TooJay’s Gourmet Deli at the Polo Club Shoppes in Boca Raton
TooJay’s Gourmet Deli’s seem to be everywhere in South Florida. Within a 30-minute radius there are 10+ to choose from, so no matter what county you live in, you’ll never be far away. Started back in 1981 in Palm Beach, TooJay’s takes the “Jay” from both of the co-founders’ names (Jay Katzenberg and Jay Brown). The TooJay’s that we recently visited is located in the Polo Club Shoppes in Boca Raton just near the ritzy Polo Club residences.
A gourmet deli, TooJay’s has two distinct sections in the restaurant. First, there’s the take out section in the front where you can take your order to go. There are a large assortment of baked goods as well in the front, so this plays dessert central in the restaurant. Beyond the take-out counter, there is a sizable dining room for those parties that want to sit down and enjoy a meal. The menu at TooJay’s is quite expansive. There are gluten free, vegetarian and kids menus all available. The options range from quality seafood dishes to deli sandwiches, as one would expect. TooJay’s, from our few dining experiences at different locations, tends to skew older in clientele, but are also quite kid friendly. With a few kids in tow it was a comfortable restaurant to dine in and there were great options available on the kids menu.
Beyond the restaurant operation TooJay’s has quite the catering business, catering everything from private dinners to corporate events. It’s this ability to cook for the masses on short notice that aids their regular restaurant operation when it is full. We have yet to see a hiccup in service or presentation.
