Terra Fiamma at the Delray Marketplace in Delray Beach is one of the few restaurants at that shopping center that exceeded our expectations. We’ve had experiences that have left us wanting more at the other “hot spots” but Tierra Fiamma was chosen as a lunch spot and with our dining experience, we can’t wait to go back for a full-fledged dinner.
Just shy of its second birthday (they opened on May 10, 2012 – and they will be celebrating), we had the opportunity to explore Due South Brewing Co. in Boynton Beach at opening, on a Tuesday. Noon during the week isn’t the busiest of times; but that’s the way that we prefer it when we have our camera in our hands.
Seasons 52 has always been known for their mini desserts, served up in a shot glass and baked to perfection. They’re announcing today a series of new mini indulgence flavors that are both seasonal and permanent to their menu.
Bäd Ragaz Restaurant & Bar in Boynton Beach is no longer (in name, anyway). The restaurant known just as much for its huge beer selection as the food that it served has now been transformed and renamed to Lucertola Ristorante & Birreria. Billing itself as an elegant italian concept, we’re sure to see some fine italian cuisine to go with that beer selection, which is expected to stay. The former executive chef from Tramonti of Delray Beach is now in charge; leading the kitchen into its new lease on life.
Update: The new location will be in the new Trader Joe’s shopping center on 441.
Details are scant at this moment, but we’ve been alerted to the news that Flakowitz Bakery and Restaurant, known for its wide selection of baked goods, bagels and other great breakfast specials will be opening a new, third location in Wellington.
Samara Supermarket, a (somewhat hidden) treasure trove of Middle Eastern ingredients and various other wares has recently received their permit to build a bakery section within their store, located on N. Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach. Up until this point, the year-old store has been sticking to pre-packaged goods but with permission to open things up, we should expect a wonderful selection of freshly baked goods to go.
Zinburger East is currently building out their new location at the Boca Town Center Mall, on Glades Road in Boca Raton. If you’re not familiar with Zinburger East’s brand, they’re primarily based in the northern part of the country with locations in New Jersey, Long Island, Virginia and North Carolina.
Sand Bar, located on S. Ocean Blvd. in Delray Beach is an aptly named night spot that has a relaxed, college-like vibe, great nightly drink specials and a sensibly priced menu to top it off. Part of the Boston’s on the Beach group of restaurants in Delray, when the weather is right, this is one of our go-to spots to grab a drink with friends, kick off our shoes and relax.
TooJay’s Gourmet Deli’s seem to be everywhere in South Florida. Within a 30-minute radius there are 10+ to choose from, so no matter what county you live in, you’ll never be far away. Started back in 1981 in Palm Beach, TooJay’s takes the “Jay” from both of the co-founders’ names (Jay Katzenberg and Jay Brown). The TooJay’s that we recently visited is located in the Polo Club Shoppes in Boca Raton just near the ritzy Polo Club residences.
