Chinglish Cantonese Wine Bar plans to import an “elevated dining experience” to the far eastern section of Boca Park, making quick progress inside the shuttered home of The Melting Pot.
With a name inspired by a slang term for poorly translated English words, the 2,027-square-foot restaurant will be upgraded with a new 1,500-square-foot, 78-seat patio on the Merialdo Lane side of the property, providing views of Charleston Boulevard.
The menu combines classic Cantonese preparations with Western influences, with inspiration from “Macau, India, Singapore” thrown in. An early proposal revealed that each dish would arrive with “its own wine pairing, served on unique handmade stone pottery” and plans to cater to “business luncheons, country club members, worldly travelers, and high earning families.”
Customers can to sit inside or out, at 21-seat bar, in the small, eight-seat lounge near the front entrance, or in the main lounge that can accommodate 92 diners.
An estimated debut date has not been announced.
