ZED 451 restaurant is a revolutionary new concept for a restaurant. The atmosphere offers uniquely designed foods served to you in a stylish new fashion. With modern upscale grilling featuring steaks, ribs, fish, poultry and game served table side by the chefs who created them.
This modern restaurant picked Boca Raton's former International Museum of Cartoon Art – now the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Building, as its first opening place outside of Chicago.
Chief Operating Officer Bill Bartlett said the concept behind ZED 451 is to take three core attributes of the restaurant experience – service, cuisine, and environment – and reinvent them simultaneously. ZED 451 is intended for you to feel more like attending a party in someone’s home than dining in a restaurant.
“The beauty of our menu is that there is no risk,” said Steve Byrne, director of culinary operations. “You can try something new like antelope or wild boar sausage and if you like it, you can have more! If not, move on.”
The restaurant is designed by Chris Smith. It has 14,000 square feet inside and a 3,000 square foot patio outside, providing seating for 338. Guests can also help themselves to a “Harvest Table” featuring salads, soups, and artisan cheese.
General Manager of ZED 451 is Tim Fannin, and the 20-member team of chefs is led by Executive Chef Armando Galeas.
