Comfort Food – and, So Much More

When we’re in southeast Florida and need comfort food or want a comfortable setting at the end of a hard day TooJay’s is never far away. Thankfully! It’s dependable, it’s consistent, it’s good!!toojays-door

Comfort can come in a crock of French onion soup, a caesar salad, Mom’s meatloaf or a traditional turkey dinner. Equally well done are classic deli dishes  – hot pastrami, nova salmon on a bagel, blintzes and matzo ball soup. Oh, I can’t forget their rye bread.

On our latest trip we tried two of TooJay’s Gourmet Specialties. Judy oohed and aahed over the crabmeat stuffed tilapia; baked to perfection and topped with a rich francaise sauce. Served over rice pilaf and fresh veggie of the day – lovely tender asparagus spears. I opted for a chicken and portabella mushroom marsala with roasted potatoes and asparagus. Soup or salad accompany dinner along with a plate of  rye bread – and plenty of butter. We both chose salad with blue cheese dressing, they came fresh and crisp. Servings were generous with half of each entree going into to go boxes. Judy oohed and aahed just as much when she feasted on the leftover tilapia. Our waitress was attentive without being invasive.

I’ve saved the best till last. TooJay’s Ultimate Combination – slices of three of their most popular cakes; banana dream, carrot and chocolate layer. As the menu says this is the ultimate dessert. Perfect for sharing, if you’re feeling generous. We order the “Ultimate” to go. For the price of $5.25 I expect thin slices of cake. When I opened the box I was amazed at the big thick pieces. I had a very bites every evening for almost a week. The banana dream truly was a dream, too bad I’ll have to wait until the next Florida trip for another slice.

Deli sandwiches, gourmet dinners and delectable desserts – TooJay’s defines comfort and so much more.

When You Go: You’ll find more than two dozen TooJay’s scattered around mid and south Florida. We like the one in Jupiter’s Bluffs Shopping Center. TooJay’s Original Gourmet Deli serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as carry-out and delivery
