New York Prime Boca Raton Steakhouse New York Prime Boca Raton

Every item on our menu is the best quality money can buy. Because our product specs cause our costs to be so high, our menu prices are not cheap. However we refuse to use gimmicks to cut costs – particularly in buying, aging and cutting of meat. If you’re interested in some of the details why our quality is the best – better than our so-called “prime” steakhouse competition – flip over to the back of the menu.

Essential to a total dining experience. We bring your food to the table at a pace that is comfortable – not too slow or too fast. If you wish to speed up or slow down, please let us know. We are here for your enjoyment and will strive in every way to graciously serve you as you wish.

We operate our steakhouse to please our customers – not our owners or our staff. Should you encounter any unpleasantness from anyone, please ask for me.

Chima Brazilian Steakhouse Chima Brazilian Steakhouse

Chima Steakhouse-named after chimarrao, a traditional drink of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, that symbolizes hospitality and friendship-certainly lives up to its name. Legend has it, in South Brazil traditional gauchos (cowboys) would consume a diet that consisted almost entirely of beef. The meat was seasoned, placed on skewers, and slow cooked over a wood burning flame. Historically, gauchos were known for their generosity and hospitality.

The first Chima restaurant originated in Uberlandia, Brazil located in the state of Minas Gerais. In 2004, the Silva family introduced a new style of dining and superior service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Chima combined traditional Brazilian rodizio and excellent service with an elegant setting.

Olive Oil of the world Chef Rasheed Shihada

Ever since he could reach a stove, Chef Rasheed Shihada has been cooking. “I started out helping my mother by peeling shrimp and stirring pasta sauce.“ He recalls. Next came his first introduction to a cookbook, the iconic American classic; “The Joy of Cooking.“ Recently grounded as an adolescent, his mother showed him the book and suggested he cook dinner to occupy his time after doing homework. “It was probably the best time I ever got grounded,“ Chef Rasheed tells everyone. Throughout high school he propelled himself into the world of culinary arts culminating his passion for cuisine with a degree from the Florida Culinary Institute in 2002. After graduating he spent four months traveling throughout Paris, London, Ireland and Italy absorbing the fusion of world cuisines blended by so many different cultures and ethnicities. Specific time spent with family and friends in Italy brought “one of the most amazing culinary educations that one could hope for,” he emphasizes. After working in large commercial kitchens for chain restaurants he decided it was time to move on and to pursue a formal college degree in Political Science. Working as a political consultant for a number of years he returned to the culinary world catering parties for family and friends in his spare time as a hobby. From there he began building a serious “word of mouth” private chef business. In 2008, he joined forces with his mother’s hobby: an olive oil business. In 2012, he left the political arena for good and together with his mother they have grown their hobbies and passion for food into their business, Olive Oil of the World based in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Just recently Chef Rasheed finished building a kitchen funded by donations from a charity set up by the company at the Pace Center for Girls in West Palm Beach, FL. Starting in December he will be instrumental in teaching at risk teen girls how to cook healthy for themselves and their families. “I have been able to share my passion for fine food and healthy eating with people in my hometown and I feel truly blessed to be in a position that most chefs only dream about. This is why I do what I do, because food is without a doubt the most fundamental part of our human existence and as a chef I hope to do my part to improve that existence.”

Cabo Flats Delray Beach Cabo Flats Chef Antonio Brodziak

Chef Antonio Brodziak has displayed his culinary talents at internationally renowned restaurants in New York, San Francisco, Denver and Acapulco. A native of Mexico City, Brodziak grew up cooking traditional Mexican food with his grandmother. He received formal culinary training at the Universidad Ibero Americana. After graduation, the young Brodziak apprenticed under Alicia D’Angeli, who was then president of the Mexican Culinary Association and an internationally recognized chef. With D’Angeli, Brodziak learned the subtleties of preparing classic Mexican cuisine.

In 1994, Brodziak worked at Acapulco’s Madieras, one of the top 20 restaurants in Mexico. There, he was exposed to his native cuisine in fusion with other international flavors. The following year, Brodziak moved to the U.S. It was while working at Savan in New York in 1995 that he became a student of French and Asian cooking techniques. The classic training allowed him to refine his palate and translate his international sensibilities into new masterpieces in his native cuisine that became the foundations of contemporary Mexican.

Working as a chef with New York restaurateur Richard Sandoval (Tamayo, Pampano, Isla and Zengo), Brodziak helped open Sandoval’s signature restaurant, Maya. Impressed, Sandoval made Brodziak chef de cuisine, making him an integral part of Sandoval’s team. Maya earned two stars from The New York Times, and Zagat rated Maya one of the top 50 restaurants in New York City.

He now features his unique “contemporary Mexican” cuisine at Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar in Delray Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Brodziak creates his dishes using fresh, traditional Latin ingredients and elements, but with his own unique twist. Brodziak has been with Cabo Flats since it opened its doors in February 2010.

Lime Fresh Mexican Grill Lime Fresh Mexican Grill Salsa Bar

"It's not your ordinary Oompah place!"

“Fresh” “Healthy” “Organic” “Sustainable” We’re sick of green-washed buzzwords you hear a lot but don’t mean much at all.

So, here’s our no-quote truth:
Our food is freakin’ good. It’s how we went from one bumpin’ burrito shop in hell-raising, health-conscious South Beach to over 20 (… and counting) along the East Coast.

Why’s our food so good?
We use the best ingredients available, delivered daily and prepared on-site for all our homemade salsa, sauces and sides. Plus, we really care if you like it. We make your meal however you want it, bring it out to you and bring it back if it’s not perfect. We’re cool like that.
We also have vegetarian, low-carb and low-fat options. But we’ll be the first to tell you that a mound of sour cream on a low-carb wrap… still has a mound of sour cream. So keep it in check Madam Denial.
So, yeah. If you want delicious, freshly-prepared Mexican food with a precocious, often-offends attitude … then welcome. We like you already.

Steve's Wood Fired Pizza Steve's Wood Fired Pizza Boca Raton

I have a passion for pizza that began when I was growing up in New York. After working in the industry, however, I realized that most pizzas were undercooked and not very exciting. I decided to create a pizza that was "well done" in both senses of the phrase. I feel confident that our pizza exceeds what I had hoped for when I first began refining recipes.

It takes a commitment to service, dedication to quality, skills and attitude. Not just any pizza, but pizza that is "well done" in every sense.
