Restaurant News: Moquila to Reopen, Alabama Joe's Expands, More on Max's

•    It wasn't all that long ago Charlie noted the demise of Moquila, the upscale Mexican eatery in Boca that for a time after opening was quite the gastronomic hot stuff. Well, according to an ad on Craigslist, poshly appointed outpost of "progressive Mexican/Latin cuisine" is making a June comeback with"Chef Hall" a "renowned culinary genius," behind the stove. Charlie's got a couple of calls in to the new crew and will report back whenever they're returned.

•    Charlie's also waiting for more info on a second location for Lake Worth's family and sports nut-friendly Alabama Joe's Front Row Sports Theater & Grille.

No debut date or details yet, but Joe's, the sequel, is going into the

Town Center Canyon mall in West Boynton Beach. If it's anything like its

Lake Worth parent, there will be more flat-screen TVs than you can

shake a french fry at, plus a moderately priced "Big Eats, Home Cookin'"

menu that ranges from burgers and chicken "wangs" to meatloaf and

Southern fried chicken.

•    A few more details to add to the coming of Max's Harvest,

the latest venture of Palm Beach restaurateur Dennis Max. The "farm to

fork" eatery will make its debut in the Delray spot once home to Taste

Gastropub on Thursday, June 9. Exec chef Chris Miracolo, late of

Himmarshee Bar & Grill, will be working with such esteemed purveyors

as Swank Farms, Farmer Jay's Organics and Heritage Hen Farms to craft

dishes like wahoo crudo with yellow chili emulsion and hand-cut

pappardelle with spring lamb ragout.
