Time for a fiesta! New Mexican restaurant opening in Boca Raton


The newest Mexican restaurant coming to suburban Boca Raton rocks this festive tagline: “Life is a fiesta – eat it up!” 

Blue Moon Mexican Café slips into the former Mykonos Greek Restaurant location, south of Glades Road and just east of Powerline Road. The cantina “within two weeks,” according to a publicist for the Blue Moon restaurant group, which operates locations in New York and New Jersey. 

What is there to eat up at this fiesta? The menu lists Mexican-American favorites, from dips (guacamole, queso) to nachos to fajitas and taquitos. Something one doesn’t find at some other Mexican chain spots: Blue Moon serves three types of chili, including a vegetarian option. 

In addition, there are burgers, a range of quesadillas and burritos, entrée salads, eight taco options (including vegan cauliflower tacos and black bean/avocado tacos), as well as traditional combo plates. 

The small Blue Moon chain was launched 25 years ago in New York City and went on to open suburban locations in New York and New Jersey. The Boca Raton location will be the chain’s fifth and its first in Florida. 

The main Blue Moon Mexican Café website offers online ordering for takeout and delivery. It also offers a glimpse of the types of events and specials offered at the other locations. They include live music, ladies night and Mother’s Day brunch as well as graduation parties and community events. 

Blue Moon Mexican Café: Opening soon at 6897 SW 18th St., Boca Raton

Second, the man who descends from the caboose every few minutes to serve his customers may very well be the happiest chef in Northern California. “How’s your wife?”...

The ideal aperitif: Good vermouth, cool and fragrant

One summer evening a few years ago, I was standing in the Napa Valley kitchen of Steve Matthiasson, a farmer and winemaker, when he handed me a tumbler filled with amber liquid and a fat cube of ice. It was not what I was expecting from Matthiasson, who, with his wife, Jill Klein Matthiasson, makes a range of wonderfully pure and refreshing wines from...

When a cook such as Rima Kasm prepares for Ramadan - the month-long period during which Muslims fast during daylight hours - she knows that planning is even more essential than usual. "I will write down what I want to cook each day and get everything I need," says the Newport Beach, California, resident who came to America from her native...
