301 Via De Palmas, Boca Raton
I have never been to Italy. When I go, I hope the food everyone comes back raving about is half as good as what’s on Chef Marco Pindo’s menu here. Try the steaming bowl of succulent gnocchi with clams, lobster and scallops. Or the branzino, smothered in scallops, clams and shrimp, elegantly served on a fish-shaped copper plate. Sitting at the chef’s table, watching Chef Pindo grate black truffles on a fresh ravioli appetizer, I can’t think of a better place served by a more generous and talented cook. And I wonder if I really need to go to Italy at all.
