Order Up: Happy Hours
First, we trucked up to Delray Beach to check out the Triple Eight Lounge at the Falcon House. Long a cherished Delray watering hole, the Falcon House was bought and rebranded four months ago by restaurateur
Karl Alterman. His goal: return the historical cottage to its original form as a cozy small plates and gin joint. So far, he and chef Jimmy Dean have the right idea. They serve kicked-up comfort food, much of it designed to dip and dunk into some cool gourmet sauces. The beer, the good times, and the well-worn vibe combine to make Triple Eight a fun place to spend happy hour.
Also on the docket: Grand Lux Cafe, a chain of international-themed eateries from the creator of the Cheesecake Factory. But don't let that deter you -- Grand Lux Cafe has a posh setting and plenty of interesting appetizer-sized bites to keep you occupied. Finally, we look at Himmarshee Side Bar, whose $2 bar bites through the summer are reason enough to go. The two-for-one drinks and rollicking bar scene just add to that mix.
