DIY Dining Comes to Boca Raton: Butcher & the Burger and Dandelion Opening in the Town Center

Are you the type of person that likes to do everything yourself? You change your car's oil in the garage, do your taxes online, service your own pool -- and even mow your lawn without a single complaint. Why? Because it's getting done the right way, that's why!

Now, if only you could get the same kind of stellar service you provide for your family while dining out -- just one of many activities you simply can't take into your own hands.

But what if you could customize and create your meal at a restaurant down to the most seemingly miniscule detail? Would that be something on your to-do list? Well, wait no longer: all your DIY dreams for seasoning, dressing and prepping your own food have finally come true at a new burger spot in Boca Raton that lets you customize everything down to the very last detail.

Where? The new Butcher & the Burger -- and sister concept Dandelion -- set to open at the shops of the Town Center of Boca Raton next week. (UPDATE: In the original version of this story, we wrote that the restaurant would be opening April 10. After it was published, we learned the opening had been pushed back a week and made the correction. Sorry for any confusion.)
