    Bogart’s Bar & Grille Introduces Over a Dozen New Menu Items

Bogart’s Bar & Grille Introduces Over a Dozen New Menu Items

Hello Foodie Friends,

Today’s post will highlight a media dinner I attended last week at Bogart’s Bar & Grille, where we were treated to a lovely 5 course (12 item) tasting menu arranged for us in one of their 4 private banquet rooms and skillfully prepared and presented by Executive Chef Aaron Goldberg. The last time I was here was in May when I came with friend and fellow food blogger Shaina for a Girls Night Out, dinner and a movie. To read about this adventure, check out Shaina’s review.  It was then, that me and my taste buds fell in love with Chef Aaron’s cooking.

With training in classical French cuisine and a touch of modern influence, Chef Aaron’s dishes are packed with flavor and are consistently on point. Aaron, originally from New Jersey, got started in the industry at the tender age of 13 and later moved to Florida to attend the Florida Culinary Institute. After receiving his culinary degree he went on to work in various kitchens including the one at The Seagate Hotel & Spa in Delray Beach, Admiral’s Cove Country Club in Jupiter and Cafe du Park in Lake Worth prior to joining the Rapoport Restaurant Group in 2010 as sous chef at Deck 84 also in Delray Beach. Chef Aaron is a consummate professional who takes his craft seriously and embodies what he does whole heartedly. When he’s not in the kitchen, he enjoys working out, going to the beach and all things food-related.  Says Aaron, “this isn’t just a job. This is what I live for.”

On this evening’s menu, we were treated to 7 of the 15 new dishes created by Chef Aaron as well as 5 of Bogart’s classics.

Oceans 234 – Take a Look at the #New234

Hello Foodie Friends,

Let’s face it, many of the restaurants that sit on pristine real estate donning the best ocean views fall a little short on delivering a high quality dining experience. Customers have come to expect this norm of sacrificing one for the other. Well not any more. Oceans 234 in Deerfield Beach has literally and figuratively broken ground and paved the way for a new standard that doesn’t call for sacrificing on quality for the sake of having a spectacular view.


I have been a fan of Oceans 234 for several years now and was super excited when they finally re-opened after undergoing a $1.8 million remodeling. I was also thrilled to receive an invitation to attend a media dinner there to check the new space out and sample some of the new menu items created by Chef Vic.

With 75 percent of the menu items being brand-new, Chef Victor Franco has been busy for the better part of a year creating new dishes, including a separate gluten-free menu. New signature cocktails and a new wine program are also new additions that are sophisticated yet approachable. What you will experience at the 200-seat Oceans 234 is fresh caught seafood varieties, sushi, tender steaks, poultry, entrée salads, a handmade dessert menu, and full liquor bar. “The craft cocktails are unique & playful” boasts server Josh. “We like to play with our food”.

Returning guests as well as new diners are wowed by the new openness and beauty of the views now devoid of any column obstruction and a completely new interior decor which has been outfitted with a sea-inspired theme which is a perfect compliment to it’s environment. There’s a new private dining area that can accommodate up to 50 guests with Nano doors opening up to the patio. Even when the Nano doors […]
