Farmhouse Kitchen To Open In Delray Beach In May, Replacing Gary Rack's Fat Rooster

Restaurateur Gary Rack will soon be swapping out one of his restaurant concepts for another.

Gary Rack's Fat Rooster, the American comfort food restaurant on Atlantic Avenue, is set to close after Mother's Day. By the end of May, the Delray Beach spot will be transformed into a health-conscious Farmhouse Kitchen.

Offering guilt-free, farm-fresh eats, Farmhouse Kitchen opened its original location in Boca Raton's Royal Palm Place at the end of 2014. After considering comments from local supporters and analyzing industry growth in the clean-eating sector, Rack decided to open a second restaurant in Delray.

"The Fat Rooster will always have a special place in our hearts. However, the overwhelming response from our friends and locals have made the rebranding decision easy for us," he said. "The transition from Fat Rooster to Gary Rack's Farmhouse Kitchen is a positive, forward thinking move, and we are confident the Delray Beach crowd will soon agree." 

The farm-to-table menu at Farmhouse Kitchen in Delray will feature a new Signature Vegetable section—sourced from local farms and swapped out seasonally—and Reserve Wine menu of hand-selected varieties. The Boca restaurant will follow suit.

Other selections at the modern, homestyle restaurant include the Kale Yeah Salad of kale, cauliflower, goat cheese, and pumpkin and sunflower seeds; the Buffalo Burger topped with balsamic onions, pear and cheddar; and mustard-glazed salmon served with cranberry almond pilaf and coconut pumpkin purée.

The restaurant will offer a happy hour, Wine Down Wednesday, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
