***** Batch Gastropub, 14813 Lyons Road, Delray Beach, Florida 33446, (561) 877-0000.

Got a terrific “sports bar” for you guys to checkout- Batch Gastropub in Delray Beach!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “know” sports bars- and trust me on this one, this Batch Gastropub joint is good stuff! Indoor table/booth seating, outdoor patio table & couch seating, full liquor bar, tons of tvs inside and outside, reasonably priced booze, super good staff, reasonably priced off the chart delicious food, big portions, Friday & Saturday night DJ providied music! Open Sunday-Thursday 4pm-11am, Friday-Saturday 4pm-1am, Saturday brunch noon-3pm, Sunday Brunch 11am-3pm.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats did a recent dinner- and I gotta tell you, Batch Gastropub killed it!

Like I said a few seconds ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “know” sports bars- and I’m telling you guys- that you definitely wanna give Batch Gastropub a shot- believe me, it’s really that good!

For the Amerigo Vespuccis in the crowd, Batch Gastropub is located in the Delray Marketplace in Delray Beach- there is- another Batch Gastropub location in Miami at 30 Southwest 12th Street (Brickell), (305) 808-5555 (which I already told you guys about on 3/19/14).

You guys can check menus/prices/info (for both locations) at batchgastropub.com.

***** Batch Gastropub, 30 Southwest 12th Street, Miami, Florida 33130, (305) 808-5555.

For our purposes, let’s call Batch Gastropub an “American-Style–Sports Bar.” When you check menu/prices at www.batchmiami.com you’ll also find a load of pictures–the joint is really great looking, with dark-wood booths and of-course loads of flat screen tvs (Do they still make “fat” screen tvs?)

You know and Jeff Eats knows that “sports bars” are literally a dime a dozen down here in South Florida…for sure, “we’ve all been in tons of them…and I gotta tell you, I was very impressed with Batch Gastropub.

For you drinkers out there…Batch has something like 15 (give or take) beers on tap, and maybe another 20 by the bottle.

Now let’s talk about FOOD–Jeff Eats’ real-game…

Just so you know, Batch’s menu isn’t exactly huge…that said, there are enough appetizers, burgers, salads, pizzas, entrees–so I’m thinking- no-body in your party is gonna have to stop at Wendy’s on the way home.

A recent dinner had Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and two other couples “doing”…margherita pizza, cheeseburger, hanger steak skewers, mushroom crusted mahi mahi, meatloaf, gnocchi mac & cheese/carmalized onions, truffle salt & shaved truffle cheese fries…and I gotta tell you, no one-bicthed about anything. If Jeff Eats had to give out awards, I thought that the gnocchi, fries, cheeseburger were the stars of the game. Between you and me–the gnocchi was amazing–the joint uses gnocchi with gruyere cheese and for an up-charge has 10 items that can be added to the basic dish–such as chicken, steak, bacon, carmalized onions (check the menu for the full list).

Like I said at the top, I was very impressed with Batch Gastropub…food was solid, service was good, prices exactly what you’d expect in an upscale-sports bar (you can fill in what you think these numbers should be)–one little draw back, the background music was a drop too loud for Jeff Eats’ crowd.

Gastropub is open Sunday-Thursday 11:30am-3am, Friday-Saturday 11:30am-5am.

Passcode: GRACELAND


BRANDON BENNETT

Delray Beach Playhouse
950 NW 9th St. Delray Beach, FL 33444

ELVIS: MY WAY STARRING BRANDON BENNETT – The electrifying Brandon Bennett (Chicago: Million Dollar Quartet) does the impossible, delivering a spine-tingling Elvis tribute that is fresh, powerful, and right on time. With his pure-bred southern charm, powerful voice, and scandalous moves Bennett was named the “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises at Graceland. His must-see show traverses Elvis’ career: from the Rock n’ Roll nativity of the 50s, to the iconic comeback television concert of the 60s, to the legendary lounge acts of the 70s. All-time great hits include “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” “Suspicious Minds,” and many more. ABOUT THE ARTIST: BRANDON BENNETT – ELVIS MY WAY stars highly acclaimed Elvis tribute artist, the electrifying Brandon Bennett. Brandon appeared as Elvis Presley in Chicago’s long-running, smash-hit musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET. Previously, he starred in the Montreal company of THE ELVIS STORY. His spine-tingling act can also be seen in festivals, cruises, commercials, and casinos across America. Television appearances include THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN and THE ROSIE O’DONNELL SHOW. A native son of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, Brandon’s southern roots, God-given talent, and natural resemblance to The King of Rock ‘n Roll allow him to uniquely evoke the unmistakable essence of Elvis’s charm onstage. He has been honored to sing alongside music legends such as The Jordanaires, DJ Fontana, and The Sweet Inspirations, as well as open for Diamond Rio, Ronnie Millsap, and Chuck Berry. Brandon’s uncanny performances have earned numerous accolades, including the prestigious “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” title bestowed by Elvis Presley Enterprises at Graceland.

Yolk (Boca Raton)

Posted on February 20th, 2019 · American Boca Raton Breakfast · 20 Comments »

Yolk, 5570 North Military Trail, Boca Raton, Florida 33496, (561) 300-4965.

Yolk is a breakfast/lunch- joint that opened something like 3 weeks ago in Boca Raton.

For the record, Yolk currently has 8 locations in Chicago, 3 locations in Indianapolis, 1 location in Fort Worth, 2 locations in Dallas and the aforemtioned Boca Raton location!

You can check menu/prices/locations/info at eatyolk.com.

Yolk is open 7 days a week 7am-3pm.

Last week Jeff Eats and 3 buddies- ate breakfast at the Boca Raton location (which has indoor booth/ counter/ table seating and outdoor table/ counter seating) and I gotta tell you that the only difference between the Titanic and Yolk is that the Titanic had a band!-(I know, overly dramatic!).

In a nutshell- amateurish service, big time mediocre over-priced food!

Rather than go into detail and color about our meal- trust me when I tell you that the joint batted 4 out of 4- with each of us rating the food and service lousy. Just so you know where I’m coming from, my waffle with fried chicken and scrambled eggs was topped with a gravy that was so salty- that the entire dish was inedible!

The bet here, is that the guy(s) who owns (I’m thinking that the Boca Raton location is a franchise-or operating partner type deal) isn’t gonna be a happy financial-camper with this Florida venture!

Now, you guys and I both know that Jeff Eats could be dead wrong on “this” call- you know, what I like, you might hate and vice versa…with that in mind, if you have already tried/ or do decide to try Yolk- I’d be interested in your respective thoughts!
