Historic Sundy House

106 S. Swinton Ave. Delray Beach, FL 33444 | Delray Beach | 561-272-5678

Location Description:

Historic Sundy House is one of the most gorgeous restaurants in South Florida, set in a restored turn-of-the-century mansion once owned by the mayor of Delray Beach and surrounded by a lush tropical garden that reportedly cost well into the millions. A stroll through that garden is worth the price of an expensive dinner. There are koi ponds, gazebos, waterfalls, and paths leading to a natural swimming pool where fish don't seem to mind the bathers. In its heyday, the kitchen was run by Florida whiz chef Johnny Vinczencz; when he left, he took some of his New World magic with him. The setting, however, is still unbeatable.
