Committed to the community of Deerfield, the owners of the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort finish their multi million dollar renovation by opening two contemporary dining options and a Gelateria all serving top quality foods at a great value. The $1 million restaurant construction opened the restaurants up to views of the beach and Atlantic ocean, and provided two different dining concepts; one classic Italian and one a more casual burger restaurant as well as an authentic Italian gelateria.

“The $1 million restaurant construction has brought 50 jobs and the restaurants themselves add 60 positions, continuing our positive impact on the local economy," added Cheryl Chase principal of Deerfield 21, ownership of the hotel and restaurants.

Burger Craze seats 75 guests. Its modern interior reflects the cool bright turquois color of the nearby beach, blending fun and top quality ingredients to take the American classic hamburger to new gastronomic levels. With a choice of certified Angus beef, chicken breast, veggie chipotle black bean, salmon or Kobe beef, Burger Craze offers the Hipster with arugula, shaved Parmesan, prosciutto, and truffle oil, The Caliente with ground chorizo, pepper Jack cheese, guacamole and jalapeno, the Beach Bird Burger with ground turkey, iceberg lettuce, tomato, bacon and garlic aioli. In addition to the burgers, priced from $5.50 to $11, the menu also features hot dogs, salads and side dishes.

For a sweet treat the Vaniglia E Cioccolato Gelateria serves 16 authentic gelato flavors, four sorbets and four sugar-free flavors.
