Deerfield or Pompano Beach area

Hello Hounds.

New Yorker coming to Deerfield Beach next week for one night and looking for recomendations for a good, hip place to eat in or around Deerfield or Pompano Beach (or even Ft. Lauderdale)? Ideally a place with a great foie gras preparation - had a great one in Delray but want to try a new place - and interesting menu.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Hip? In Deerfield? ;)

    Don't laugh, but there's this tiny burger place with fantastic burgers and one of them has foie gras on it. Charm City Burgers on Hillsoboro, east of Federal. Probably better for lunch though.

    Japango is a sushi/Asian restaurant out west on 441 just north of Hillsboro. Kevin, the chef/owner has foie gras on some of his menu items. Plus he will create something special if you ask your server. He's wonderful!

    Now... where did you go in Delray?

      Thanks for the recs. Any thought on Cafe Maxx?

      In Delray I went to Tryst. Was very good, but some of three of our dining companions were in a rush, so we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked.

        Love Cafe Maxx! Wish I could go there more often. Love Tryst too.

        Here's their calendar with specials. They still have that summer thing going on as well.

          I should add... while I love their food, I don't find them to be particularly hip and trendy (Maxx). It's a nice restaurant though.

            Good food is more important that hip and trendy...used the terms to try and get away from the "old guard" type restaurants, if you know what I mean....
