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.
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.
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.
From 441 east to Lyons and from Atlantic Avenue north to Boynton Beach Blvd. in Boynton Beach, residents in the area have been screaming for great places to dine. With the introduction of all of the Canyon and Valencia communities, it was only a matter of time before the surrounding area was built up to include a variety of options, but it took quite a while. In the past a 10-minute drive was necessary to have a great meal. In the Canyon Town Center, located at the corner of Lyons and Boynton Beach Blvd., a variety of restaurants have opened to serve these deserving residents. Sushi Yama is one that is a favorite in the area.
Village Tavern in Boynton Beach is a well known restaurant and bar located on Congress and is very popular with the locals. The clientele skews a little older (at least on our visit), so unlike some other spots on a Saturday night, our experience here at Village Tavern was calm, cool and collect.
