French Restaurants in Boca Raton

Select Local Merchants

By day, the restaurant occupying 145 NE 4th Avenue goes by the name Crepes by the Sea, a French creperie with fresh-roasted coffee. But at night, it transforms into SWIG Wine Bar, a wine and craft beer lounge serving a melange of French and Italian dishes. Meals might begin with appetizers of sushi-grade tuna tartar with avocado and sun-dried tomato, or a salad decorated with gourmet ingredients such as pears, walnuts, and sweet gorgonzola. Entrees include classic pasta dishes, such as four-cheese gnocchi, as well as specialty creations. Cuts of mustard-crusted salmon plunge into a beurre blanc sauce, and truffle mashed potatoes pair nicely with grilled rib eye steak. On Wednesdays, guests can follow an in-depth exploration of both the food and wine menus with regional pairings, and on Thursdays, live music sets the scene more pleasantly than someone loudly narrating each diner's movements.

Crêpe Maker’s vast menu of sweet and savory crêpes whisks palates away to the cobbled streets of Paris, where the tastes of sizzling fruits and cheese coalesce with the aromas of pan-fried butter. A Louvre-worthy assortment of veggie crêpes features sculpted wonders of tomato, cheese, and basil ($5.95–$6.95), while an El Rancho breakfast crêpe entices stick-wielding tongues with a plated piñata full of eggs, salsa, red peppers, onions, blended cheese, and vine-ripened tomatoes ($6.95). Taste buds may revolt against bland fare after beholding the marinated chicken breast and sweet baked ham of the cordon bleu crêpe ($6.95–$7.95), but a sugarcoated Nutella and raspberry duo ($5.95–$6.95) will effectively cool their tempers. Modeled after the street cart creations of Paris, Crêpe Maker’s hand-held fare can be enjoyed while strutting through promenades, sitting with friends, or sword fighting with baguettes.

Crepeteria

Featured on WSVN's Style File, Crepeteria adds a touch of American flair to classic French cuisine with an eclectic menu of sweet and savory crêpes filled with fresh fruits, deli meats, or vegetables. Start mornings off right with the breakfast special, a crêpe-wrapped mélange of ham or bacon, egg, and melted swiss, or swap it for a sweet beginning by wrapping the wafer-thin pancake around vanilla ice cream or a bowl of cereal. The crêpe craftsmen also fold the delicate dough around an assortment of customer-chosen toppings, such as peanut butter and jelly, or sliced apples, raw honey, and melted brie, all of which may be washed down with fresh cups of hand-roasted, small batch Savannah's PERC coffee.

After leaving France behind and settling down in Fort Lauderdale in 2007, owners Gerard and Christine became wistful with memories of their homeland. However, with the love for their new city quickly taking root, the duo decided that, instead of returning to France, they could simply add an authentic touch of the French Riviera to Florida’s culinary landscape. Opening in 2009, St. Tropez Bistro didn't take long to win over new friends and neighbors, winning a 2009 Best French Restaurant award from the readers of DiningGuide and a rating from the food critics at Zagat. To foster that authentic French feel, they added Chef Dominique to their team, letting him craft fresh tuna tartare and spicy lamb sausages with ratatouille to complement the restaurant’s wine list. A crew of experienced, knowledgeable wait staff—many from France, as well—bustles among the art-deco advertisements and accordion-playing Eiffel Towers that help complete the French Riviera vibe.

At a young age, Laurent Tasic helped his mother run the kitchen at a bed and breakfast, watched his grandmother bake fresh bread over a wood fire, and created white wine from fresh-picked grapes. Yet despite his early start in the culinary arts, Laurent didn’t foresee cooking in his future. In fact, it wasn’t until after earning a degree in industrial architecture and spending a few months on the job, that the future chef would realize his true calling.

Although he spent many years at the helm of swanky restaurants in Paris, Monaco, Monte Carlo, and Fort Lauderdale—preparing elegant and pricey meals for the likes of Prince Albert and film star Michael Caine—Laurent decided to trade in the glitz and glam for reasonable prices and low-key clientele. In 1998, he took over Sage Cafe, where today he continues to run the kitchen and churn out gourmet French feasts, such as coq au vin, steak maurice, and roast duck, all chased by his famously decadent crème brûlée and hand-selected wines. He oversees a brunch as well, during which the chef poaches eggs and folds savory ingredients into fresh-made crepes, also known as the envelopes of food.
