Butcher Block Grill, the all natural steakhouse located in the Fountains Center in Boca Raton, has just launched a new menu.

New appetizers include French Onion Flat Bread, Mom’s Meatball,
Polenta and Crab Won Tons, Mole’ Frit, PEI Mussels, Corn and Crab
Chowder, Boston Bib Salad and Fried Green Tomatoes.
New entrees include Rack of Lamb, Beef & Veal Bolognaise, Braised
Short Ribs, Seared Black Grouper, Grilled Mahi and Shrimp and
Eggplant Française. New sides include Sweet Potato with Spiced Cream
and a new Creamed Spinach recipe.

Butcher Block Grill only uses the highest quality 100% natural aged
beef, along with fresh poultry, shellfish and locally grown produce.
“We combine all natural ingredients with a unique fusion of
Mediterranean flavors and American steakhouse classics to create a
memorable and healthy dining experience,” Mike Zikri, who operates
the restaurant, said.

Everything was so delicious, it is difficult to choose which dishes I enjoyed most. IF I did have to choose.. I  would say that my top 3 are the won ton, bolognaise and the short rib.
