Zoup, Zalads and Zandwiches, oh my!
You'll be saying the same once you step foot into the three-month old breakfast and lunch spot, Zup, in Boca Raton. The newest addition to Mizner Park is the perfect way to start your day, and whether you're there for brunch or lunch, the menu is chocked full of creative culinary takes on some standard menu favorites.
At Zup, the best of both breakfast and lunch unite -- everything from their Zuper omelets and breakfast wraps, to their specialty, the Azzorted Eggs Benedict.
And -- for today only -- you can get a taste of anything on the wide-ranging menu for half-price with our Deal of the Day
Go for the Eggs Benedict, served six different ways starting with two perfectly poached eggs atop a toasted, buttered jumbo English muffin. Topped with a house-made Hollandaise sauce and finished off to your liking, the classic is simple and delicious, served with a smoky honey ham for $7.95. But you can be creative with grilled or roasted vegetables, smoked salmon or even lobster (up to $14.95).
And if you like lobster, prepared to be wowed -- you'll find the sweet meat stuffed into nearly every menu option, with specials featuring the fresh-delivered Maine variety.
You'll get your money's worth with the giant double-decker lobster BLT club ($14.95). As the menu states, if you had to pick just one sandwich to eat the rest of your life, this would be it. But at Zup, we say the soup is the way to go, and Charlie recommends the homemade Lobster bisque ($12.95), a creamy, decadent treat that -- like all their soups -- are made from scratch daily.
Watching your waistline? The lettuce wraps are a surprising delight, a do-it-yourself option with lobster or chicken that gives you that "no-guilt" feeling for lunch ($7.95-$14.95).
