Last week my husband had a conference at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. We had been there fifteen years ago and had a wonderful meal at their restaurant located at the top of the tower. We had chateaubriand for two and a gorgeous chocolate dessert, served in a chocolate cigar box filled with little chocolate treats.

That meal was much better. It started with our Romanian waiter who went into extensive detail on just about every item on the menu- how it was created, what was in it, why it is the best thing you will ever eat. While Gabriel was entertaining, it was a bit overwhelming.
We all shared appetizers. I ordered the burratini special- a homemade burrata with peaches, arugula and prosciutto that was refreshing and delicious. The eggplant rollatini was the consensus best appetizer, maybe the best dish of the meal.
My husband had the Veal Scallopini Marsala, and he declared it the second best veal dish he has ever had, after Michael's Restaurant back in our old stomping grounds of Auburn, NY. My rigatoni with meatballs was very good as well.

The resort is beautiful, it opened in the 1920s and has the elegant feel of that era. It was nice to see the sun for a few days too, as the weather back in NYC has not been so nice this spring.
