A new young chef has hit Boca Raton and lightening some of the Italian Classics with his new menu items at Prezzo.
I had the pleasure of meeting Executive Chef Patrick Delay, who joined Prezzo in August. He has started to leave his imprint on the Prezzo menu with some of his unique and flavorful additions.
With the trend in Gluten Free and vegetarian dishes, he created the lasagna with butternut squash ‘noodles’ and an exotic mushroom & eggplant bolognese.
As the youngest chef in our group (29 years old), he has brought some fresh ideas to the Prezzo table and elevated the overall menu.
Also nominated for the Eater 2019 Young Guns award, the award aims to honor the up-and-comers in the
QUINOA & SQUASH SALAD
The quinoa & squash salad features roasted chicken and arugula. It’s sprinkled with dried cranberries. The roasted butternut squash & zucchini is the perfect hint of sweetness for this salad. Drizzled with pumpkin seeds and a balsamic vinaigrette adds a nice touch.
Lemon-Stuffed Branzino features a side of quinoa & orange tabbouleh on a red & yellow pepper puree. The perfect protein if you are craving fish.
This might have been the favorite with crumbled Italian sausage, broccoli, red pepper flakes
It’s dessert! What else can I say?
