Restaurant News: Chipotle Heats Up Fort Lauderdale, Off the Ave Debuts in Delray, Buddha Sky Bar Now Open
• If you're looking for a cozy spot for a pizza, sandwich and cold beer just out of reach of the bustle and din of Delray's Atlantic Avenue, check out the new Off the Ave (19 SE Fifth Ave., 561-450-6768). There's a full bar, a handful of tables and couches, and a short menu of pizzas, salads, and sandwiches, with everything but the medium and large pizzas under 10 bucks. The peace and quiet are free.
• It took awhile but Buddha Sky Bar, the sleek, watering hole and Asian-esque tapas eatery atop the Atlantic Ocean Club in downtown Delray Beach, has finally opened. A small lounge area boasts a bank of windows that affords a stellar view of Delray and beyond, while the bar offers a menu of mixological cocktails and dim summy treats, from shrimp and scallop har gow to skewered cubes of Kobe beef.
