The old Ceviche tapas restaurant in the historic Falcon House building on Northeast 6th Avenue in Delray Beach will in October become the latest addition to the Dennis Max family of restaurants.
Tentatively named The Blind Pig, the restaurant will blend Max’s signature “fork to table” culinary philosophy with the still furiously trendy gastropub concept, which in your mouth means lots of small plates and a beverage emphasis on craft beers, artisan cocktails and affordable boutique wines from around the world.
The menu is still under development but will be as eclectic as the libations, presided over by Max Group exec chef Patrick Broadhead and Pig chef de cuisine Scott Pierce. Cocktails will be a particular focus, utilizing a variety of house-made syrups, farm fresh garnishes and the like. Of particular note will be something called the Fusion Tower, a giant chrome-and-glass device that can infuse anything from vodka to beer with just about anything you can imagine. The Pig will feature four of them, at about $10,000 each.
The restaurant is currently undergoing renovation, all with an eye to keeping the Falcon House’s funky, old-fashioned watering hole charm while bringing it up to date. So look for lots of dark wood, burgundy leather seating and outdoor patio give a garden-like makeover.
Stay tuned for more details as opening day gets nearer.
