NYY STEAK Coconut Creek Hits One Out of the Park

Yankee Stadium.  New York City.  Coconut Creek. What could these places possibly have in common? NYY Steak Restaurant Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, of course!

Apparently, one of the best steakhouses in South Florida is at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.  Who knew?  I dragged (read: he was willing) Mr. Red Sox fan a.k.a. #modernbocadad to the southernmost outpost of NYY STEAK on Saturday night.

Our date nights typically keep us in the Boca/Delray/Deerfield areas of SOFL (Ft. Lauderdale or Palm Beach if we’re feeling extra adventurous).

Around every corner, you’ll find signature Yankee touches like an autographed wall of past and present players. Even the memorabilia and baseball diamond-shaped dishes marked with retired Yankee numbers.  Even #modernbocadad had to admit they were clever…

The NYY Steak Coconut Creek ‘s award-winning, open kitchen (it’s made of glass– so is the butcher “shop” when you walk in), the finest dry aged USDA Prime steaks, seafood and desserts are presented to customers in top form.

We ordered a delicious bottle of Pinot Noir and Blue Point oysters (yum)! Not to mention the onion rings (which were as big as glazed donuts, I’m not kidding- see the photo below). The previously mentioned garlic mashed potatoes and split a 12 oz New York Strip (cooked medium rare and dry aged for 21 days).

However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to NYY STEAK Coconut Creek ‘s dinner menu which can be viewed HERE.

If you’re looking to dine al fresco, NYY STEAK also features an outdoor dining area and their indoor Legends Lounge offers a chic option to enjoy live entertainment and amazing drinks with friends if you’re not craving a huge meal.

MBMom’s experience at NYY STEAK Restaurant Seminole Casino Coconut Creek was overwhelmingly positive and definitely quelled some of the NYC homesickness #modernbocadad and I been having lately (now that warm weather has arrived in the city, of course).

The only negative I would HAVE to point out is the restroom location for the restaurant.  It’s located in the main casino, which is fine, but I didn’t love that I had to leave the restaurant to use it.  A small price to pay for a great dining experience and date night…even if your husband is a Red Sox fan!


You can make reservations for NYY STEAK directly on Seminole Casino Coconut Creek’s Facebook page OR on their website: http://www.nyysteak.com/coconut-creek/

Le Macaron French Pastries Adds Yum to Mizner Park

Have you heard about Le Macaron Boca Raton? I’m not going to lie. I am a bit obsessed when it comes to macarons. I remember when I was 9 months pregnant with #dailybocaavery and I waddled all the way to the Upper East Side in Manhattan (from Hell’s Kitchen) to visit the first U.S.-based Ladurée shop (the macarons are actually flown in from Paris each day). Big mistake. I have been spending my hard earned dollars on those teeny, colorful, delectable pastries ever since!

I read that a Ladurée “house” opened recently in Miami (the second U.S. location since New York), but I thought because of the distance, it would be best saved for a special occasion. I don’t drive to Miami for just anything mamas.

Enter Le Macaron French Pastries in Mizner Park. I have been walking by the space (next to Sloan’s) for months now and it FINALLY opened! Little did I know there is one in Delray Beach as well.

And the wait was worth it.  Le Macaron Boca Raton definitely knows how to make its namesake and then some. I am normally a huge fan of the standard Vanilla macaron (Ladurée wins that bakery battle), but the Gingerbread flavor was unique and pretty darn delicious. Pair that with one of their handcrafted chocolates and you are in for a TREAT.

Mind you, a box of 6 costs $13.80 + tax, so it’s probably not going to turn into your daily family dessert, but for special occasions, parties or a beautiful Friday night walking the Mizner Park, I highly recommend.
