Best new in Delray Beach

Anything new and worth a visit in Delray Beach?
Any price, any cuisine.

  1. If you are a fan of Casa D'Angelo in Boca, as I am, you might like D'Angelo Pizza, Wine Bar and Tapas that recently opened in the Shoppes at Addison Place.

    1. Mussel Beach just opened Friday. It's a concept I've heard of elsewhere - mussels prepared about 15 different ways. I have not been yet. At previous site of Rotelli (same mgmt. team I believe). I am not expecting anything amazing, but it might be a nice option once in a while. We'll see.

      El Camino will be opening any day now. From the Park Tavern folks. I have high hopes for this Mexican / Tequila bar concept, next to The Office on NE 2nd. It sure is a very nice room and a gorgeous bar, perhaps the nicest in Delray. Hopefully the food will be as good.

      Saltwater Brewery will also be opening any day now. No food - and another spot that's going to be easy on the eyes based on previews I've seen. The million dollar question will be - is the beer any good?

      Then there's 3rd and 3rd but I try to keep that to myself. Mostly its a cool little hideaway with an excellent vibe.

        No food at Saltwater Brewery? That's a shame, we were hoping for a local place to eat that was not downtown.

          I'd actually rather they did one thing great... than several so-so.

          It's been a massive enough operation installing a complete brewery plus front of the house bar / serving. Adding a restaurant as well ... well maybe later. They'll have food trucks I believe... which can be a nice way to try all the different types that are out there.

          In breaking news... they are indeed opening soon: Tomorrow they will be announcing the specific date.

          1. re: smartie

            Breweries that serve their own beer are not permitted under FL law to serve food. Hence the food trucks.

              Right. And in related news... they open at noon today.

            The beers that I've sampled at Saltwater Brewery were extremely well made. They're full of flavor and well balanced. I reviewed them on my blog:
