Believed To Be First Celebrity Chef Restaurant In The United States Exclusively For Homeowners

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Celebrity Chef Angelo Elia is preparing to open a private restaurant in the gated community of Seven Bridges in early 2021. Believed to be the first celebrity chef restaurant ever opened in a non-country club residential community in the United States, “Casa D’Angelo at Seven Bridges” will feature the Tuscan-themed food served in Angelo Elia’s must-visit restaurants, as well as other unique offerings. Angelo Elia currently operates high-profile restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Atlantis (Bahamas/Paradise Island), ParkSquare in Aventura, Weston, Coral Springs and Delray Beach.
The new restaurant is exclusively for homeowners and their guests.
“We will be opening Casa D’Angelo Seven Bridges in mid-January, with specialized menus designed exclusively for residents that will be different and unique to those of our Casa restaurant locations,” said Chef Angelo Elia, founder of Angelo Elia Restaurants. “I look forward to being involved at Casa D’Angelo Seven Bridges weekly, in addition to my Corporate Executive Chef Rickie Piper.”
Restaurant, hospitality industry experts, and a group of “foodies” living in the Seven Bridges community brainstormed the concept of a “dream” on-site restaurant — assuming they could never make it happen. Disappointed by previous vendors unable to accommodate the specialized requests of families with young children and older adults who sought fine dining, the ad hoc committee of homeowners believed they could never do better than “acceptable.”
Until they approached Angelo Elia who said there’s no “acceptable,” only “exceptional.”
“I’m excited to bring the Casa D’Angelo brand along with a new exclusive dining opportunity, ‘The Experience by Casa D’Angelo’, to service the Seven Bridges residential community,” said Elia to BocaNewsNow.com. “We are honored to become the first celebrity chef restaurant concept to ever launch within a luxury residential community like Seven Bridges and commend their Board of Directors for selecting our brand and our quality menu offerings for their residents.“
The restaurant will operate from what is currently known as Prime 7, the restaurant erected by GL Homes which built and marketed the community of 701 houses. Seven Bridges has since been ‘turned over’ to its homeowners association which — with President Larry Orbach — is welcoming Angelo Elia to the community. Service will be available in the restaurant, poolside, and in the upscale lounge which will be home to “The Experience by Casa D’Angelo” — an adult dining setting available on weekends.
“We are excited for what’s to come with this alliance and are looking forward to serving and meeting everyone,” added Elia. “This location opening will add to our existing hospitality portfolio and represents new expansion for the brand.”
Casa D’Angelo at Seven Bridges is expected to create such a culinary buzz that community leaders joke they may need to increase security to keep non-homeowners out. The restaurant, which will operate six days a week for lunch and dinner, is exclusively for homeowners and their guests.
Casa D’Angelo at Seven Bridges will additionally offer golf cart delivery service to the community’s homes — something traditionally only found in country club communities with high membership fees. Seven Bridges is a gated community with a homeowner’s association, but is not a country club.
The multi-year exclusive relationship between Seven Bridges and Angelo Elia is considered to be unprecedented in an area where other gated communities feature snack bars and deli food.
Casa D’Angelo Boca Raton, located in East Boca, remains open to serve guests. The restaurant features award-winning menus and a renowned Wine Spectator recognized wine list. Find all of Angelo Elia’s locations at AngeloElia.com.
