A Family Tradition
This edgy, modern Italian gem is the brainchild of owner Chris Lanza whose lineage traces back to the acclaimed Rosario’s in Royal Palm Beach. The food here is a tribute to his family’s reputation and features a good selection of meat, seafood and pasta. Some of our favorite small plates include the Charred Octopus with grilled pineapple and eggplant caponata; the Zucchini Blossoms, fried and stuffed with three cheese mouse and tomato sauce; and the Grilled Sausage with Broccoli Rabe. Both the fresh house-made pasta and imported Italian (whole wheat and gluten free also available) come in a variety ways: Squid Ink Linguine with shrimp, calamari, tomato, white wine and garlic; Rigatoni with mild Italian sausage ragu and goat cheese; and Pappardelle with a heart bolognese sauce to name just a few. Lanza’s tribute also includes several wonderful meat, poultry and seafood dishes. Topping the list is his VealScallopini and Yellowtail Snapper. Magnifico!

Jimmy Mills won’t fence in his food.
His menu at Fries to Caviar in Boca Raton has no fixed theme and is suffused with what he calls “borderless flavors.” A childhood growing up on his family’s farm in Wallback, West Virginia, fostered an appreciation for sustainability and seasonal provisions. He developed a talent for exquisite yet simple food by working for David Ruggerio of Le Chantilly and Charlie Palmer of Aureole, and also spending two years in Paris learning the art of French cooking. These experiences have led to an endless stream of gastronomic delights, from braised rabbit with bacon and fennel on buttered noodles to the namesake french fries with salmon caviar. Fries to Caviar also offers a feast for the eyes with custom ash-wood furnishings (built by Mills), a 20-seat bar, and a coral-stone patio with native flora, palms, and bamboo.

Who’s The Bossi?
When Louie Bossi made a massive splash in Fort Lauderdale, Todd Herbst of Big Time Restaurant Group knew he had a hit on his hands. Herbst and his partners are set to welcome a second location in Boca Raton and have a Delray osteria planned for next year. Drawing inspiration from midcentury modern design, the 8,000-square-foot ristorante features antique copper tables, vintage lighting, and a massive oak-carved fireplace similar to ones Herbst saw during an Italian wine trip. Chef Bossi’s large preparations (think charcuterie platters loaded with house-cured salumis and 12 styles of made-from-scratch pastas) shine in this bigger-is-better setting. Custom neo-Neapolitan pizzas, like the meat-lover’s quattro carne pizza, are baked in a 900-degree, wood-burning oven for 90 seconds. If this all sounds like a calorie overload, don’t worry: There’s a regulation bocce ball court outside for after-dinner calisthenics.

Serious Cheeseburger In Paradise
James Beard–nominated chef and two-time Cutthroat Kitchen winner, Brian Cartenuto, hits it out of the park with this southern-style burger joint named after his 110 lb Great Dane. Novel starters like Fried Pickles, Mini Corn Dogs and Hush Puppies with hot peanut butter centers are totally drool-worthy. The burgers are way over the top but the totally insane Tucker Duke’s Burger – a beefy half pounder stacked with a tower of fried onion rings, mixed greens, Cheddar and American cheeses and special “Tucker” sauce which is all sandwiched on an onion-studded roll – is about as decadent as it gets. Cartenuto also adds a personal twist to to the rest of his comfort food menu. Slam dunks: Nacho tots topped with pulled pork; sweet fries with apple butter and fluff; and Sriracha honey glazed fried chicken with a cheddar waffle, bacon and arugula. So freakin’ delicious!

A native of Naples, Italy, Chef-owner Franco Guardascione and wife Fiorella have created a warm and inviting eatery that’s all about family and wonderfully delicious homestyle food. Perfectly cooked pastas yield to the bite and come with a choice of sauces (the delightfully creamy gorgonzola over homemade gnocchi is particularly wonderful). Veal, chicken and pork dishes are also terrific with standouts like the fork-tender Veal Scallopini Marsala with fresh mushrooms in a delicate wine laced sauce; the Chicken Scarpariello with sweet Italian sausage and fresh mushrooms in a heady balsamic garlic white wine sauce; and the Pork Chops Pizzaiola prepared with caper, black-olive and garlic-studded marinara. We could
go on and on but you get the picture. Mangia!

Authentic Haitian Cuisine
There are a lot of “Caribbean-influenced” restaurants in South Florida but rarely do you find true Haitian cuisine like you’ll get here. Bold and spicy flavors rooted in African, Caribbean, Spanish and French heritage are the hallmark of each handcrafted dish. Start with the Chicken Wings marinated in ginger sauce or the Twoubadou Salad – tossed greens with your
choice of conch, shrimp, chicken or salmon. For mains, try the Legim Militon, a spicy, complex stew-like dish of braised eggplant, cabbage, carrots, peppers and spinach slow-cooked until it’s rib-sticking thick. For meat-eaters, the Le Griot, a traditional dish of deep fried pork with spicy pikliz, (a pickled vegetable slaw with white-vinegar-soaked Scotch bonnet peppers, carrots, and cabbage) is an absolute “must try.”

Let’s start by saying that the pizza here is just unreal. Handcrafted with dough made with water delivered from all the way from Brooklyn and then baked in a huge 900ª coal oven, it’s the gold standard for the perfect pie. But that’s only the beginning. The fresh pasta, sausage and mozzarella are all hand crafted in house as are all of the sauces which are made with San Marzano tomatoes imported directly from Naples. Standouts: Nonna’s Gigantic Meatball with ricotta cheese, and San Marzano Gravy; the butter poached Colossal
Shrimp Scampi; and the V & A Lasagne with slow cooked beef and pork ragu. Be sure to save room for the Tiramisu – sinful!

Outstanding Modern Indian Cuisine
This acclaimed Indian restaurant is known for its modern interpretation of classic dishes. Everything here is made fresh daily from the poori and roti to the parantha and naan. If you love barbecue, try the bright red Tandoori Chicken, marinated and baked in a traditional clay pot until it slides off the bone. Lamb and Seafood dishes, prepared in several Indian styles, are extraordinary. If you don’t eat meat or just love vegetables, the menu features crispy Tamarind Eggplant, Samosas (fritters filled with fresh veggies), paper-thin crepes called Dosa, wrapped around luscious spiced lentils, spinach and more, as well as Vegan specialties. Inside Tip: The daily lunch buffet here is soooo affordable and has an amazing selection of Indian specialty dishes, regional offerings and vegetarian options.

Award-Winning Ethiopian Cuisine
Ethiopian-born Chef/Owner, Lojo Washington, creates critically acclaimed home-style “soul” food at South Florida’s only Ethiopian restaurant. Her exotic menu combines favorite classics with contemporary dishes featuring authentic Ethiopian flavors packaged in mouth watering morsels. You’ll find a large selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, here, including a Vegetable Sampler which allows you to taste 3 – 5 native vegetable dishes all served on a long platter. Another Must Try: the Siga Tibs. One of just three meat dishes on the menu, this marinated beef dish is cooked with fresh onion, tomato and a touch of rosemary. Simply wonderful! And don’t miss out on the Doro Wot: a plump chicken leg stewed in a dense spice ladened broth until it falls off the bone into small delectable pieces. Served with a hardboiled egg, it’s considered to be the “National Dish of Ethiopia.”
