Gary Rack's Farmhouse Kitchen
204 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561-266-3642, FarmHousekitchenDelray.com
Gary Rack has converted his 1-year-old Fat Rooster restaurant to the second location of Farmhouse Kitchen, self-professed as seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced.
"The overwhelming response from Gary Rack's Farmhouse Kitchen in Boca Raton has led us to rebrand our Southern concept in the heart of Atlantic Avenue," Rack says. "With a larger space for prep, storage and fresh made-to-order cooking, we can provide an expanded menu for our Delray clientele."
Those exclusive items, such as sweet pea-avocado guacamole ($12), sweet potato-crusted portobello ($18), shrimp street tacos ($19) and Heritage pork chop ($24), complement signatures, such as zucchini chips ($10), buffalo-style cauliflower ($10) and nut-and-seed crusted chicken ($19.50). A separate menu features 20 local veggies, such as kale-apple slaw ($7).
The Bloody Rooster with bourbon and vodka — a bloody mary rendition — harks back to the previous restaurant($12).
The indoor/outdoor bar is still here, but the mix-matched furniture is gone, and green fabrics now grace the chairs. Mason jars canned in-house are displayed among the reclaimed wood setting and bark wall.
Lunch and dinner are served daily, plus weekend brunch.
