(PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL – September 6, 2018) – Mainstreet at Midtown, the ultimate destination along Palm Beach Gardens’ vital and exciting PGA Boulevard corridor, is pleased to announce the opening of its ninth unique dining destination: global café ANZO.

Conceptually offering “Real Food. United.,” ANZO’s cuisine is inspired by the four corners of the world, while the company is committed to creating spaces that are meticulously weaved on the fabric of exploration, innovation, and connection. It’s a united space that transforms one of the most communal moments – mealtime. The menu is a culinary fusion where warm bowls, wraps, and salads are derived from its Mediterranean roots and elevated global palate.

Mainstreet at Midtown is an established destination where one may find a way to spend the entire day: pamper yourself, get fit, shop, and dine in one convenient place.

“We are thrilled that ANZO has joined the impressive array of restaurants at Midtown,” says Jonathan Porter, VP – Asset Management & Finance for Ram Realty Advisors. “ANZO fits in nicely as a fresh, healthy, affordably-priced, fast-casual concept.”

The opening of ANZO follows on the heels of the debut of new anchor tenant Earth Fare, one of the largest natural and organic food retailers in the country. Mainstreet at Midtown, a 47-acre development that encompasses more than 96,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, and office space together with 225 luxury condominiums, a 500-seat cultural center, and a 300-seat banquet hall, is the corporate headquarters for the center’s developer Ram Realty Advisors and its affiliated company, property manager 5/ten Management.

Openings: Anzo brings Mediterranean bowls to Gardens’ Midtown plaza

September 7, 2018

New restaurant, Anzo, opens in Palm Beach Gardens

Heads up, newbies: There may not be enough room in your bowl at Anzo Mediterranean Kitchen for all the toppings offered at Palm Beach Gardens’ newest build-your-meal restaurant.

The casual, Middle Eastern-leaning restaurant offers no fewer than 15 toppings (13 of them free) to heap on your already hefty bowl ($9.45) or wrap ($8.95). To build your meal, you choose two base items (rice or quinoa and a choice of salad greens), add one of six protein items, three sauces, a roasted veg and a dressing. The menu has plenty of vegan and gluten-free offerings.

The counter-service spot, an outpost of Anzo on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm, opened at the Gardens’ Midtown plaza Aug. 30. It took over the sunlit corner space that once housed an interior décor store.

At lunch Thursday, a stream of customers quickly filled the place. I found quite the spread of fresh-made dishes on Anzo’s steam tables. My customized bowl did not disappoint: warm turmeric basmati rice, organic arugula, deliciously tender turkey meatballs, shawarma cauliflower, harissa carrot salad, marinated tomatoes, and purple cabbage slaw, sprinkled with crispy onions and za’atar croutons. On the side: hummus for dipping and coconut curry and lemon tahini sauces for drizzling.

It was a lot, I know. But it all worked and, really, you can order as much or as little as you’d like.

Expect some items to carry upcharges. Add $2.50 for slow-braised lamb or salmon skewers, $1.50 for an organic hardboiled egg or a half avocado. To drink, there’s a range of all-natural soda, fresh teas, lemonade and almond milk drinks. Various desserts, including baklava ($1.85), are offered as well.

Anzo’s opening comes about a year after the opening of Olive U Mediterranean Grill, a casual, build-your-bowl restaurant that has built a steady local fan base two and a half miles east on PGA Boulevard. Both home-grown concepts reflect a national wave of DIY-meal restaurants that has sparked diverse spots across Palm Beach County, from healthy bowls to pizza. Call it the Chipotle effect. In fact, there’s a Chipotle near Anzo at the Midtown plaza. There’s also a Blaze Pizza, where diners customize their personal pies.

But do not assume such concepts equate lackluster settings. If you’re expecting your average fast-food joint, you may be pleasantly surprised by Anzo’s stylish digs.
