If a bowl filled with cilantro noodles, ponzu-marinated tuna, and maple-roasted butternut squash drenched in a zingy carrot ginger sauce sounds like the perfect healthful meal, prepare to fill up.
Chris Gannon, son of Outback cofounder Tim Gannon, is quickly expanding his healthy eats restaurant Bolay with two new locations planned for the area. The restaurant, which specializes in customizable superfood bowls, has announced the opening of its second location at 3333 Northlake Blvd. in Palm Beach Gardens, tentatively slated for October 29. A third Boca Raton restaurant will open at the Polo Club Shoppes at 5030 Champion Blvd. in Boca Raton December 1.
At Bolay, diners can select from a variety of proteins, bases, vegan-friendly sides, and sauces. It starts with a choice of ponzu tuna, Caribbean-spiced steak, lemon chicken, or tofu. Bases for bowls provide several more flavor combinations with gluten-free cilantro noodles, Peruvian-style quinoa, or a marinated kale and currant salad. From there, add-ons include a healthful selection of vegetables like roasted Brussels sprouts or cauliflower, or maple roasted butternut squash.
To top it off, an assortment of sauces provides a finishing touch from the popular cilantro pesto and spicy Thai to carrot ginger, among others. Bowls can also be paired with the store's selection of housemade, cold-pressed juices and infused teas.
Until the new stores open later this year, customers can visit Bolay's flagship Royal Palm Beach restaurant. The location recently launched an online order tool at eatbolay.com, giving guests the opportunity to order ahead to save time. Additionally, Bolay now offers catering services for homes, offices, and event spaces throughout the greater Palm Beach area.
"As we grow, we'll continue innovating and expanding our build-your-own bowl experience throughout the Palm Beach County area," said Gannon. "Our gluten free, nutrient rich ingredients aren’t special requests; they’re always-featured selections."
The new Bolay locations will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Bolay is located at 250 S. State Road 7, Royal Palm Beach; 561-899-0111, or visit bolay-restaurant-wellington.com.
