There’s a New Cook in the Kitchen at Tanzy & iPic

“Renowned chef Sherry Yard has earned the praise of her critics and peers with multiple accolades awarded throughout her illustrious career including two James Beard Awards for ‘Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year’ and ‘Best Baking Book’ for her cookbook debut “The Secrets of Baking.”  In 2014, she was inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s prestigious “Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America” for her significant contributions to the pastry profession. Chef Yard served as executive pastry chef for Wolfgang Puck for nearly 20 years, opening new restaurants and mentoring a generation of pastry chefs.” 

This is who’s now running the kitchen at Tanzy Boca Raton. (Her official title is: vice president of culinary development for iPic Entertainment.)

Holy sh**.

Known for serving award-winning artisanal Italian cuisine in Mizner Park, Tanzy Boca Raton is debuting a tantalizing new lunch, dinner and brunch menus, designed to please longtime guests and newcomers alike.

Complementing existing menu favorites, fresh new appetizer and entree choices, with a focus on premium ingredients and authentic flavors, have been added to all three menus in an effort to refresh and diversify the restaurant’s signature cuisine. Guests will find a selection of heartier items as well as lighter options.

Guests can accompany their lunch, dinner or brunch with a selection of hand-crafted farm-to-glass cocktails or fine wines by the glass or bottle, curated by nationally lauded Master Mixologist and Advanced Sommelier, Adam Seger. 

He is quite the talent! Our raspberry mojitos were to die for.

#modernbocagrandmom and I were invited to a media event to test drive Tanzy’s new dinner menu (as well as some cocktails, obvi) and boy, were we in for an experience! The best part? Chef Sherry and Adam Seger were both there in the driver’s seat leading the dinner experience.

Here are the highlights from the night:

You can’t go wrong with this new menu, whether you’re a seafood aficionado or a beef devotee. I would have to say that the pasta course was my absolute FAVORITE, with the Fiocchi coming in first place.

Oh, and did I mention Chef Sherry and Adam Seger are developing the food and drink menu IN the iPic as well?

Time to get your next date night on the calendar!
