A Fine Dining establishment in East Boca Raton that won't break the bank

Hello fellow foodies,

My husband and I recently went to a wonderful intimate restaurant in East Boca Raton called Six Tables (www.SixTablesBocaRaton.com ).
This place is outstanding. For around $100, you get a lovely 4 course meal, with a glass of champagne to begin with. The night we were there, I ordered the Lobster Bisque to start and let me tell you, this was the best Lobster Bisque that I have ever had in my life. Yumm, warms my tummy just thinking/writing about it..oh, sorry, got a bit side tracked. A basket of warm homemade bread was brought to the table that melted the butter on contact. It had a hint of fresh rosemary that was so delicious. We both delighted in the salad that was tossed with this fantastic again, homemade, dressing. I had the lamb chops, my husband had the steak- both cooked to absolute perfection. There was also a lemon sorbet brought out to "cleanse our palates"- which you know you're at a fine dining establishment when you see that. To round off this great evening, we ended with a decadent slice of chocolate tort (which I enjoyed with my superb glass of red wine) and key lime pie. The owner Jon, is very nice and personal and he cooks for everyone at the same time, it's like you're guests at his home. The ambience is very nice and romantic and you can actually have a pleasant conversation with your dinner guest without having to shout. We had a very enjoyable evening. So, if you are looking for a unique romantic dining experience then I would suggest you pick up the phone and make your next dinner reservation at Six Tables of Boca Raton.

Six Tables is located at 112 NE 2nd St, Boca Raton, FL 33432
(561) 347-6260


Until we eat again...
I send you delicious wishes,

A Taste of the Mediterranean right here in Boca Raton

Hello Fellow Foodies,

I know it's been a while since my last food blog, and for that I am sorry. It's not that I haven't been out discovering new Food Finds in Boca, it's just that I've been so darn busy that I haven't been able to sit down and write about them. So here goes...

A few weeks back, my husband and I decided to try Rauf's Anatolia Mediterranean Nights, a new restaurant that opened up at Royal Palm Place. As we entered the cozy, softly lit room, we discovered there was a birthday party celebration in progress. The music was cheerful and there was a belly dancer dancing ever so gracefully around the room. Hands were clapping, people were smiling and cheering. You couldn't help but join in on the fun. It certainly was entertaining as we waited to place our order and kept us preoccupied while we waited for our food to arrive. (And that's a good thing. Trust me it made the wait seem almost non-existent.)

I had the Mousaka, which consisted of layers of fried zucchini and potatoes topped with sauteed onions, garlic, tomatoes and peppers. It was delicious! My husband had the Chicken Kebab which he thoroughly enjoyed as well.

Next time you're looking for somewhere to go that is both tasty and entertaining, head on over to Rauf's Anatolia Mediterranean Nights and let me know what you think!

They are located at 507 SE Mizner Blvd. at Royal Palm Place in Boca Raton
