I am off on Friday to Singer Island. We go often, my
byfriends family has a place there. But... I am sick
of all the places we eat, both in WPB and Palm Beach.
Any recommendations in the area? Perhaps, those you
recommend will not be the same ones we have frequented
year in and year out.

BTW: Anyone try Roly's (sp?) in the Publix shopping
center on US1? It opened last year.

Thanks, I cannot wait to be AWAY!!!

  1. I'm going to be only a little helpful 'cos everytime
    we visit that coast of Florida, I'm hoping it will be
    our LAST time, (no offense, but it seems that our
    entire city relocates there for the winter, and I want
    to feel like I'm AWAY when I'm away!). Anyway, what's
    the name of that super-trendy street in W.P.B?,
    Hibiscus, Gardenia or some flower. We ate at some
    "hot" place there and had a very mediocre, pricey,
    forgettable meal. I have a feeling most of those
    restaurants are like that. Some friends like eating
    and drinking at the Martini Bar (or something like
    that). We glanced at the menu and passed. I know there
    are some decent Thai restaurants around but we missed
    them. We went to one that was SO bad, we got our food,
    packed it up, left and threw it out without eating.
    I've never done that before. We do love the pizza at
    Lenore's, they have two W.P.B. locations, They are
    always extremely busy, and please, I don't mean to
    sound cruel or insensitive, (I'm not, truly!!!!), but
    it was very disconcerting to eat there last time;
    every single table had someone with an oxygen tank or
    other life-prolonging machinery. I kept waiting
    nervously for an ambulance to arrive any moment. I'm
    sure I'm making this trip sound more attractive by the
    minute! I know there are some good places in Palm
    Beach,like Bice, and it certainly is beautiful. If YOU
    find any treats, post back. I'd like to know for
    future reference.

      My Father lives in a town called Tequesta which is 19 miles above West Palm. His favorite place is called Pep's . It is right on A1A in Tequesta. He likes it for two reasons. 1. It is very reasonably priced. 2. They have the best fried oysters he's ever eaten. Fried oysters is one of his passions. They also fry other items very well. Fresh , fresh fish right out of the ocean. They will broil or saute. Caveat Emptor / When you dine here you are going for the food. It kind of reminds of me of a reconverted fast food joint.However the oysters are certainly worth the trip.Have a great time and be sure to wear sunblock!

          I agree that during the "SEASON" it is so annoying
          however, we tend to go during the off times. We LOVE
          the beach and don't mind the heat.

          What we do also love is Publix. Living in Manhattan
          you don't find many large supermarkets. It is like
          Disney World to us. We buy everything and usually
          cook most nights-we love to cook. The place is right
          on the beach and eating on the terrace is a treat so...

          However, I thought I might try to find something
          different this time. Sometimes we go to Bice or
          Charlies Crab or the like but I thought maybe, just
          maybe there may be an escape!

          I will let you know if I find anything.

        2. I know its probably too late, but our favorite restaurant in the Jupiter area is called the Reef. It is on US1 on the west side of the street in a small shopping center. The Reef is a small restaurant, where there is often a wait during the busy winter season. The menu specializes in seafood, very fresh. There portions are very generous.

          1. Tradition is just over the west side of the Blue Heron Bridge, but call to see if it's open.
            In Palm Beach try Acquario, on Worth Ave in the Esplanade. Downtown, Spoto's Oyster Bar and Capri Blue. Lake Worth, Sassafras.
            Good eating.
