If you find yourself hungry and in Boca Raton, hit Mizner Park. There are plenty of dining options. Here are some of our favorites:

Kapow! Noodle Bar

Yes, this Asian gastro-pub offers yummy noodles. Their beef ramen is delicious, offering salty little noodles with still-crisp bok choy, scallions and skirt steak in a broth you’ll consider tipping the bowl and drinking up! Other stand-out nibbles, the Bahn Mi Sliders, served on a baguette filled with slow-cooked pulled pork with a smear of pate, chili-cilantro, pickled carrots and daikon!

Tanzy

Tanzy is a great date night location since it’s technically connected to the iPic Theater. One can have a nice dinner and then catch a movie! Bites that stood out: The Tuscan Kale salad has crunchy pine nuts and black currants (fancy!); the Quinoa and Almond Crusted Goat Cheese Salad is both crunchy and cheesy, and the orecchiette with spiced turkey sausage and Swiss chard is huge.

Max’s Grille

Max’s has long been popular with locals who enjoy casual yet elevated American fare. Some of our favorite bites: The Duck Spring Rolls – the gentle flavor of duck is only heightened on the first bite through the crisp exterior. And the Jumbo Lump CrabCake preserves a tender inside despite a perfect crisp on the outside. It’s served with whole grain mustard sauce, wilted spinach with braised leeks, & roasted tomato.

Racks Downtown Eatery & Tavern

This modern eatery oozes contemporary cool with an open kitchen and separate bar area. The menu offers classic American cuisine with a few unique twists. Hits include the Spicy Buffalo Calamari served with celery, peanuts and blue cheese. The rings were lightly breaded and tossed in a very spicy Buffalo sauce, but there was plenty of crumbled cheese topping the dish to cool the palate. The peanuts added an extra flavor element and a nice textural crunch to the dish.
