Ten Best Seafood Restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach Counties
New Englanders are crazy about many things: the Patriots, the Red Sox, their love of Narragansett Lager, and, most importantly, massive piles of critters from the sea. So, there was no way we could compile a list of seafood spots without a pick to represent the great Northeast. Here, you'll find the favorite regional beer as well as everything indicative of the area, such as steamers (medium-sized clams in the shell), whole-belly Ipswich clams, lobster rolls, and some of the finest New England chowder you can find this far south. So, pahk ya cah, and eat up!
Rack's facebook Scallop and Pork Belly
With a cool nautical vibe and menu of responsibly sourced seafood delicacies, this Delray Beach spot incorporates a chic modern aesthetic with reinvented classics all the way from the dining room to the plate. From the large raw bar display of the day's catch to simply prepared dishes in the steam kettle or pecan wood grill to composed dishes like seared scallop and pork belly ($25) and shrimp and grits ($25), the spot offers the best mix of seafood traditions you can find with a modern vibe. Look out for specials like $1 oysters during happy hour and half-off bottles of wine on Monday.
