Coming soon: Emmy Squared Pizza to dish Detroit-style in Fort Lauderdale; Madame Tang’s bringing modern Chinese to Boca Raton

When it comes to food, South Florida is a great place to be. So many new restaurants open nearly every day. Here’s what’s coming soon to a city near you.

Emmy Squared Pizza, Fort Lauderdale

Sure, their first South Florida entry is perhaps late to the local Detroit-style trend, but this Brooklyn-born chain is hardly a shrine to just square pizza. The 98-seat pizzeria (70 indoor, 28 on the patio) in Victoria Park, which replaces the former Spatch Peri-Peri Chicken, also slings Grandma- and New York-style pies, half-pound hamburgers and craft cocktails, salads and spicy chicken sandwiches. But the bestseller at Emmy, which expects to debut Nov. 24, remains the Detroit-style, a focaccia-like pizza with lacy cheese crust fired in a rectangular tray. Other pies are named after Italian patron saints, including “The Sopranos” character Artie Bucco (garlic confit cloves, caramelized onions, basil) and late VH1 “Mob Wives” personality Big Ang (vodka sauce, ricotta, double pecorino, Italian sausage, banana peppers). Finally, there’s the Le Big Matt Burger, a half-pound double patty on a pretzel bun, plated with waffle-cut fries. A second location is planned in Coral Gables later this winter. 468 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale; 754-296-0076;

Livello, Coral Springs

A new restaurant from chef Bruno Silva (Tavolino Della Notte in Coral Springs) will replace the short-lived Osteria Mazzi sometime this winter on North University Drive. Silva, who grew up selling popsicles on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, fuses Italian, modern and American cuisine with his menus. (He started his South Florida career in the kitchens of Tavolino.) 2047 N. University Drive, Coral Springs; no website or phone number yet available

Black Jack’s Rum Bar & Grille, Davie

The restaurateur behind the Drunken Taco chain and the late Giovanni’s Coal Fire Pizza is back with this American pub that’s expected to debut in early spring on the ground floor of the new Zona Village apartment complex, across the street from Nova Southeastern University. The 200-seat pub from owner Ted Sabarese will have a full bar along with hamburgers and steaks, although its menu hasn’t been finalized. 3890 Davie Road, Suite 104, Davie;

Whaler’s Catch, Fort Lauderdale

Yet another restaurant under the umbrella of onetime “Big Brother” star and restaurateur Memphis Garrett, this seafood kitchen and oyster bar plans to debut in December on Fort Lauderdale Beach, near the Parrot Lounge and Primanti Bros. The docking of Whaler’s Catch follows a recent pair of closings from Garrett Hospitality Group, including Ya Mas! Taverna on Las Olas Boulevard (website says it is relocating) and the short-lived Point Break, which debuted in February. 905 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale;  

The Kebab Shop, Miramar

This California-based Mediterranean eatery specializes in customizable kebabs in grilled and rotisserie forms, and served in a wrap, in a box or on a plate. It’s scheduled to open this winter inside the Miramar Park Place strip mall on Red Road, joining a recently opened Flanigan’s and a soon-to-open Duck Donuts. The menu also has lamb, beef, chicken thighs, saffron chicken tenderloin doner, along with steak and falafel and “crave fries” (topped with feta, garlic yogurt and pickled onions). The chain has carved out 34 other locations in California and Texas, with future South Florida outposts also heading to Coral Springs (1280 N. University Drive) and Boynton Beach (1780 N. Congress Ave., Suite 200). 11225 Miramar Parkway, Miramar;

Tutto Mare, Palm Beach

This Mediterranean concept from the Tutto il Giorno restaurant group is being billed as the first Intracoastal waterfront restaurant in Palm Beach. The eatery on the style isle is expected to open next winter at The Royal Poinciana Plaza and is owned by Gabby and Gianpaolo de Felice, the wife-and-husband dining duo behind Tutto il Giorno in Southampton, East Hampton and Sag Harbor, New York. “Our goal with Tutto Mare is to create something chic, comfortable and intimate, balancing architecture with decor and ambiance,” she says. “Tutto Mare will be a place for the community to gather in a fresh environment, while celebrating Palm Beach’s rich history.” 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach

