New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

This historic Delray Beach house has over the years become South Florida's de facto hangout for the hip, the eclectic, the tattooed, and the wacky. Its nightly live music, entertainment, magic shows, and psychic blowouts are upstaged only by the place's almost supernal level of texture. From the gravel-lined front yard with tiki torches and tree-house-inspired tables to the Dali-esque artwork hanging on the old plaster walls, Dada is thick with visual flavor. What comes out of the kitchen is less inspiring. Caprese salad, bluefin tuna tartare, grilled Brie, meat loaf -- much of the menu reads like it's stuck in the '90s. Nightly specials veer north of $30 and include the same mashed potatoes and vegetable that accompanies every plate. Still, the hand-muddled mojitos are killer, and the scene is still a blast after all these years.

    Although they have not yet played at DaDa's this is a band that should not be missed. I first heard them play 2 summers ago at a few festivals in PA. They were wonderful and the songs they sing are meaningful and heart-felt.

    Go with an appetite and be prepared for some amazing tastes. Service is exceptional, wine list is pretty darn good too. Nice relaxed atmosphere, great place to eat outdoors when the weather is right. Sunday brunch is always a good bet when you can catch it. Price is moderate, but it's EASY to get carried away with wanting to try the whole menu.

    A hip and charming restaurant located in Downtown Delray. Inspired by the Dada cultural movement, the decor in this place is like none you will find elsewhere. The menu is well thought out and usually delish (although I have had some misses). During snowbird season you definitely need to make a reservation on weekends.

    Best restaurant in Delray. Always a good experience. I order the grilled brie appetizer every time. Best mojitos in the city!

    You must grab a table outside in their magical wrap around garden (Fido is welcome too) and enjoy the excellent service and the fantastic food – love the Grill Cheese and the Glazed Salmon.
