The rumors are true, carnivores. Red, the Steakhouse is coming to Boca, to the Wyndham Garden hotel at Glades Road and Military Trail.
The debut of the high-end steak house, which also has outlets in South Beach and Cleveland, Ohio, is expected in early November, according to Red marketing director Rosemary Staltare. Another Red is expected to open sometime later in Washington, D.C., followed by meateries in Chicago and New York.
Boca, it hardly needs to be pointed out, isn't exactly D.C.,
Chicago, New York, or even Cleveland. So what gives with the local site?
Lots of Red's best customers in those other cities either have second
homes in the Boca area or spend their winters here, Staltare said, and
wanted access to their favorite purveyor of designer beef.
Boca Red's menu will be pretty similar to Miami's, which means the
restaurant's signature 30-day wet-aged certified Angus prime beef, which
can be had with a half-dozen sauces and toppings, from
béarnaise and chimichurri to blue cheese and Oscar, as well as the usual
steak-house assortment of starters and sides.
The folks at Red
have something else up their sleeve too, but for now, Charlie is sworn to
secrecy, so you'll just have to check back in a couple/three weeks.
