Florida is finally getting the restaurant it deserves — Rex Baron.
Although it won’t be stationed in Orlando, it’s located just a day trip away, at the Town Center in Boca Raton, at 6000 Glades Road. The 8,200-square-foot concept is the world’s second “Vigilante Post” dreamed up by the Rex Gryphon Restaurant Group.The experiential dining joint, whose slogan is “Where the art of food meets the art of survival,” will refer to diners as survivors and give them tasks in order to thrive within the post-apocalyptic themed experience.
According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, one of those tasks is cooking your own meals on 550-degree lava rocks. Don’t stress, you can also snag some pre-made dishes if you’re no Bear Grylls.
“To disrupt and excel in an ever-evolving industry, we have mastered the REX: Restaurant, Entertainment Xperience at our posts by offering a high quality, healthy and delicious menu with a storied atmosphere that engages and stimulates,” hospitality industry veteran Michael Norris, who leads the development of Rex Gryphon’s outposts, wrote on the concept’s website.
