DaDa’s of Delray Florida

Every so often I like to share some of my travel experiences. Especially if I come across anything I find interesting. Well, I just returned from a business trip to Delray Beach Florida.  During my short two day visit, I came across a restaurant called DaDa’s that I just needed to tell everyone about.

Delray Gem

WOW!  This place is absolutely amazing.  It’s definitely a must-experience if you’re visiting Delray. Now, I’m not getting paid to say this.  This is honestly coming straight from the heart as a review of a terrific dining experience that I highly recommend. DaDa’s is perfect for any occasion, a real gem. Celebrating an event, taking someone on a date or, like I did, just having an enjoyable yet casual meal with a colleague, you simply can not go wrong.

The atmosphere is incredible with an artsy but relaxed down home feel.  That’s probably because it is quite literally a house converted into a restaurant. Tables are located on the front lawn, as well as in the house itself.  The evening I went, the place was completely packed. Apparently a wait is a pretty common thing, so I would recommend making reservations.

I was advised I would have a 45 minute wait but, the hostesses were so nice they went out of their way to find us two seats at the bar.  Normally I much prefer sitting down at a table but, beggars can’t be choosers and this turned out to be fantastic, as we were still able to order from the full menu.   DaDa-Delray

Flavor and Value

The drinks are VERY good and the food is incredibly delicious yet surprisingly well priced. My co-worker ordered the salmon dinner and I decided to be a bit daring, based on the bartenders recommendation, and settled on the seven cheese grilled cheese sandwich.  It piqued my curiosity and it was WELL worth it.  Way better than I could have ever imagined.  Seven layers of melted cheese, including Cheddar, Swiss, Sheep Feta, America, Blue, Goat and Muenstar all melted together on sour dough bread. I added a little bacon to it as well and WOW!  The flavor was outstanding.  It also came with a tomato bisque for dipping which just added to the overall taste and experience. It was so filling but I made sure to leave just enough room for dessert.

For dessert I picked up the s’mores cup. I’m a huge chocolate fan and this was just perfect. Not too much but just enough dark chocolate mixed with graham cracker crust and marshmallow meringue.  Trust me when I tell you, if you ever try this, you will not regret it.

As for cost, between the three drinks my colleague and I had, our entrees and my one desert, the bill (before tip) was under $100. Of course, as a former waiter myself, I was sure to give a generous 20% but, overall the price was very comparable to any dinner for two my wife and I would do here at home.  The food however, was way better then anything we have in Maryland.  Just my opinion.

Final Thoughts

All in all, it was a great experience and I would go back in a heartbeat. It was actually delicious and service was by far some of the best I’ve ever had.  Although I didn’t get too much into the drinks they are, without question, delicious. This place really hit the spot for me and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as well.

Bon appetit.
