I would have liked to include a photo here but the website of this chain doesn’t avail you of many – except for cheesecakes. I’m into food, not desserts, and I definitely haven’t been to that place for dessert – so here goes.
I was freaked out by the Cheesecake Factory in Houston many years ago and didn’t return. For some reason I ventured into their Boca Raton location some time ago. (The reason for the freak out? The Houston locataion was playing opera music, which I TOTALLY detest. And they were quite unapologetic/accomodating about it. So I steered clear for many years.)
Moving on – the Boca Raton location has been a wonderful find for me.
Not only do I like their food but the decor is magical. See their website for more details – but basically, art deco, wonderful.
Their Boca location is also huge, and most often very full! Quite a feat to pull off.
Last Sunday I visited and got my usual – a massive Cobb Salad that really would be big enough for two meals, but it’s so delicious I always finish it (and don’t eat dinner). Accompanied by a Blue Moon and warm brown bread – delicious.
This time around I noticed a lot of things on the menu I’d definitely like to try, like three types of cooked salmon in one dish!
In fact the menu is so eclectic I thought it might be a good place to take a date to, despite the fact that because of it’s vastness I’d more considered the Cheesecake Factory of more a cafe type place. But that kind of menu can inspire some serious eating. I should have asked if they have a wine list. I guess so.
Lastly they played very muted jazz music – wonderful! Definitely a place I like returning to.
