BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In an article that was written while BocaNewsNow.com was in its off-line testing stages — but never published publicly — our beloved food critic Morty Eatowitz called Smokehouse Grill on Yamato at 441 in West Boca, “the worst food I have ever eaten, ever.”
That’s something coming from a professional like Morty.
Now it appears that Smokehouse Grill is no more, at least at this location. The windows are covered with brown paper, the doors are locked, and, there’s no sign of life at the restaurant that in a previous life was something of a sports bar that served seafood.
We’re not sure if Smokehouse is revamping, renovating, or just plain gone. Their website with all contact information is off line. Just a few weeks ago they planted a huge sign at Yamato and 441 proclaiming that “Smokehouse Grill is Now Open.” They had already been open for half a year.
We can only assume that Smokehouse has been smoked. If so, this isn’t a closure that can be blamed on the economy. It’s what happens when you serve overpriced, really bad food, to a customer base than can drive just a few more miles and dine in a place like Lucile’s Bad To The Bone — a Morty Favorite — at 3011 Yamato Road — which serves quite wonderful food.
When told of the closure this morning, Morty offered this quote: “Smokehouse: if you’re gone, you won’t be missed. If you’re fixing yourself, please spend the money to serve food that is actually edible.”