Field of Greens, West Palm Beach

This will be the third Field of Greens in West Palm Beach, joining three others in Palm Beach, North Palm Beach and Wellington. The locally-based brand is owned by Hess Musallet and Myron “Mosie” Miller. This latest iteration of the fine-casual eatery — with a menu centered on salads, wraps, sandwiches, vegan dishes, acai bowls, smoothies and more — intends to open at Phillips Point office building in December, joining a slate of other restaurants that have raced to open in the Flagler Financial District (Harry’s, Adrienne’s Pizzabar, Felice and next year’s Estiatorio Milos). “As we continue to expand in Palm Beach County, this location is special as we are able to serve fresh, health-conscious cuisine to downtown West Palm Beach’s growing business community,” Musallet says. 777 S. Flagler Drive, Suite 108, West Palm Beach; 

Earls Kitchen + Bar, Fort Lauderdale

The second SoFlo location (the other is in Dadeland Mall) plans to open on Las Olas Boulevard next winter. The hard-to-categorize menu created by chef David Wong has a global vibe with tacos, sushi, Cajun chicken, burgers, plant-based dishes, pizza, seafood, steaks and a host of weekend brunch classics. The brand started in 1982 with its first restaurant in Edmonton, Alberta, and is now based in Vancouver. “We are incredibly excited to introduce Earls Kitchen + Bar to the vibrant community of Fort Lauderdale,” says Kristin Vekteris, chief brand officer. 1002 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 

Limani Grille, Boca Raton

This seafood-focused eatery inside Town Center at Boca Raton promises Mediterranean dishes with a focus on Greek cuisines when it opens next spring. This will be the third location for the brand, which can also be found in Commack, N.Y., and Boston. 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton; 

Madame Tang’s, Boca Raton

Celebrity chef Ralph Pagano and Jay Shirodkar have created Madame Tang’s to offer what they promise will be a new, modern take on Chinese cuisine and other Asian favorites. The restaurant inside Town Center at Boca Raton mall is expected to open spring 2024. Early word is that the bar will also have an expansive program. Fans of TV cooking competitions know Pagano for his turns on “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Pressure Cook” and “Iron Chef,” but local foodies know him for his Naked brand: Naked Taco and Naked Crab, which have multiple locations throughout South Florida. 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton; 

Luna Rosa Sandwiches, Delray Beach

It’s been two months since owner David Hunt closed the beloved Sandwiches by the Sea, his nautically themed port-of-call for handhelds a block from the ocean, after 22 years in business. In its place will rise this new sandwicherie from another Delray Beach veteran, Fran Marincola, who has operated casual Italian eatery Caffe Luna Rosa around the corner since 1993. Opening later this winter, the shop is registered to Maricola and business partner Kim Thomas. No menu or website is yet available, but the eatery is expected to offer some of the fresh-baked breads already served at Caffe Luna Rosa. 1214 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach 

A’Lu Mexican Cuisine, Boynton Beach

Richard Charleston and executive chef Wes Newson teamed up for this concept inspired by San Diego/Tijuana street tacos as well as the classic native cuisine of coastal Mexico. There has already been a soft to-go-only opening and the grand opening is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 24. With 82 seats inside and 116 outside, the restaurant overlooks Quantum Lakes. “Whether you are sitting inside or on the patio, your view is only that of a serene lake surrounded by trees,” says Charleston. “You easily forget that you are in South Florida and in the middle of Boynton Beach.” 1080 Gateway Blvd. (in the Quantum Town Center), Boynton Beach; 

Smith & Webster Restaurant and Bar, Coral Springs

The newish restaurant empire of Starex Smith, aka food influencer-blogger “The Hungry Black Man,” grows by one with this soulful American restaurant scheduled to soft-open Saturday, Nov. 18, in the Turtle Crossing plaza at State Road 7 and Wiles Road. This is Smith & Webster’s first outpost after its flagship arrived in North Miami in May 2022, and a partnership from Smith, retired Super Bowl champion Kayvon Webster and pro-basketball player Brandon Knight. (Smith and Knight also opened Southern eatery Brandon’s Bistro last March in Pembroke Pines.) The upscale sit-down, which replaces the Knight-owned Holy Hog Barbecue, will serve entrees including Hawaiian-seasoned, bone-in ribeye; Cajun chicken pasta; braised oxtail lasagna with whipped lemon zest ricotta; 12-hour brined and smoked fire-grilled chicken wings; miso-glazed Scottish salmon; and Ethiopian-spiced branzino. 4372 N. State Road 7, Coral Springs;

