Boca Raton, FL 33432
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
The dwellers of Boca Raton might occasionally wear white after Labor Day or buy an Audi instead of a Mercedes, but Boca is probably not the first place you think of when you think rebellion. But in mid-2012, Michael Saperstein and Evan David, the chef-and-GM duo behind Deerfield Beach's highly regarded (and justly so) Charm City Burgers and El Jefe Luchador, jolted Boca's staid dining scene awake with the opening of Rebel House. The restaurant's surprisingly small dining room is a study in bold, artsy, neo-industrial/flea market chic, jammed like a mosh pit with mismatched tables and antique-y chairs; graffiti lines the walls. As for the food, in New York or San Francisco, Rebel House's inventive, tapas-style menu of American comfort food on Mars may not seem rebellious at all, but in Boca, it’s like Mitt Romney flashing gang signs and firing up a giant spliff. Small plates under $10 include pork belly tater tots, tiny reuben sandwiches made with house-“corned” duck, and rock shrimp tacos. Entrées come in full and half portions and include brisket meat loaf and “OG Recipe Fried Chicken,” three pieces of crunchy/juicy/greaseless fried chicken sandwiched between cornmeal-cheddar waffles and drizzled with sweet/porky candied bacon maple syrup, with a lovely watermelon/pear tomato salad as a side. Desserts are superdecadent sundaes and minipies.
