodies know him for his Naked brand: Naked Taco and Naked Crab, which have multiple locations throughout South Florida. 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton; simon.com/mall 




Booming Boca: Here are the plans for Midtown Boca in the coming years:

“Restaurant Row” off of Town Center Road in Boca Raton will have four new restaurants with outdoor seating. Restaurant Row is located in Midtown Boca, which spans from Palmetto Park Road to Yamato Road and I-95 to St. Andrews Boulevard.

OPENED: Red Pine, an authentic Chinese restaurant, at the One Town Center tower off of Military Trail. There will also be various businesses leasing new office spaces in the area, creating apartments, stores, restaurants and medical space.

OPENEDNOVEMBER 20, 2023-Fiolina Past House-Homemade and Handmade past specialties. Located where Town Center Road intersects with Butts Road at 5377 Town Center Rd., #300, Boca 33431    www.FiolinaPasta.com  

Another of those restaurants is El Camino, which already has locations in West Palm Beach and Delray Beach right now. Management of El Camino says the Boca Raton location will be the largest one when it opens this summer.

Town Center Mall, which brings 15 million visitors a year to the area encourages growth of apartments, condos, retail,  restaurants, and more shopping areas. Midtown Boca is booming because of the influx of people from all over the country.

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: [email protected] or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.
