Surf Sliders Catches Wave Into Delray

A seemingly jinxed location and two weeks of shitty weather don't make getting a restaurant off the ground any easier, but Delray's new Surf Sliders is putting the finishing touches on its beachfront property and hopes to succeed where its two most recent predecessors have failed. 


Part of restaurateur Jim Taube's mini-empire (Kée Grill, Cool'a

Fishbar, Jetty's, Bimini Twist), Sliders is a casual as a pair of

flip-flops and almost as affordable. The dining room with its

half-indoor/half-outdoor bar sports giant faux-marlin leaping off the

wall, four big-screen TVs, exhibition kitchen, lots of comfy booths

inside, and tiny tables outside, where you can watch tourists walk

blindly into traffic screaming up and down A1A at East Atlantic

Avenue. 

The menu is short, focused, and (mostly) inexpensive.

Sammies (fish and chicken) and (USDA prime Angus) burgers take up a lot

of real estate, followed by composed salads from Asian-style grilled

chicken to macadamia-nut-crusted grouper, a handful of starters and

sides, and specials that include filet mignon tips, pan-seared

crabcakes, and grilled salmon. Despite its name, no sliders, though.

Burgers and sammies range from $9.95 to $15.95, salads from $15.95 to

$16.95, and entrées from $16.95 to $19.95. 

Open for lunch and dinner daily. Place bets on which tourist will wind up a smear on the pavement.
