Fork & Balls, the newest restaurant located on E. Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale is set to open up shop, officially, on Friday, June 20th. A sleek italian restaurant (with an edgy name) that specializes in meatballs, the early reviews from their soft-opening are very positive and the local area is excited for this new arrival.
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.
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.

Vic & Angelo’s in Delray Beach is one of two locations in the South Florida area. With another location in Palm Beach Gardens, we found their Sunday Brunch (which we enjoyed al fresco) to be a wonderful start to our least favorite day of the weekend.
Happy Hour is a wonderful thing. For some, it’s a perfect time to get together with friends and/or co-workers after work to wind down. For others, it’s a time to relax and prepare for the night ahead. For us, it’s a great opportunity to score 1/2 off of drinks and appetizers at some of the area’s best restaurants. With this in mind, we headed straight to Mario’s Osteria in Boca Raton.
Even though Paddy McGee’s shut its doors not too long ago, signs of life are emerging from this E. Atlantic Avenue spot. We’re spotting a new sign up on the exterior; Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza.
