Need help with one night in Ft. Lauderdale or West Palm

My wife and I will be in Boynton Beach for one night visiting the Grandfather. We are getting sick of the Snappers, Flakowitz, and Park Ave BBQ options we usually eat. We once tried City Place in West Palm, but the options seemed very chain restaurant.

We are looking for something more that reflects local cuisine and less strip mallish. Her Grandfather won't be with us and we are adventurous, although the wife is pregnant. Anything from Ft. Lauderdale to West Palm would be ok. We generally like bistro, asian, latin, and seafood here in NYC. Stone crabs would be ok too.

Thanks for the help!

  1. Try Capriccio Tapas on Boynton (SW corner BB Blvd and Congress a few doors north of Publix) for good seafood and Italian specialties. For a good seafood place, try Catfish Dewey's on Andrews Road (exit I-95 turn left at Commercial right at the next light for Andrews; Dewey's is about 1 mile south of there). Great all-you-can eat specials including stone crabs, crab legs, scallops, catfish, etc. Like an old-time roadhouse - go for the food and reasonable prices

    1. Here are a couple of suggestions.

      Bizaare Avenue Cafe, Upstairs - A little artsy and cool...kind of an antique meets bohemian atmosphere. My wife loved the brie appetizer and her crab cakes and my short rib braise was excellent!

      Old Key Lime House - Casual, Key West ambiance with great waterfront views. I don't recommend this as a 5 star restaurant, rather, it is a great place to sit by the water at sunset for a couple of drinks and good "Old Florida" style seafood.

      Sundy House - Classy & upscale, very romantic old Florida home with private, tropical garden seating. I love recommending this place to couples. It is an oasis in the middle of all that is tacky & touristy about South Florida.

      Other places you may want to look into are Bamboo Fire, Da Da, and Cabana El Rey.

      I hope this helps!
