New Authentic Italian Menu Introduced At Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort
Artisanal Salumi, Bruschettas, Cheeses and More Make Up the New Menu at Bar Luna
Boca Raton, Fla. – July 8, 2015 – Bar Luna at Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in South Florida, recently debuted a new Italian menu, featuring Chicago’s West Loop Salumi, pizzeta, bruschetta, authentic cicchetti and other light bites. The chefs of Bar Luna created the new menu with a subtle touch, allowing for the quality of the food and ingredients to speak for themselves.
A highlight of the menu is salumi imported from Chicago’s renowned West Loop Salumi. Under the leadership of Greg Laketek, who trained in Italy under the famous Massimo Spigaroli, West Loop Salumi sources ingredients from their native destinations. For example, Lambrusco is used in the salumi from Reggio Emilia, Chianti in the Finocchiona from Tuscany, Barolo in the Barolo salami from Piedmont, fresh Calabrian Chili Peppers from Calabria in the Soppressata, and ‘Nduja, fresh winter black Alba truffles, Spanish paprika and Tempranillo in the Chorizo. The meat is all-natural and originates from family-owned Heritage Berkshire farms while the Lardo originates from Spanish Iberico Bellota hogs.
The new menu at Bar Luna also includes a variety of seasonal bruschettas, pizzetas, cicchetti (Italian savory snacks) and cheese offerings. Highlights include a Sonoma pizzeta, which incorporates roasted peaches, goat cheese, speck and saba; a Granchio bruschetta which features crab, jalapeño pesto, avocado, grapefruit and mint; a Tuscan White Bean & Rosemary dip made from Castelvetrano olives topped with salsa verde and served with warm flatbread; and Artichoke Fonduta made from goat cheese, lemon, basil and crispy bread. Bar Luna will change the menu on a regular basis, showcasing an array of ingredients used at the peak of their seasonal freshness.
Salumi and Cheese blocks start at $24. Bruschetta dishes start at $8. Bar Luna is open to hotel guests and club members. Nightly rates start at $199. To learn more about Boca Raton Resort or for hotel reservations, please call +1 888 543 1286 or visit http://waldorfastoria.com/
