Are you someone that has food intolerances like dairy? It can be difficult to find a place that can cater to your dietary needs.
Now, Ditmas brings Dary-Free From LA to Boca Raton.
Ditmas is the hottest new restaurant to open with a dairy-free and kosher menu.
You won’t find pork or shellfish in this kitchen. Along with cooking dairy-free, it helps with not having two separate kitchens. The is a chophouse of sorts with a whole section of the menu dedicated to steak, but the beef is only from the front of the animal, as kosher law dictates (it’s somewhat more complex than that, but in America, this is how people keep kosher). A rabbi is on premises to oversee things.
I had the pleasure of dining at Ditmas for a blogger dinner with Take A Bite Out Of Boca, Essentially Erika, and Fashionably French Fried. We tasted their Boca menu along with a few items the chef wowed us with.

As a starter, we were presented with the Maple Glazed Chick Peas. I could have these every day. The sweetness with the chickpea flavor was unbelievable. Who knew so much goodness could be served in a small glass?
Ditmas is all about the presentation. Instead of serving these pickled veggies on a plate, they were presented in a mason jar. Delicious!
Fennel Soup was a first for me. The creaminess and light flavor of this delicious hearty soup was the perfect appetizer. The floating potato chip added a little crunch.
Summertime on a plate! This light and flavorful appetizer will not want to be shared with others. The ahi tuna with the sweetness of the watermelon along topped with crisp radish left this plate empty.
Another way to spin Kale is to put it into a Caesar Salad. It’s so simple and delicious.
I’m obsessed with a Hawaiian Poke. Usually, it’s on a stack or just thrown on a plate, but this was a presentation in itself. Smoked in a mason jar with avocado, orange slices, and crunchy rice.
The Tony Fries were the highlight of the meal. Who would have thought Machaca chicken, pico, guacamole, and siracha aioli on top of a bowl of fries had four women swooning at the table. I had to stop myself from fighting for the entire bowl.
Short rib over butternut polenta is a meal my hubby would love. Sprinkled with shallots, pickled peppers, and horseradish snow, Ditmas has something for everyone on the menu.
This head on whole F.O.D was baked and filleted at the table for us to try. The grilled lemon and chimichurri was a nice touch of flavor. I think it kept staring at me!
Chef Aaron cooked the salmon to perfection with sugar snap peas, forbidden black rice, and a delicious pear slaw.
Don’t worry! Ditmas provides an interesting menu of specialty cocktails (using wine) along with an excellent selection of signature craft beers. You will not be disappointed.
Served family style on a butcher block, the girls and I were ready for our favorite part of the meal. The warm chocolate chip brownie was drizzled with a caramel sauce. The carrot cake was topped with a citrus whipped cream. and a chocolate avocado mousse with gram cracker and toasted marshmallow fluff served in a mason jar. To cleanse the palette, we finished with a fresh mango and strawberry sorbet.
Thank you to Ditmas for hosting a Girl’s Night Out with amazing food and drinks.
