Fast-Casual Eatery Rebrands, Expands


By: Shaina Wizov Contributing Writer

Fast-casual restaurant, The Chickpea, has rebranded and expanded its menu to include breakfast bowls in addition to its popular Mediterranean-inspired bowls and wraps. The newest location in West Boca officially opened to the public late fall 2018, joining its sister locations in Downtown West Palm Beach, Midtown Palm Beach Gardens and soon-to-open Boynton Beach Town Center.

Anzo’s vast menu caters to all dietary lifestyles, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or Paleo. The ingredients are inspired by flavors from all over the world. Their mission? To be a uniting space for people by innovating one of our most communal moments: mealtime. It’s safe Anzo offers endless options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

For breakfast, choose from rice pudding, overnight oats, organic Açai sorbet, Greek yogurt, or a mixed berry Açai yogurt smoothie. The topping choices include fresh fruit, granola, honey, chia seeds and more, allowing you to mix and match each time you visit the restaurant and have fun with flavors and textures.

But the real fun happens when you go for lunch or dinner. Create your own bowl, either grain-or green-based, and go to town with tons of add-in selections. You can even pair your meal with a cup of house-made tea or fresca, or craft soda. Sides include pita crisps and dips or a fresh fruit cup, or if your sweet tooth is calling out, grab some gluten-free chocolate chip cookies or a piece of walnut and pistachio Baklava. Soon, they’ll also have 100 percent hand-crafted, soy and gluten-free seasonal dessert jars.

There are countless build-your-own-bowl concepts in the area, but Anzo stands out with its unique Mediterranean-inspired proteins, vegetables and sauces — things like braised lamb, falafel and tofu-chickpea tagine, shawarma-spiced cauliflower, baba ganoush, and harissa-carrot salad.

Anzo is located at 20642 State Road 7 in Boca Raton. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
