Bojo’s Seafood Comes to Pompano Beach!

Pompano Beach CRA Board Approves Lease with Bojo’s Seafood for 731 Shoppes

On Tuesday April 21st the CRA Board approved a lease for Bojo’s Seafood to take over the last remaining space in the CRA owned 731 Shoppes located at 731 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. The approval of this lease marks 100% occupancy for the building, which was the first retail development on MLK Blvd in over 50 years.

Bojo’s, a new seafood concept by Pompano Beach native Brandon Smith, is being welcomed with open arms and eager stomachs. As a child Brandon’s dream career was to run his father’s business, Lombos’s Seafood, and he knew from then that it was his destiny. Being instilled with all the knowledge, skills, preparation and will he needed to operate any business. After selling having the family business sold and a strong need and demand from the community to bring the restaurant back, Brandon obliged and decided to reopen naming the business “Bojo’s Seafood Kitchen.” With a buy here cook here policy, there are no shortcomings to this new business backed by Smith’s mastery with a knife and some good old fashion seasoning.

Bojo’s Seafood Kitchen will join the other members of the 731 Building during their grand opening on Thursday, May 21, 2015 from 3pm-9pm. The owners will be welcoming community members and community officials including Mayor Fisher and the district commissioners.

Come out and experience the new wave of excitement in the NWCRA and support these new leaders in wonderful Pompano Beach!

El Tamarindo Cafe II – Celebrity Treatment and Mouthwatering Dishes


El Tamarindo Café II
3100 North Federal Highway, Pompano Beach
(954) 532-7773

When we walked in to El Tamarindo, we were immediately greeted by wonderfully attentive service – even more so than at, say, the Capital Grille.

My guest and I were seated quickly, and a white cloth napkin placed across our laps. Another server materialized almost instantly with a pitcher of water, and to my right the most incredible soup appeared. Our drink orders were taken, and a free appetizer of plantains with a cilantro sauce for dipping arrived. Truly a party in your mouth!

You  can look at a menu which includes, burgers, seafood, sushi, and the $7.00 pork chops that melt in your mouth (sorry, nearby chophouse), or watch the server present images of the most mouthwatering dishes on an iPad. I did not ask the price but just said, “I will take that beautiful seabass with squid , mussels and clams on a bed of angel hair pasta (big enough for two, at $24.00).” Later, the chef saw me eyeing the gorgeous Sushi next to me, and made me the biggest sample! (Let’s call it a meal.)

For dessert, we were very impressed by a magical flan that was the best I’ve ever tasted. Throughout our visit, while I am not a celebrity, I was truly treated like one. According to what I’ve heard, everyone is treated this way.

It’s quite clear that Alex, the Chef-owner, knows how to please.  What took me so long to find this treasure?
