Boca Raton used to be a sleepy seaside town, but these days it seems as if the world comes to us. In years past, Boca Raton restaurants used to be good, but conventional. Now, nearly every conceivable kind of cuisine can be found here or in the greater South Florida area from every inhabited continent. Here is where you can find restaurants opening in Boca Raton!
Fresh off his star-making run in Fort Lauderdale, Chef Danny Kou of Lima Peru, has set up shop on his second South Florida location right here in Boca Raton! Its locale is modest, inside an unassuming shopping plaza off of Federal Highway. However, inside, a master chef is at work bringing a special kind of vitality that earns this venue a place at the top of any Boca Raton restaurant guide. Chef Kou is a former protégé of famed Chef Gaston Acurio. With dishes like jumbo scallops in passion fruit-black bean sauces and cocktails named “Mad About You” (Japanese whisky, yuzu, tangerine, lemongrass, Polynesian bitter), Kousine is a must-visit for the adventurous gourmand.

“This is incredible. This is awesome,” said Deering, President of the Braves youth football organization. “The kids actually came out for the first time on it today, loved it. Loved the feel of it. It's basically like real grass, too. Safety wise the kids are loving it. We love it.”
When complete, the $4 million Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District project that began in March will create three new turf fields for community use in place of what previously were natural turf fields.
The new turf fields require less maintenance, affording more time for play. And the new drainage system underneath the fields eliminates the need to cancel games because of soggy fields.
Two of the multi-purpose fields are already complete, with the third scheduled to open by the end of the month. Fields will have permanent lines for football, lacrosse and soccer, but can be used for most any sport that requires a field....
