Refurbished Farmer’s Table reopens in Boca

Farmer’s Table won’t have to worry about social distancing when the popular healthy food restaurant reopened Wednesday June 10.

They rebuilt the entire dining room with 6 feet apart seating. And the restaurant was already known for al fresco tables overlooking the adjacent Wyndham hotel pool. “Our whole back wall opens to the patio, so we can seat over 200 socially distanced,” said co-owner Joey Giannuzzi. They can put tables under covered porticos, too, he added.

Instead of just shutting down on orders March 17, they decided to use the time for a needed redo. “When else would we get the opportunity to do all these things,” said the former chef who opened with Mitchell Robbins on Military Trail and 19th Street in 2013. Their North Palm Beach location is already open, and between the two, rehired 100 furloughed staffers, he said.

In Boca, they replaced ceilings in the kitchen, wall coverings and new floors in the front of the house took three weeks to install, he said. They changed out every piece of equipment older than two years. “This was our investment in the future,” he said.

What distinguished the restaurant from the beginning was their farm-to-table food. “We specialize in conscious cooking with no butter, no cream and reduced salt, but still maintaining the flavor profile,” he said.

“We’re already taking reservations,” Giannuzzi said about their patrons. “As we keep going, we want to open with our best foot forward.’’

They’re still doing takeout, curbside and catering. And Farmer’s Table Express has stayed open for grab-and-go and vacuum-sealed meals, desserts, beer, wine and ingredients. “I’m Italian, so the pomodoro sauce is my mother’s recipe,” Giannuzzi said on a sneak peek of the restaurant’s redo.
