First Look: RACKS Fish House and Oyster Bar Opens in Delray Beach

This week Delray Beach welcomed a newcomer to the Atlantic Ave. restaurant row: RACKS Fish House and Oyster Bar, which opened for business on Monday.

Billed as a New England seafood house, the concept is an extension of owner and South Florida restaurateur Gary Rack's RACKS Downtown Eatery Mizner Park. Rack, whose portfolio includes Table 42 Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar, told Clean Plate Charlie RACKS Fish House will be the first of future establishments to bare the RACKS name, although concepts and theme will differ.

"Our purpose is to grow the brand RACKS no matter the tag line, concept or menu," said Rack during a recent interview.
