(PRESS RELEASE)_Boca Raton, FL, July 6, 2021 – Narbona, a specialty food market and restaurant, will open its third U.S. location at Boca Center in the 9,000 square foot space formerly occupied by Joseph’s Classic Market. Boca Center is located at 5150 Town Center Circle in Boca Raton.
Recently the owner of Boca Center, Barings, announced that the center’s office towers and shops are undergoing a multi-million dollar refresh with a vibrant new look. Other new tenants include Kitchen Renovations Perfected, offering “under one roof” kitchen and bathroom design, which opened in May, and Vegan Fine Body, purveyors of high-quality exclusively plant based face and body care products, nutritional supplements and vegan sundries, which opened in June. Additional new tenants will be announced in the coming weeks.
Narbona, a family-owned business, produces many of its items at its farm in Uruguay, where they manage a winery and food production company with an extensive line of natural products. Their specialty food market and restaurant concept at Boca Center will bring the items straight from its farm and will serve seated breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The menu features an expansive breakfast and brunch menu offering everything from acai bowls and avocado toast to pancakes and parfait. The lunch and dinner menus will offer a variety of tapas, cheese boards, salads and sandwiches, Uruguayan-style pizza, as well as entrees including Grilled Branzino, Ahi Tuna, Grilled Salmon, New York Strip Steak, Roasted Chicken, and a variety of pastas.
The gourmet market will offer its premium wines, beer, cheese, organic vegetables, prosciutto, milk, yogurt and its famed dulce de leche. Narbona will also feature spices, bread, pasta, and jam, fish, baked goods and pre-cooked “grab and go” items.
Narbona’s first U.S. location opened recently in Key Biscayne and owner Jeronimo Cantón is excited about the space the Boca Raton location will offer, allowing them to provide guests with specialty kiosks showcasing their prosciutto, ice cream and cheese along with demonstrations of how they make their products. The Boca Raton location will open in early 2022, followed by its Coconut Grove location.
“We are thrilled to bring the tastes and aromas from our farm to Boca Raton,” said Mr. Cantón. “The Boca Raton community has a dynamic culinary palette, and we’re honored to add to the diversity of international offerings with our extensive selection of Uruguayan-inspired food and wines. We want to transport diners and shoppers to the Uruguayan countryside.”
The lease was brokered by Lindsey Alexander of Fimiani Development, representing the landlord, and Jeff Sussman of Sussman Restaurant Brokerage, representing Narbona.
The announcements come on the heels of a number of new dining, beauty and retail tenants including Vivo Pizza + Pasta, Peter’s Place Hair & Color, Agalia Fine Jewelers, Waxing the City, and Namaste Nail Sanctuary.
“With the addition of Narbona, and our other new tenants, Boca Center is becoming a local hot spot for Boca Raton’s residents and tourists,” said Lindsey Alexander of Fimiani Development. “It’s great to see so many people returning to some of their favorite businesses and trying new ones at Boca Center.”
"As our client, Narbona, expands into the U.S. they are seeking markets that attract discerning diners and shoppers," said Jeff Sussman, President of Sussman Restaurant Brokerage. "Boca Raton is an ideal city for Narbona and Boca Center, with its history as a destination for fine restaurants and retailers, was the perfect location."
