For residents of Moderne Boca, the area’s first contemporary-designed neighborhood in the heart of town, endless dining options surround including the option to cook up some healthy dishes in our designer-appointed kitchens. Boasting a high-end appliance collection, single-handle pull-out sprayer faucet, and beautiful quartz countertops, prepping and cooking is a breeze. Looking to eat farm-to-fork at home? Moderne Boca is just a few minutes away from a stop at the local green market where you can pick up fresh produce and organic products.
Today, we’re focusing on the farm-to-table movement that has grown in popularity in South Florida. While harvest fresh dining is rooted in tradition, the area’s finest chefs are taking us back to the basics with extraordinary flair. Farm-fresh fare is also packed with the best nutrients, are chemical free, and just plain taste good.
Here are three local options located just minutes away from Moderne Boca:
At Farmer’s Table Boca, food is served that has been sourced cleanly and responsibly so you know you are eating the best the planet has to offer. They take pride in offering food free of any chemical, hormone, pesticide or antibiotics from proteins. They call it their “never-ever” menu.
Fresh, healthy and delicious” is the motto at this Boca hotspot. Not only does Farmer’s Table get most of its ingredients locally, but it also cooks them in the healthiest possible way. The chefs never cook with fryers or microwaves or use any butter or cream in their recipes. Their recipes also use two-thirds less sodium than traditional restaurants.
Just north of Boca in the Downtown Delray area, is Max’s Harvest. A crafted experience to the max, this local hotspot was created from a vision of a few guys with simple beliefs and strong values. They use meat from animals that were raised humanely and free of steroids, growth hormones & antibiotics. They use seafood caught or raised without damaging the ecosystem. They treat these products responsibly and prepare them simply.
Max’s Harvest chefs have forged bonds and created relationships with vegetable farmers from Delray, Boynton & Loxahatchee, as well as many other vegetable & fruit farmers throughout the state. They have sourced a cattle rancher in Clewiston who raises the Akaushi breed, a Wagyu cow from Japan, and they have also located a pig farmer in Avon Park who raises Hereford pigs, a heritage breed of pork and another rancher from Deland that raises grass fed lamb.
Max’s Harvest believes, food tastes naturally delicious when grown with care, harvested at precisely the right moment and delivered to the kitchen directly from the source. Fresh ingredients delight the senses and are the essence of great cooking. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the sheer pleasure of seasonal, locally-grown ingredients and the simple, sophisticated flavors that result when you let the land speak for itself.
Eat seasonally, shop locally, conserve and recycle, plant a garden and always enjoy the pleasures of the Harvest!
