About Farmer’s Table

We want to be YOUR community restaurant—the one you choose for your special family occasion or your corporate dining event—the one you walk into and feel like you are among family and friends. And the one where you know you will only be served food that has been sourced cleanly and responsibly so you know you are eating the best our planet has to offer. You will never find any chemical, hormone, pesticide or antibiotics in our proteins. We call it our “never-ever” menu.
Farmer’s Table Boca Raton offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Adjacent to the Wyndham Hotel, our warm, earthy space offers inside dining at the bar, in the spacious main dining room or in private dining areas, while outdoor seating is available on our tropical patio.

Mitchell Robbins has been an advocate of healthy living since he was young.  Always active in sports, he put fitness first and developed a lifestyle of healthy eating and an appreciation of helping others eat well, too.
“I have always eaten simply and conscientiously,” he says. “I like to know the sources of my food—that it was grown cleanly and sustainably. I like fresh fruits, vegetables and grains in their simplest form.”
Robbins has been in the real estate industry, primarily in the multi-family arena, for the past 25 years and purchased the Wyndham Hotel Boca Raton a few years back. Soon after, he moved from his native Boston to the Boca/Delray area with the vision of creating a community-based hotel with a core philosophy of wellness. To that end, the Wyndham now features a yoga studio with 33 classes; a fitness trainer; a renovated pool and tropical courtyard; and TrendTea lounge, featuring loose leaf teas, coffee and healthy snacks, a gourmet tea, coffee and healthy snack lounge. 
Mitchell met his wife, Allison, in a yoga class, and three children later, they dreamed of living in a healthy community with dining options serving the freshest and most nutritious food, one where they could bring their children knowing they would eat delicious, natural food with no hormones, chemicals or additives. They also wanted a place that was based on a spirit of community and affordable for all.
So, after meeting Joey Giannuzzi, Farmer’s Table was born, which fit perfectly into Robbins’ plans for the Wyndham. “We want Farmer’s Table to be the community center where people can grab a quick bite at the café or linger over a meal in the dining room or on the garden terrace,” he says.
Farmer’s Table seeks to create “community through food” with events and activities, including educational dinners, live music, kids’ programs and more. “We want people to always be thinking, ‘I wonder what’s going on at Farmer’s Table today,’” Robbins says.
Robbins has been hands on during every stage of development for the restaurant, from menu conception to design to staffing. He hopes that Farmer’s Table will become a regular part of guests’ daily lives, where they can come several times a week and experience quality food and service time and again. “When you come into our restaurant, you’ll be greeted like an old friend,” he says. “You’ll feel like you’ve come home.”
Robbins lives in Delray Beach with his wife, Allison, and three children, Jancie, Lily and Avery.

For Licensing:
Farmer’s Table is more than a restaurant—we are a destination for the whole community. A place to grab lunch on the go or linger over a delicious farm-to-table meal with family, friends and business associates. A place to learn about and celebrate a lifestyle of wellness. A place to renew, refresh, enjoy life while enjoying clean, consciously sourced meals.

Joseph Giannuzzi, Co-Owner:

Joey Giannuzzi brings more than 25 years of restaurant experience to Farmer’s Table. Born in Staten Island, N.Y., he was raised in Wellington and developed a passion for surfing and cooking as a teenager. He started working in restaurants at the age of 16, mainly so he could surf during the day and cook at night.
His love of cooking quickly took precedence. It wasn’t long before he started climbing the ranks, working with some of South Florida’s best chefs and restaurateurs at award-winning establishments. He recently hung his toque at The Green Gourmet in Delray Beach, where he pleased his guests with outstanding healthy food and unwavering hospitality.
In his relentless pursuit of great food, Giannuzzi began to notice a change in the “fresh” ingredients being used at restaurants. Waxy, genetically modified and flavorless were becoming the norm. He started working with local farms and purveyors to source fresh and clean ingredients.
Partnering with Mitchell Robbins for Farmer’s Table, Giannuzzi set out to create a restaurant that would have a positive impact on the community and truly change the South Florida dining scene for the better. Now, he’s showcasing his flair for understated food that wows with big flavors and creative presentation.
“I like using quality ingredients that only need a brush of olive oil or sea salt to really shine,” he says. “I like paying attention to sustainability and environmental issues that come along with procuring food. I also believe in minimal processing and demand that everything is made in house so we know exactly what is in the food we serve and can be proud of it.”
He enjoys managing all the moving parts of the operation, he says: “I like getting my arms around the whole thing and figuring out how to manage each detail. A great chef once told me, ‘The chef who manages the most details well has the best kitchen and therefore the best food.’”
Giannuzzi believes that the restaurant’s clean approach to preparation—omitting deep fat frying, microwaving, processed foods, high fructose corn syrup and the like—will truly distinguish Farmer’s Table on the local dining scene. He’s excited for guests to try such standout menu items as the Cucumber “Tartare,” Zahtar Spiced Salmon, flatbreads and mocktails.
Giannuzzi resides in Delray Beach with his wife, Britt.
