As season approaches, so does the grand openings of these restaurants coming to downtown Delray Beach! Here’s what we have to look forward to in the upcoming months!
Louie Bossi at 32 E. Atlantic Avenue
We said goodbye to 32 East back in May to make way for Louie Bossi, a popular Italian eatery from West Palm Beach’s Big Time Restaurant Group, which operates City Oyster and Rocco’s Tacos on the Ave. Louie Bossi already has two locations: Fort Lauderdale, which opened a few years ago, and Boca Raton, which opened in 2017.
Louie Bossi is known for its fun atmosphere, Neapolitan style pizzas, and appealing architecture. Everything is made in-house, including the breads, numerous types of pasta and desserts. According to Big Time Restaurant Group founder Todd Herbst, “Louie Bossi’s looks like 1940s Rome had an affair with 1940s Lower East Side in New York City. Whimsical light fixtures, a massive turn of the century oak fireplace and 500-year-old stone gargoyles complete the mood.”
Tin Roof at 8 E. Atlantic Avenue
In the space that was formerly Smoke BBQ will come Tin Roof, a Nashville-based bar and southern-inspired restaurant chain that’s centered around live music and currently has 14 other locations nationwide. This will bring a major music venue to the Avenue, as Tin Roof will be leasing both the 3,500-square-foot restaurant space and the 3,000-square-foot outdoor patio next to it, the largest patio on Atlantic Avenue. Tin Roof is expected to open in spring or early summer 2019.
The Wine Room at 411 E. Atlantic Avenue
Coming to the space that was formerly Cafe Martier, The Wine Room will showcase an assortment of over 200 hand-selected wines that can be sampled by 1oz, 2.5oz or 5oz pour sizes on state-of-the-art wine dispensing machines. It will also will feature a full kitchen serving meals, starting with brunch at 11 a.m. daily. The spot where The Arcade Room previously was (toward the back of the space) will be turned into a full bar serving a range of liquor, including high-end scotch and vodka.
The Wine Room already has a location in Orlando, which opened in 2006. This location recently earned the “Best of Award of Excellence” from the Wine Spectator, which has only been given to 850 establishments worldwide.
iPic at 4th and 5th Delray
The structure is up, the windows were recently put in, and according to the Palm Beach Post, the new iPic in downtown Delray will finish construction earlier than expected in 2019. The theater complex, dubbed 4th and 5th Delray, features eight screens, office and retail space, plus a parking garage.
Delray City Market at 33 SE 3rd Street
A 30,000-square-foot food hall is coming just about half a block south of Atlantic Avenue. Dubbed Delray City Market, the upscale foodie village from real estate developer Craig Menin and South Florida restaurateur Dennis Max will have 30 vendors, 25-foot-high ceilings, live music and art. The four-story building will also include a 3,000-square-foot rooftop garden and a three-level indoor garage with 200 parking spaces. It is expected to open in summer 2019.
