Palm Beach Resident Tim Gannon Opens New Restaurant BOLAY!
Palm Beach Resident Tim Gannon is launching a new and unique dining experience that be available for a Palm Beach town, it just isn’t ours. It will open in Royal Palm Beach next month. Bolay, a build-your-own salad bowl style of restaurant, will be opening in early February 2016.
Bolay’s creators Chef Tim Gannon of Palm Beach, Outback Steakhouse co-founder, and his son Chris Gannon are aiming for a “perfect combination of millennial thinking and processes’ in regards to food and technology paired with old school hospitality mentality” with the opening of the new restaurant. It will be a dining experience sure to live up to Palm Beach expectations.
The idea is for customers to be able to build their own bowls, similar to Moe’s or Chipotle. But, the uniqueness and quality comes in the ingredients. Chris Gannon told us, “Bolay’s bowls will feature bases of kale-currant salad, quinoa, black or basmati rice, or gluten-free cilantro noodles, to which vegetables such as broccoli, mushrooms, sprouts, cauliflower or roasted butternut squash, and proteins such as chicken, steak, tuna, tofu or pork tenderloin, can be added. The base bowls can be customized with a variety of sauces ranging from lemongrass tamari to carrot-ginger, and possible add-ons such as tomatoes, cheese and herbs. Paired with cold pressed juices, infused teas, local craft beer, and tap wine.”

Chris said that he and his father’s inspiration came from the cultural shift in the food movement. People are increasingly more aware of what is going into their bodies.
For now, the main goal for Bolay is to be an amazing restaurant that will exceed customers’ expectations. As for the future, Chris says that the customers will let him know when they are doing well and ready for expansion. For him and his father, it is about what the customers want and need.
In a closing statement Chris said, “One of the wonderful aspects of Bolay is that there are many businesses that are started from one generation and passed down to the next, but this one is created between two generations of Gannon’s. And who better of a restaurant partner than one of the greatest restauranteurs of all time, my father-Tim Gannon. We are staying true to his two simple concepts- The only thing sacred in our business, is the customers intent to return. And Bold crave-able comeback flavors.”
