Sitting in a Royal Palm Place courtyard with a view of sparkling lights. Dining on tastings of gluten free duck taco and brined lamb chops, the only staples on a creatively changing menu.

The perfect setting for a first restaurant foray at Boca’s intimate TwentyTwenty Grille.

The restaurant is open for dinner only from 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Diners with a sophisticated palette for subtle flavors and presentation have already discovered them. They’ve occupied a niche for seven years and expanded outdoor dining past their overhang with ceiling fans.

But it’s the other kind of fan loyalty that has kept them going. “The community supports us,” owners Rhonda and her husband executive chef Ron Weisheit said.

The in-person menu has nine a la carte  “beginnings.” Nine entrees range from meats to fish and a pasta, and six sides. Like most restaurants now, TwentyTwenty Grille also offers a separate to-go and three-course curbside pickup menu.

Chef Ron likes to change it up and expects to serve more game meat like wild boar and venison in November. Also planned is a diver scallop dish with coconut rice and homemade nutella wasabi. “We always want to give people something special,” he said.

The portions shown in the photos are just tastings that also included a grilled octopus appetizer and yellowtail snapper puttanesca.

Homemade intermezzo sherbet had four flavors: lemon, mint, pineapple and cauliflower. Dessert is always homemade, too. They even make their own ice cream.

Server Matheus Oliveira knows the wine list, most organically grown, by the glass or the bottle. New to us were tastes of Leefield Station, a New Zealand sauvignon blanc with a kick. And Red Schooner malbec with grapes from Argentina.

The atmosphere’s always enhanced by music drifting out of Funky Biscuit on the courtyard, the chef said. The music venue is reopening with free admission first come, first serve on Nov. 5.

The Weisheits met 25 years ago. She was a pastry chef then. Now she runs the family business. They have two kids in Boca publics schools. There’s even have a door from where they met on the dining room wall. Rhonda made sure we saw that and heard the back story before we left.
