Armadillo Cafe to open in Boca Raton

Here’s some big news for fans of chef Kevin McCarthy of the dearly departed Armadillo Café in Davie and its last incarnation, Armadillo Beach in Dania Beach. (McCarthy most recently worked as executive chef of Gulfstream Park.) 

McCarthy is bringing Armadillo back, this time in Boca Raton, at 8221 Glades Rd., one block west of Florida’s Turnpike. Look for Armadillo Café Boca to open in mid-January and for the website to go live soon.

Until then, McCarthy is already floating a nickname for his new joint: The Bocadillo.
