Help in Delray - 3 Dinners

We're flying down to visit some family next weekend and need help for dinners in the Delray area. We are totally unfamiliar with the area. We're staying at The Seagate on East Atlantic Ave. There's a restaurant in our hotel - The Atlantic Grille? Any feedback? We'd prefer to go to places that are within walking distance of the hotel, though we do have a car. I saw some reviews on 32 East. Is it worth it? I imagine it's pretty hot down there, so we're looking for lighter fare...places focused on fresh seafood.

Any help is much appreciated.

  1. If you're willing to travel a bit north to Jupiter (about 45 minutes) then I recommend you try Little Moir's Food Shack. It's in a strip mall next to Publix but don't let the outside throw you, they serve arguably the best seafood in Florida. Search the Florida board for reviews. Consider going for lunch. It may unfortunately be your last chance ever to enjoy fresh Florida seafood so make the trip if you can.

    1. Check out DaDa's walking distance from your hotel, and real good food

      1. Oh Bumstead, that is a sad sad thought. Unfortunately, we're in town for just a long wknd - I don't foresee us driving to Jupiter.

        Thanks Sam, any other ideas? We'll definitely do Dada's one night.

        1. Amanda: Move your query -- and search -- to the new Miami board, which covers the Delray area. You're staying about 1 1/2 miles south of teeming Atlantic Avenue, which is loaded with several exceptional restaurants. A quick search on that board will provide several recommendations.

          1. Hi Amanda, Delray is a great place for Foodies. For a lighter lunch try Nature's Way Cafe. They're at the corner of Atlantic and Swinton across from Docs. That's about a 10 minute walk to the west. Try the Curry Chicken Salad. If you're a little adventurous a cool place for dinner is The Falcon House on Federal just north of Atlantic. It's a funky tapas place. For Sunday Brunch you must go to the Sundy House on Swinton south of Atlantic. Call for reservations first.
