Leaving Boston in April of 2019 and coming to South Florida for business, Delray’s Shiitake Asian Bistro located in the BocaRay Plaza celebrated its grand opening in February of 2020. The wife-and-husband chefs Radtanawree Dongparteep and Chanin Kluaytrakul (a.k.a.Rena and Chanin) served up full-flavored meals such as: Chicken Gyoza, Chicken Satay, Pad Thai, Salmon, and Crispy Veggie Rice Cake.
Actress and Country Music singer star Erin Reese DeJarnette was also in attendance. DeJarnette, who is mostly known for her roles in Brat’s teen drama ‘Chicken Girls’ and the Dolly Parton TV film, ‘Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love’, gave a speech on the overall support she has gotten from the community and her excitement for the restaurant.
Rena and Chanin thanked the media for the support and Rena stated her mom is a chef and an inspiration too. With a new region and business under their belt, Rena and Chanin mentioned that they thank all for the support and the weather in South Florida is a lot nicer than Boston. @Shiitakedelray
