The Rapoport’s Restaurant Group Family Is Growing: Now Hiring

One of South Florida’s most recognizable names in dining, Rapoport’s Restaurant Group, is expanding! Restaurateur Burt Rapoport has announced his plans to open Pagoda Kitchen, a casual neighborhood restaurant celebrating Chinese home-style cuisine, in Delray Beach in October 2021.

At his side for this much anticipated concept is Executive Chef Bryan Emperor, who has extensive experience in Asian restaurants and cuisine, including having been recruited to open a restaurant in Beijing, China, by one of the most famous restaurateurs from Shanghai at the time. Chef Empire has also been included in the acclaimed list of Best New Chefs In America by Food and Wine Magazine, among many other accolades. It’s going to be quite the treat having him here as a South Florida chef!

Rapoports Burt & Max's

Burt & Max’s is contemporary American cuisine, with a focus on brick oven specialities. It’s a warm and welcoming environment with an industrial feel to its decor: lots of natural finishes, reclaimed woods, and a 32-foot bar made out of a single slab of cypress wood. There is both indoor and outdoor bar seating, a fire pit lounge and a spacious open-format dining area.

The restaurant is located at 9089 West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30am-3pm. Dinner is Monday through Thursday from 4:30-9pm, Friday and Saturday from 4:30-10pm, and Sunday from 4:30-8pm. Brunch specials are offered Saturday from 11:30am-3pm and Sunday from 11am-3pm.

Rapoports Deck 84

Deck 84 is Downtown Delray’s best spot for casual dining on the Intracoastal Waterway. The restaurant has been voted Top 100 Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America by Opentable for a number of years, and has 150 feet of easy-access dock space available for people to tie up, and either come into the restaurant or order right from their boat. The outside deck is always busy, with live music every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and the indoor dining space and bar is available for those who want a quieter experience, yet still want the waterfront views.

The restaurant is located at 840 East Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. An All Day menu is available Monday through Thursday from 12-9pm, Friday and Saturday from 12-10pm, and Sunday from 11am-9pm. Brunch specials are offered Saturday from 12-2pm and Sunday from 11am-2pm.

Rapoports Max's Grille

Max’s Grille has been a staple in Boca Raton for 30+ years. Its menu is rooted in what’s known as the “California Movement,” meaning that food is grilled over mesquite and served with light sauces and reductions, emphasizing clean flavors, inventive combinations and the use of local products. Recently, Max’s Grille added a sushi menu and it has been growing steadily in popularity.

The restaurant is located at 404 Plaza Real Mizner Park in Boca Raton. Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30am-3pm. Dinner is Monday through Thursday from 5-9pm, and Friday from 5-10pm. Weekend hours are Saturday from 11:30am-10pm and Sunday from 11am-9pm, with brunch served both days until 3pm.
