Ten Restaurants You Need to Visit in Northwood Village
Chef Roberto Villegas is the man behind Table 427. The former executive chef for popular North Palm Beach Italian restaurant Mangia and the Pelican Cafe in Lake Park, Villegas' dream was to run his own establishment. This year, that's just what he did with Table 427. Inside, the romantic atmosphere is just the spot to enjoy Villegas' brand of international cuisine with its fusion of Spanish, Italian, and American dishes that cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant proudly offers three signature dishes, including the chef's recipe for huevos rancheros, featuring house-made corn tortillas smothered in two eggs over-easy with black beans, cheddar cheese, and a fresh salsa verde.
Malakor Thai Cafe
Born in Yasothon Province in Thailand, owner and chef Nopporn "Noopy" Areerak has been cooking true Thai food since a young age, beginning with his mother and supplemented with formal training from Oriental Thai Cooking School at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok. His restaurant is popular with the area locals who know this small gem well. The tiny stand-alone establishment isn't located on the main Northwood Road drag, but -- like it's location -- the small establishment is its own tropical retreat. Inside, you'll be lost in a sea of color, hand-painted murals from wall to ceiling, which allow you to sit under a glittering night sky, indoors or out. The extensive menu is well-rounded, with familiar Thai dishes and the chef-owner's own special creations.
