Best restaurant north of Miami?
We live in NYC but are visiting in Delray. Where's a great meal? Willing to drive anywhere!!!
We recently had dinner at Brule Bistro in Delray and can highly recommend it. Creative, well executed dishes that are seasoned well and cooked beautifully. There is such a paucity of good restaurants in South Florida that when one comes along that is really good it is deserving of praise and should be supported. If you are willing to drive to Ft. Lauderdale, try Market 17 - very creative and unique menu.
Bulla for decadent Spanish Tapas
Tom Jenkins for REAL BBQ(or Swine next to Bulla but its $$$)
Calypso for Fresh Seafood/Caribbean
El Jefe for Mexican Street food
Marumi Sushi for awesome raw fish and seafood
KiKo for more roll centric sushi
Primanti Bros for one of the best sandwiches around
It depends on the type of food you want. Chez Jean Pierre in Palm Beach is great. Buccan also in Palm Beach is very creative. The vibes are different. Chez Jean Pierre is old Palm Beach without being stuffy. Buccan is very hip and trendy with wonderful food. Tramonte in Delray is very good for southern Italian. Cucina d'Angelo is probably the best Italian restaurant in south Florida.
