Red the Steakhouse, Rosso Italia: Boca Raton Gets Two New Restaurants

Boca Raton diners are about to be hit up with two new restaurants this week when Red the Steakhouse and Rosso Italia open. Both restaurants are owned by Cleveland-based Red Restaurant Group.

Successful South Beach restaurant Red the Steakhouse, which also has a Cleveland location, opens its newest dining room in Boca Raton tonight, April 10.

Executive chef Peter Vauthy will oversee the kitchen, which serves only certified Angus beef prime, the highest USDA beef grade available.

Vauthy is known for being meticulous in his selection of ingredients, going so far as to hold informational sessions for both kitchen and front-of-the-house staff on the sources for the restaurants meats and seafood.

Red's dining room, decorated in shades of mahogany and (what else?) reds,

is a sophisticated mix of traditional steak-house décor with modern

lines. The restaurant is equally inviting for both power dinners and

date night bites.

Rosso Italia, the 220-seat next-door neighbor to Red the Steakhouse, will open on Thursday, April 12. The first Italian

concept restaurant for the Red Restaurant Group, Rosso Italia will serve

simple, signature, Italian-inspired cuisine spearheaded by executive chef

Jonathan Bennett. 

Dishes include hand-made pastas, brick-oven

pizzas, and grilled meats and seafood. An additional menu section offers

an array of hand-picked imported meats and cheeses.
