Jfood looking for help again near Delray
Hello FL Hounds.
Jfood looking for a nice place for Saturday night in Delray of W. Palm.
As a frame of reference, in the past he and mrs jfood have enjoyed Tramontis, City Oyster, Sundy House, 32 East and they are looking along those lines. Thinking of taking the drive to WP and trying Cafe Boulud but was curious if there are any others in Delray.
Jfood I forgot to mention Bamboo Fire. It's a Caribbean restaurant, everything made to order and it is amazing, not posh or upmarket but they have have tables outside. Inside is homely. Do a search on this board for many recommendations for it. Suggest you call for a reservation.
We're really cheap eats folks but occasionally we go someplace nice to celebrate.
You might try Tony Wu's in the plaza on the NE corner of Atlantic and Military.
WWW.Tonywu.com. They are an upscale Chinese restaurant. Some of the best Chinese food I've ever had. They always seem busy. I highly recommend reservations.
In Boynton, off of Woolbright and Federal right on the Intercoastal is Prime Catch. WWW.Primecatchboynton.com. We walked in one time without a reservation and managed to sit outside which was lovely. During snowbird season I would make a reservation. Very nice seafood restaurant.
Along the same lines is Busch's Seafood. WWW.Buschsseafood.com. They are right on the intercoastal off Atlantic (parking lot right behind the Blue Anchor.) The prices have always scared us away but I guess they have to pay for the breath taking view somehow.
Another thing we haven't tried is Delray Yacht Cruises' Friday Dinner cruise which is $35 per person. I am sure the food is probably nothing special but combine it with the sun setting on the water and the lights at night and it must make for a memorable night. They also have a website: WWW.delraybeachcruises.com. They are located in the Veteran's park across the street from the Blue Anchor.

actually I adore Vic and Angelos, it's busy and bustling and trendy and the food is fab. Their apps are great, terrific wings, amazing homemade gnocci with pesto to die for and the pizzas look incredible but I haven't tried them yet.
The new hotel the Seagate has a restaurant called Atlantique Grill which is reviewed in today's Sun Sentinel.
Cabana is good if you haven't tried it, The Office just opened where Louis Louis was but I have yet to try it though there are a few reviews in CH already
I ate at Vic and Angelos once for lunch. They didn't seem to have a lot of lunch type dishes on the menu at the time. Not sure I would go back again, however I am also not sure that you should judge based on my experience alone. One lousy burger and an idiot waiter does not mean you shouldn't try it. I ordered the grass fed organic burger that seemed a little pricy to me and came topped with more parmesan cheese than I would ever put on a burger and the fries were also topped with it.
I have heard people rave about their pizza. Their entrees seemed a little steep but certainly no worse than City Oyster or any of the other restaurants mentioned. The inside is very nice, though the train can be a bit much as they are right on the tracks.

Cafe Boulud won't disappoint and if the weather is nice, eating in their courtyard is pleasant. As for Delray, other than maybe Vic and Angelos and Dada which are a slight step down in the type of food I think you are looking for, but fun and good nonetheless, I can't think of any other resto in Delray that would fit your request. You might also want to consider Michelle Bernstein's in the Omphoy in South Palm Beach for a very good meal with great service and slightly less of a drive north. The view from the restaurant is very pretty but of course, that's only if you go early enough to see it in daylight. http://omphoy.com/indulge/michelle-be...
