Racks Boca kicks off Sunday ‘lunch hall’ with DJ, cocktails 


Don’t call it brunch. The new “Sunday Edition” feast, which kicks off this weekend at Racks Downtown Eatery + Tavern in Boca Raton, aims for more of a lunch-hall feel.

Sure, the prix-fixe feast has food stations and “bottomless” brunch cocktails. But restaurateur Gary Rack’s newest dining feature is all about exploring the culinary gifts of some interesting American food districts. 

The full spread includes more than 60 dishes arranged in stations bearing names like Little Italy, Grand Ole Nashville, Chinatown Market, Calle Ocho, High Tide Seafood Company, Sweet Treat Desserts and Farm House Kitchen (a nod to Rack’s Delray spot). 

On the menu: dumplings, ribs, noodles and rolls at Chinatown; Southern fried chicken, fried pork chops, jalapeño hot links, biscuits and more at Nashville; “peel and eats,” oysters, ceviche, mini lobster rolls and sides at High Tide; chicken Parm, meatballs, Sicilian pizza and plenty more at Little Italy; mini Cuban sammies, chicharrones, street corn, black beans and more at Calle Ocho; hearty breakfast favorites at Farmhouse, plus about 10 dessert options. 

For grownup sipping, Sunday Edition will offer a la carte, “bottomless” Bloody Marys and mimosas for $14, plus special cocktails mixed with Pitbull’s Voli305 Vodka. 

Speaking of Pitbull, a resident DJ will add to the vibe and there are promises of upcoming guest appearances by talent from the Miami rapper’s “Globalization” Sirius radio station. Does that sound like brunch to you?  


Racks Boca’s “Sunday Edition” 

  • When: Every Sunday starting Feb. 11, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • Where: Racks Downtown Eatery + Tavern, 402 Plaza Real (in Mizner Park), Boca Raton; 561-395-1662
