The Sports Page Bar & Grill
In a city at risk of sports bar fatigue, the new Sports Page Bar and Grill in West Palm Beach is serving up something new and different. It's not the 47 high-definition TVs, nor is it the menu highlighting the best of standard New England fare. What makes Sports Page different -- and a little cooler -- is the 40-foot strip of snow-like frost that runs the length of the bar where you can rest your glass assured you'll always have an ice-cold beverage. It's all thanks to the bar's cutting-edge Chill-Rite draft system, with ice taps designed to pour your pint at a perfect 32 degrees, as well as the custom dry-frost "rail" running the length of the bar -- all of it guaranteed to deliver the coldest beer in town. Co-owner Rich Bonzani, a New England native, opened Sports Page last November with longtime friend Brian Lamb. Both men hail from upstate Connecticut but relocated to South Florida to fulfill their lifelong dream of opening a bar and restaurant together. The partners said they chose the Northwood district of West Palm Beach for its unique location that several specialty restaurants call home. Like the bar, the menu is also a compilation of some of their favorite eats from across the Northeast. The menu begins with the "First Quarter," a long list of appetizers that range from Italian-themed eats like triangle-shaped mozzarella sticks, fried calamari, and fried ravioli to standard sports bar picks like nachos, quesadillas, loaded potato skins, and wings. A top pick, said Bonzani: the fried pickles, thin circular slices fried to perfection with a house breading. If you make it into the "First Quarter" or "Half Time," choose from soups and salads or one of the house specialties like lasagna, chicken Parmesan, and baked penne pasta. You can also "build your own" hot dog and burger with plenty of free add-ons -- even Cheese Whiz. The spot also serves some of the best New England clam chowder around, according to Bonzani.

Centro and Allora
A family-owned establishment, Centro and Allora are two restaurants in one. Next door but not connected, Allora is the casual extension of Centro, offering a laid-back, café-style setting. Even so, the eats are far from provincial; you'll find a variety of hand-tossed, gourmet, thin-crust pies served alongside pasta dishes and burgers. Yes, burgers. Looking for more hearty Italian fare? Centro is the slightly upscale, white-tablecloth trattoria next door, complete with piano bar, homemade pastas, and a wine menu to match. The atmosphere is hip, urban, and inviting, with gorgeous exposed brick and wood-beam ceilings and endless glass doors often thrown open to allow patrons a choice of outdoor sidewalk seating -- and homemade Italian rum cake for dessert.

You missed the busiest place in Northwood - Fresh Catch Seafood - they have the lowest prices and best seafood in Northwood - and no one goes to the Jamaican place but Jamaicans & Haitians - the food is un-eatable - do you eat oxtail?

Sorry I wasn't clear. Their food is disgusting. I was so excited about trying it based on these reviews. I thought someone was surely playing a joke on me.
