We decided to have dinner out locally in Delray Beach this evening. Brule Bistro has gone through a major renovation the past year.  It was previously a self serve lunch and to-go place. Now it is a full service Bistro.  Overall the food was pretty good.  The wine list was adequate although the servers really have not had any formal wine training which is to be expected at a small establishment.  The Zucchini blossom tasted great however arrived at the table a little on the cool side.  The Salad with goat cheese was good but a little bit of a cliche.  I had the Tile fish special with lobster risotto and wine sauce reduction.  The fish was  excellent and cooked to perfection.  The risotto was good however the wine sauce was a bit overpowering. Lori had the Diver Scallops which she loved I tasted them and they were ok, a bit over seared their not supposed to be “Southern Fried” Scallops.  To the chef’s credit they were not overcooked in the middle and still remained tender.  For desert we had banana bread pudding with Bourbon ice cream it’s excellent!  We will definitely return and recommend you give it a try.  This is about as good as it gets in Delray Beach.

Atlantic Grill, Delray Beach Florida

Sunday Brunch at the Atlantic Grill, Delray Beach Florida:
Located in the Seagate Hotel the Atlantic Grill is an attractive looking place. The food was hit and miss, basicaly there was no consistency from the kitchen. Ingredients were of average quality and preparation hap hazard. The service was pleasant however unprofessional. My poached eggs arrived very overcooked when I returned them they were returned in better condition however the English muffins were soggy and cold.  Many of the dishes lacked any inspired flavor including the Trio Benedict and Fried Brie. The presentations were not bad and Lori’s lobster frittata was pretty good although very small for 19 dollars. The Pineapple Cake with Coconut Ice Cream desert was made the prior day and was very soggy. We recommend coming in for happy hour this way you can enjoy the lovely ambiance and some of appetizers.

On a lazy Florida summer morning, I decided there has to be something to eat in this state. I went to my computer and signed in to my Zagat.com subscription. I started searching for places to dine in Palm Beach county.  I noticed that Danial Boulud had a Cafe in Palm Beach.  We have been to a couple of his places in NYC and enjoyed them as well as meeting him during lunch at DBGB. I made a reservation for lunch.

Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach has an amazing 3 course lunch for 20 dollars. I’d pay the 20 dollars of the dessert alone it was so good. The service team was highly professional lead by  the manager Andrew.  As one would expect from one of Chef Daniel’s establishments everything is beyond first class.  As you can see from the photos we have returned several times and have been delighted each time
