Fresh seafood, a wonderful atmosphere and an even better happy hour bar menu collide at City Fish Market in Boca Raton. For years we’ve been hitting up this spot, attached to the Hilton Boca Raton Suites, on Glades Road, and recently returned to take pictures of the restaurant and some of their delicious seafood dishes.
Funky Buddha Brewery in Broward County’s Oakland Park neighborhood is sort of the new kid on the block. Opening up to rave reviews back in June of 2013 (though the partners have been brewing themselves as Funky Buddha since 2010), this beer hall serves what they brew (and slightly more) while remaining a class-act and fun place for the entire family.
Delray Marketplace in Delray Beach is a new-ish outdoor center with a bevy of shopping and dining options serving residents of Delray Beach and those in nearby Boca Raton and Boynton Beach. Restaurants are currently open (see our past mentions of Burt & Max’s and The Grind Cafe) and also still in the build-out phase as of this time. We can expect a few more to open their doors as the season moves on. One of the popular spots that you will find, right now, is Shula Burger, Don Shula’s fast-casual entry in the hottest segment in the country right now; burgers and fries.
Bobby’s Burger Palace, Iron Chef and The Food Network’s biggest personality Bobby Flay’s fast-casual burger joint, is opening its first Florida location today in Dadeland Mall in Miami.
In all of the times that we had walked up and down Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, The Office had always eluded us. We had chosen other spots to dine and had meals that were both mediocre and wonderful. Once we had the opportunity to try The Office’s cuisine we felt as though we robbed ourselves of many months of gastronomic bliss. Our loss is now our readers’ gain.
Public House a new bar and restaurant has just opened this last weekend in Fort Lauderdale. This spot on SW 2nd Street looks to be a great spot to sit down and enjoy a few drinks (over 100 beers), a meal and the latest games on their array of televisions over the bar area (30 of them, waiting to be watched). Each night they have specials and events, so it’s worth checking out their website before you go.
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.
Reported: Franchise rights to all of Florida for Bareburger restaurants acquired. But by whom and when / where will they open?
We’ve been big fans of Bareburger restaurants in the NYC area for quite a few years. We go our first taste of this organic and all-natural burger haven at one of their locations on the Upper East Side and most recently on Long Island at their new Great Neck location. A well placed source alerted us that all of the Franchise rights have been sold for the State of Florida to one entity, but we don’t have any more detail than that. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open wide for this burger hotspot and will alert our readers of what we can muster up as soon as it comes through the wire.