Serious Dumplings, Plantation

Replacing the former “fast-fine” restaurant Ovlo Eats, which shuttered earlier this year, is the fourth South Florida location of this dumpling franchise. Registered to franchisee Yang Ruyun, the shop expects to debut this winter in the Plantation Commons strip mall. The restaurant will specialize in dumplings of every ilk — xiaolongbao, pan-fried and steamed — along with noodle and rice bowls, scallion pancakes and squid salad, and dim sum from shrimp siu mai to braised chicken feet. The restaurant joins outposts in Boca Raton (which debuted in May), North Miami and Davie. 7626 Peters Road, Plantation;

B&D Trap, Fort Lauderdale

This 2,500-square-foot pit stop devoted to Texas-style barbecue will smoke up Sistrunk Boulevard sometime this November. The focus, of course, will be brisket by the pound and in sandwich form from hospitality veteran Kevin Rodriguez (The Doral Yard food hall) and pitmaster Orelle Young (The Beast by Todd English in Las Vegas), who competed earlier this year on Food Network Canada’s barbecue competition series “Fire Masters.” The 45-seat counter will also turn out ribs, chicken, pulled pork and turkey, along with sides of mac ‘n’ cheese, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw and cornbread. 1551 NW Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale; 561-382-7944;

Even Keel Fish Shack, Fort Lauderdale

Chef-owners Dave MacLennan and Brad Phillips are setting sail for ritzy restaurant row Las Olas Boulevard with the second location of their seafood spot later this fall. This is the owners’ second foray into Fort Lauderdale: the flagship Even Keel began its life on North Federal Highway under the mast of restaurateur James Dean Max before it jumped ship to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in late 2020. A hub for fresh local fish and greens (they source from Triar Seafood in Hollywood and Swank Specialty Produce in Loxahatchee), the second location will serve stone crabs and house-smoked fish dip, beer-battered spiny lobster bites and conch beignets, and larger entrees including an adult crab grilled cheese (with brie, truffle, blue crab and apple butter), clams carbonara and grilled local swordfish. 1111 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale;

Cafe Americano Supper Club, Boca Raton

Classic meets contemporary Italian at this posh sit-down, which is registered to Christopher Gallo and Joseph Esposito and is expected to debut sometime in winter next to Doris Italian Market, within the Yamato Village strip mall. The old-meets-new dynamic even extends to the decor, with a large chandelier in the dining area and octagonal light fixtures over the bar. That mashup also is reflected in the in-progress menu, which includes seared ahi tuna and pasta al pomodoro, along with salads, cheese appetizers, and vanilla cheesecake and apple pie for dessert. 9101 Lakeridge Blvd., Suite 1, Boca Raton; 561-576-3000;

Cake Daddy’s, Wilton Manors

Cuban-born baker Victor Calderon is the culinary muscle behind this new Wilton Drive bake shop — emphasis on the muscle. A banner facing the Drive depicts the tattooed and shirtless Calderon sporting an apron, triumphantly hoisting a 9-inch cake. The bakery expects to debut sometime in December. Calderon, who immigrated to the states in 2012, says in a GoFundMe post that he originally baked and sold cakes to support himself and his mother while funding his way out of Cuba. No menu is yet available, but the website is filled with images of cupcakes and custom cakes. 2047 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors; 954-361-1239;

Sicilian Oven, Cooper City

The ninth location of this landmark local chain, where pies are wood-fired at 700 degrees, is heading to the Countryside Shops plaza, replacing the storefront once occupied by the late, great Beverly Hills Cafe, which closed in 2021. The 125-seat pizzeria, from owner Ralph Di Salvo, expects to open later this fall. It offers a menu of 17 specialty pies from the square, Grandma-style Nonna to the cheeseless Marie to the New York-style Brooklyn to the Margherita-style Boss. There are also oven-roasted panetta sandwiches and soups (escarole and beans), cervellata (a cheese-and-parsley sausage) and pastas. 5544 S. Flamingo Road, Cooper City;

Pixies on Dixie, West Palm Beach

The short-lived SoSo Cafe lasted a year in the city’s trendy SoSo (South of Southern) nabe before shuttering in April, but that casual healthy-eats spot will live on in spirit with its replacement: Pixies on Dixie. The new eatery – also health-focused – expects to open before the end of the year. Not only has former SoSo chef Cesar Brea been rehired at Pixies, but the new restaurant will carry a few of its predecessors’ dishes, including chicken empanadas and a Mediterranean salad bowl. There will also be herb-marinated chicken sandwiches, acai bowls and chorizo tostadas for brunch. Pixies is co-owned by Hess Musallet, operator of the Field of Greens mini-chain in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Wellington and North Palm Beach. 4802 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-429-5232 “]

