FOOD, DRINK & CULTURE are the inspirations for Downtown Delray’s newest restaurant, AVANT. Steming from the radical guerrilla art movement circa the early 1980’s in NYC where a group of artists took it upon themselves to adorn rundown public areas that begged evolution in lower Manhattan with their handmade unique works of art.

AVANT offers you a vibrant dining experience serving a globally-inspired menu consisting of only the freshest and finest hand-picked ingredients made to order for our small plates, large plates, shared plates and house-made deserts along with the usual and some unusual creative culinary cocktails, craft beers and an appealing wine list.

Impressively, the restaurant design features “over the top lighting with exquisite floors and finishes” created to enhance the original, one-of-a-kind artistic elements by local artists with a particular focus on the expansive canopied patio and bar area spanning the entire front of the courtyard in Pineapple Grove directly across from the Old School Square Park standing apart from all the others.

Our love for food, culture and the arts have inspired a dining experience you can only get at AVANT.
