About UsREX BARON: Truly an Experience to Live For
Ready to excite, astound and surprise, Rex Gryphon restaurant group brings its newest REX (Restaurant, Entertainment, Xperience) destination to South Florida; its Rex Baron Survivors Kitchen/VRex Lounge will open at Town Center at Boca Raton. The second in a network of casual, upscale “vigilante posts” set for national expansion, the 8,500-square-foot “none like it” interactive, multi-sensory experiential destination meeting place, dining haven, watering hole and hi-tech virtual reality escape lounge is “where the art of food meets the art of survival.”
The avant-garde post-apocalyptic themed restaurant concept — where food, culture, community, interactive tech and art thrive — engages guests (aka survivors) with characters (aka vigilantes, the “good guys…and gals”) who together are building a peaceful, inclusive new world. As its sister outpost to Rex Gryphon’s Mad Rex in Philadelphia, the South Florida outpost is named for its own lead vigilante Rex Baron and features a collection of authentic fashion-infused vigilante persona art exhibits (clothed in post-apocalypse recovered remnants of Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Prada, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Isaac Sellam and Carol Christian Poell couture) each with their own personal stories. “Style so good it intimidates.” To help survivors spot and learn about each vigilante, guests are provided a pocket-size gallery guide as an app is currently under development.
“To disrupt and excel in an ever-evolving industry, we have created and mastered the REX at our posts by offering a high quality, healthy and delicious menu with a storied, rustic, new world cross-generational atmosphere that engages and stimulates,” shared hospitality industry veteran Michael Norris who leads the development of Rex Gryphon’s vigilante posts. “We look forward to sharing the REX with greater South Florida, its residents and businesses, and visitors, as it is an easy drive from Miami to Stuart.”
There are plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on the menu, with allergens noted with each dish.
Starters include Mushroom Truffle Flatbread, Fried Green Tomatoes, Calamari (buttermilk marinated, flash-fired served with lemon caper remoulade), Tuna Poke, and Salmon Tartar.
Featured salads include Ancient Grain, Rex Southwest Wedge, Grilled Caesar and Burrata Caprese. Sandwiches include the popular Prime Rib Melt, Grilled Chicken Sourdough, and the towering half-pound Rex Baron Burger.
Chef selections that wow include the Southwest Rigatoni, Wild Mushroom Cavatappi, Pan Seared Scallops, St. Louis Spareribs and Roasted Airline Chicken.
Sides include House-cut Fries (with choice of Rex Dry Rub, Salt & Vinegar, Truffle Parmesan), Lemon Caper Orzo, Smoked Gouda Mac & Cheese, and Grilled Asparagus.