Baoshi Food Hall & Bar, Pembroke Pines

A clubby food hall in the Broward suburbs? Believe it: The 148-seat Baoshi, slated to open in December from owner Filbert Ip, replaces the dim sum palace Gold Marquess, which his parents operated for seven years before it closed after Chinese New Year in March 2022. Gold Marquess will live on as one of Baoshi’s five vendors, with a condensed menu of steamed pork dumplings, barbecued pork buns, snow pea tips, wok-fried noodles and ginger-scallion lobster. Other vendors include the first outpost of Fort Lauderdale’s Temple Street Eatery and Gangnam Chikn, which serves Korean fried chicken and bibimbap bowls, plus two TBA vendors handling coffee, desserts, sushi and poke bowls. Meanwhile, Baoshi’s indoor-outdoor Zen Den is a full-liquor bar that will host karaoke nights and serve wines, sakes and cocktails. 8525 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines;

The 10th location of this Illinois-born restaurant chain, known for dishing huge portions of Italian classics, is set to arrive in downtown Boca Raton “this coming fall,” according to a message posted on its website. At 7,700 square feet, the 164-seat restaurant with an exterior bar and patio seating on Palmetto Park Road, comes from restaurateur Alex Dana, whose restaurant group in Chicago’s Little Italy is expanding into Florida for the first time. A Boca menu isn’t yet available, but Chicagoland locations serve pastas including cavatelli cacio e pepe and rigatoni alla vodka, along with NY strip steaks, brick chicken and veal cutlets for entrees, and tiramisu and ricotta cheesecake for dessert. 150 E.

Burtons, which operates 19 locations in eight states, including one in Boca Raton, is registered to John Haggai and Mitchell Kahn.

YOLO Korean BBQ, Tamarac

At 10,000 square feet, this massive all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue house will offer 60 tables with built-in burners and two karaoke rooms when it debuts this fall in the University Commons plaza. It will join an already bustling Korean restaurant row on University Drive, packed with groceries and barbecue joints such as Gabose, ROK and Manna Korean. YOLO, registered to owner Ray Park, will feature barbecued proteins like bulgogi and samgyeopsal, as well as kimchi jjigae (stew) and banchan (basically tiny side dishes) such as gyeranjjim (steamed eggs) and japchae (stir-fried glass noodles). 6800 N. University Drive, Tamarac; no website or phone number yet available

Voodoo Brewery, Oakland Park

Yet another craft brewery is shuffling into the ever-expanding Oakland Park Culinary Arts District, already home to a distillery, a meadery, two breweries, a wine bar and a butcher shop. This growing Pennsylvania-headquartered brewing company, which expects to open this fall, runs on a franchise model, opening taprooms in South Carolina and Nevada, among other states. The Oakland Park outpost – Voodoo’s second in Florida after launching a location in St. Petersburg in April 2022 – comes from franchisee Mark Freher and will feature Lacto-Kooler (a Berliner Weisse), Good Vibes (a West Coast IPA) Empty Calories (American lager) and Where Our Secrets Go (an imperial stout), paired with a food menu of burgers, chicken wings and mac ‘n’ cheese. 3492 NE 12th Ave., Unit B, Oakland Park; “]

Saiko-i Sushi Lounge and Hibachi, Plantation

Before year’s end, this Japanese restaurant and lounge plans to debut inside the city’s Shoppes at Broward plaza on Broward Boulevard. The hibachi comes from husband-and-wife hospitality vets Jason Zheng and Tina Wang (Koi Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Lounge, Coco Sushi Lounge & Bar, Yakitori Sake House), who also operate a Saiko-i in Boca Raton.

Though a lease was reportedly signed in early June, no exact address is yet available.

The Wagyu House, Hallandale Beach

Sometime this fall, the premium meatheads behind online butcher shop Meat N’ Bone and The Wagyu Bar on Miami’s Coral Way will join the fray of trendy restaurants filling the third phase of buzzy Atlantic Village on North Federal Highway. The restaurant, billed as a “casual steakhouse” by owners Luis Mata and Gabriel Llaurado, will offer dozens of rare, dry-aged and high-end steaks. While a full menu is still in the works, the cuts will be sourced from Mata and Llaurado’s Meat N’ Bone online shop, started in 2018. That store offers 300 cuts of meat, poultry and seafood, and has since expanded into brick-and-mortar butcher shops in Coral Springs and Pinecrest. 601 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach;

