At the Town Center at Boca Raton mall on Glades Road, plans are to bring a restaurant dubbed Rex Baron to the wing that features Nordstrom. Rex Baron is an eatery designed to feel like entertainment, in this case, a post-apocalyptic-theme.
The 8,200-square-foot restaurant, opening in the former Davinci’s Italian Restaurant space, is described as both casual and upscale and features modern American cuisine.
At The restaurant has created a vigilante character, Rex Baron, which will be featured in art exhibits and background stories.
There’s even a virtual reality room dubbed VREX for added immersion in the multi-sensory theme.
The stressful-sounding eatery also features a bar, perhaps to provide relief from all the end-of-the-world reminders.
Rex Baron, expected to open in October, has one other location in Philadelphia.
Another restaurant coming to the mall this fall is La Boulangerie Boul’Mich, a French bakery with a Latin twist.
In addition, Joseph’s Classic Market will open at the end of 2020 in the former Pinon and Blue Martini space.
Meanwhile, at Uptown Boca, a new shopping center under construction west of Boca Raton, more restaurants and shops are joining the tenant roster.
Coming to the mixed-use center will be Lynora’s Osteria, an Italian restaurant with sister locations on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach and in Jupiter.
Other tenants coming are Olive U Mediterranean Grill, Paradise Grills (which sells outdoor grills), Tipsy Salonbar, plus F45 Training fitness studio and Sport Clips Haircuts.
They join other previously announced tenants Lucky’ Market organic grocer, Silverspot Cinema, Chick-fil-A, Bolay and BurgerFi.
Uptown Boca will feature 155,000 square feet of retail and 456 luxury apartments. The 38-acre project is being developed by Schmier Property Group, Giles Capital Group and Rosemurgy Properties in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital.
Uptown Boca, at Glades Road and 9th Avenue South, is set to open in 2020.
