Chow-worthy in Palm Beach?

I will be in Palm Beach from Oct. 4 to 9th. Any recommendations?

  1. Are you looking for any particular type of cuisine, or price range? How far are you willing to travel and are you by yourself, with a SO, with kids? A few specifics might help garner some suggestions for you. :-)

      PB is dead this time of year. So pretty much anything, especially ethnic or fish, any price range, in the county. Not willing to go more than say 25 miles, so no miami or lauderdale.

        I don't know the PB or WPB areas very well, but here is what I like for casual, no frills restos in PBG/NPB/Juno/Jupiter:

          dined at Coucoupazzo and per my Bubbie, a favorite local sort of Mom and Pop kind of place to frequent when you don't want to go down town or to a hotel. It is:-

          "Coucoupazzo" (means Crazy Chef in Italian)
          Lake Avenue (opposite City Hall - one block west of Dixie)
          Lake Worth Tel. # 585-0320

          There are two Coucopazzos right beside one another. The original is the one on the left (or east) and the bistro, is the one on the right (or west). When making a reservation, ask for the Bistro since both restaurants have the same phone number.

          Not sure the difference between the two but enjoyed it nonetheless.

            Ate at Vietnamese Express Cafe this evening. Very good, especially compared to Albany, NY! Thanks so much for the recommendation.

              Glad you liked it. It's a no frills type place but the food is very good for this area.

              I highly recommend Leftovers in Abacoa, the older Food Shack in Jupiter, or Captain Charlies Reef Grill in Juno for great seafood in casual settings. They are my favorites of all restos here.

            We really liked the Bizaare Avenue Cafe on Lake Ave in Lake Worth. Also Paradiso one block over on Lucerne.
