While we understand that restaurant people need some time off, it can be a real disappointment when you really want to go somewhere specific and it's closed.
Whether it's not open for lunch, closed on Mondays, or you slacked on arriving before closing time, it sucks when you can't satiate a craving. First world problems, right?
As of today, one awesome Boca Raton-based, beer-centric eatery is extending its hours to include lunch. The Sybarite Pig is now opening its doors from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
The new lunch menu offers many of the dinner items, as well as, a new selection of lighter lunch fare. "We've added three Salads, three soups, and two tarts," said owner Daniel Naumko, "We're also adding a pickled beef tongue sandwich that will also be offered for dinner."
Salads such as the Som Tum, green papaya, toasted peanuts, dried shrimp, cherry tomatoes, and fish sauce, or the chicken salad with free range chicken breast, farm fresh greens, avocado, and radishes range from $8 to $12.
Soups are about $6 or $7, and include items such as the San Marzano velouté with mozzarella cream, and locally grown micro basil and the sriracha chicken in spicy lemongrass broth with noodles and locally grown micro cilantro.
The new tarts include lamb ($6) and creamed spinach ($5).
A selection of creative sandwiches are offered as well. There's the newest--and most eccentric--pickled beef tongue ($12) with piquillo peppers, sherry gastrique, and aioli, a tritip duck fat burger ($12) on a kaiser with tomatoes, red onion, shallot jelly, and aioli, an apple lemon pork sausage served on a pretzel bun with fennel plum relish and chicharron dust, and more.
This will be the first time since opening that the spot will offer the lunch service. According to Naumko, he decided to expand the hours due to customer demand.
The Sybarite Pig is located at 20642 State Road 7 in Boca Raton. Call 561-883-3200.
