Every other month, it's something new on the health front.

Pomegranate juice will cure all your ailments. Never mind; it's ridiculously high in sugar.

Kombucha is a miracle immune booster. Oh, wait -- it can kill you.

Now, coconut water is all the rage. Billed as yet another miracle liquid, global sales are reaching $400 million per year.

Great for the coconut industry, but according to an article by the New York Times, most consumers are unaware that marketers have scaled back on their claims of healthful benefits.

As far as we're concerned craft beer is one of the greatest things since sliced bread -- actually, it's better. And while we're all about hanging at a chilled brew bar with friends, sometimes you need to be portable, you just need bottles or cans.

Tomorrow night, Riverside Market is hosting a first-ever bottle release for Native Brewing's Glades Pale Ale.

Myapapaya's Dreamy Greeny is the Best Smoothie on the Planet

Sara Ventiera
Chalk it up to inflation, if you want, but there once was a day in which the mere thought of a $9 smoothie would make you balk.

That was a time in which the vast majority of these "healthy" meal replacements were filled with processed proteins and sickeningly sweet syrup-covered berries.

Things have changed dramatically over the years, and smoothies and juices have returned to a more natural state.

Still, nine bucks seems like a lot to fork out for a non-alcoholic drink. But Myapapaya has one smoothie that has this highly opinionated food writer us coming back several times per week. It's called the Dreamy Greeny, and it is quite possibly, the best smoothie on the entire planet.

A new restaurant has opened off Lucerne Ave. in downtown Lake Worth, taking the space formerly known as Fiorentina, an Italian restaurant that vacated the space over a year ago.

Suri -- which means "pickpocket" in Japanese -- will offer diners what co-owners John Pata and Matthew Barger term alternative American cuisine. Barger has worked as the general manager for Cucina Dell'Arte in Palm Beach and, most recently, The Coach House, formerly the Player's Club in Wellington.

Fork & Balls Looks to Be Another Victory for the Restaurant People

Categories: Review

Co-founder Tim Petrillo and Executive Chef and co-founder Peter Boulukos.
It's 7 o'clock on a Thursday night.

Outside, the damp pavement is steaming from an afternoon interspersed with showers and intense summer sun. Puddles line the curbs.

When the door opens, the cacophonous roar of multitudinous conversations rolls into the street.

"It'll be about two hours," says the hostess to an older, well-dressed couple inquiring about a table.

They walk toward the bar, quickly disappearing into the crowd.

The vintage-looking bar at Fork & Balls is stacked four deep with a wide array of people: 20-somethings in skyscraper platforms and short dresses, 40-something professionals in office-casual apparel, middle-aged couples in shorts and polos, and one dude straight out of a surf shop ad.

Like every other dish and ingredient known to man, the potato is about to see its big day. National potato day is coming up and Char Hut is giving away free fries to celebrate.
