Restaurant News: Bova to Go Rare, Morton's Does Dinner for Two, Boynton Diner Gets Palm Beach Chef
• Rare isn't typically a word used to describe South Florida steak houses, which have become more ubiquitous than slow drivers in the fast lane on I-95. But Rare is apparently the emporium of meat designated to slip into the Las Olas Boulevard space once home to Bova Prime. No opening date as of yet, so you'll have to be content with satisfying your carnivorous cravings at SoFla's 10 gazillion other steak houses.
• Speaking of meat (why do I feel like Rham Fama?), the various and sundry local Morton's meateries are offering a special three-course, dinner-for-two menu through the end of the year. Cost is $109.99 for choice of salads first course; filet mignon, scallops, shrimp and/or crabcake for entrée, plus veggie and potato; and chocolate cake, Key lime pie, or crème brulee for dessert.
• Boynton Diner (500 E. Woolbright Road, Boynton Beach; 561-364-1819) is expanding its menu and hours thanks to new chef Jim Grisbeck, late of Ta-boo restaurant in considerably tonier Palm Beach. Look for dishes like jerk-marinated shrimp brochette and smoked salmon penne with vodka-dill cream sauce. You can still get meat loaf and country-fried steak, though.