Mission BBQ, Royal Palm Beach

This pit joint —- the second in Palm Beach County — is coming this year to the Boulevard Shoppes at Cypress Key plaza, adding to the flurry of new restaurants heading to the once-sleepy Southern Boulevard drag. The Maryland-born chain is a hub of pork and patriotism where, at lunchtime each day, TV screens burst to life with the American flag and customers rise to sing The Star-Spangled Banner. Its menu is built around entrees of Texas-style brisket, pulled pork, sausage, turkey, salmon, pulled chicken “bay-b-back” ribs and spare ribs, along with sides such as coleslaw, green beans, baked beans and mac-n-cheese. 11929 Southern Blvd., Royal Palm Beach;

This Mexican-American cantina from restaurateur Anthony Monticello is the answer to the never-asked question: What happens if I mash up “Napoleon Dynamite” and tacos? Expected to open this fall in The Shoppes at Village Pointe, it will replace the former The D in Delicious chocolate shop. If the name sounds familiar, Monticello’s Where Hospitality originally brought his taco stand from Manhattan to Delray Beach Market in 2021 but left a year later amid rising rents and a rebranding of the food hall. The new shop will serve tacos de birria, along with Mexican street foods in a sports bar-style setting. 6018 SW 18th St., Suite C9, Boca Raton;

Livia Bar & Grill, Fort Lauderdale

This Southern Italian restaurant expects to open in Fort Lauderdale’s exploding Flagler Village nabe this fall.

Andrews Ave., Unit 106, Fort Lauderdale

Ya Mas! Taverna, West Palm Beach

More than a year after hospitality honcho and “Big Brother” star Memphis Garrett (No Man’s Land, Point Break) brought his first Greek restaurant to tony Las Olas Boulevard, Ya Mas! will expand into its first sister taverna on West Palm Beach’s bustling Clematis Street restaurant row. Expected to open in late 2023, the new Ya Mas! will dish an identical menu of modern and classic fare, such as dolmades and muhammara, bechamel short rib, and loukaniko with melted leek and pepperoncini. 216 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 

Topgolf, Pompano Beach

This three-level golfing attraction touting a restaurant-bar, rooftop terrace, patio and 102 climate-controlled hitting bays will anchor a new 223-acre project being built near the former Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park. Topgolf, slated to open in late 2023, hasn’t unveiled its Pompano Beach menu yet, but its Miami Gardens location serves American pub fare: burgers and buttermilk fried-chicken sandwiches, chicken wings and nachos, meat lover’s flatbreads and injectable, cinnamon-dusted doughnut holes for dessert. Intersection of Powerline Boulevard and Race Track Road;

Gregory’s, West Palm Beach

Miami-chic Greek eats, south of downtown West Palm Beach? That would be Gregory’s, co-owner Max Ricci and entrepreneur Michael Katzenberg’s restaurant opening sometime this fall in the city’s so-called SoSo (south of Southern) neighborhood on South Dixie Highway. An offshoot of Ricci’s acclaimed Mandolin Aegean Bistro in Miami’s Design District, Gregory’s will serve coastal Greek and Mediterranean, although a full menu is not yet available. 5700 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach


The Baked Bear, Dania Beach

The Baked Bear plans to open its second South Florida location sometime this winter at Dania Pointe, the sprawling al fresco mall and entertainment enclave in Dania Beach. As with the other location in Sawgrass Mills, this new novelty dessert shop will feature 13 baked-from-scratch-daily cookies and 13 premium craft ice cream flavors. You will also be able to mix and match two cookie flavors and choose an ice cream flavor for the filling, thus creating your own customized ice cream sandwich. Additionally, The Baked Bear will serve pints, sundaes and Bear Bowls (a warm cookie and brownie served with a scoop of ice cream). There are two more shops planned for Miami-Dade County. 139 S. Compass Way, Dania Beach; and

Chip City, Pompano Beach and beyond

The latest New York-born restaurant to bet its chips on South Florida is this growing cookie monster, which is scheduled to open five new storefronts in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties by fall 2023. The sweet shack founded by childhood friends Peter Phillips and Teddy Gailas in 2017 has 17 spots in New York and New Jersey, but a $10 million investment by Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer spurred the South Florida move. Their chunky five-and-a-half-ounce cookie menu includes dairy-free chocolate chip made with oat milk and coconut oil, chocolate peanut butter, blueberry cheesecake, and seasonal outliers such as hot honey cornbread and cannoli (stuffed with toasted pistachios, cannoli shells and cream). A Miami Beach outpost is expected to debut this spring, followed by spots in Pompano Beach, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami’s MIMO District. 2083 N. Powerline Road, Pompano Beach, and 302A E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach;
