All hands on deck at S3's kitchen.
The South Beach Wine & Food Festival wrapped up its four-day domination of Miami Beach on Sunday.

The 14th-annual event, which raises funds for Florida International University's Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management's Wine Spectator Restaurant Management Laboratory and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center, sees the best, brightest, and most famous chefs come to South Florida in what has been labeled by Emeril Lagasse as "Spring Break for chefs."

Though cold weather was a deterrent for some beach time, chefs made do, dining at local restaurants and enjoying a break in scenery. Although the event attracted national names like Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, and Geoffrey Zakarian, many local chefs participated in the various dinners and parties, with a particular spotlight on Broward restaurants.

American Social, with locations in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, won the New Times' Best Bites on the Beach award for its chicken and waffles, fried strips of pickle-brined white meat chicken breast served with a rosemary, oregano, and thyme waffle and topped with a dollop of bourbon cream sauce, warm spices, wild cherries, and maple syrup. This is the second consecutive win for American Social, Last year, the popular restaurant's foie gras French toast won the hearts and votes of Grand Tasting Village attendees.

Tucker Tuesday is back by popular demand.
No need to cry over spilled milk (and Tucker Duke's Lunchbox peanut-butter-and-jelly bonbons). The Deerfield restaurant has officially announced it will be reinstating its Tucker Tuesday deal the first Tuesday of every month.

The limited-run $5 burger special began back in December and was supposed to run only through the holidays up until the restaurant's one-year anniversary party February 10.

Now -- thanks to a demanding public outcry -- it's back for good.

Calypso Restaurant & Raw Bar Serves Bajan Fare on Island Time

If you pull up to Calypso Restaurant & Raw Bar on a Saturday evening, the parking lot will be empty. The lights will be off. And there will be no one waiting for a table.

This is not a bad sign, however. The longtime Pompano Beach restaurant hasn't held weekend hours for close to a decade. It doesn't matter if it's in or out of season. Calypso is open Monday through Friday only.

Owners Chuck and Lora Ternosky like it that way. After 25 years in business, the restaurant has garnered such a devout local following that they don't need to cash in on a weekend swell. And judging by the five-star ratings on Yelp, Trip Advisor, Google, and Urban Spoon, patrons like it that way too.

With the heavy focus the craft beer community has on barrel-aged, soured, and multihopped beers, it's refreshing to take a moment and explore a style that's built upon a solid foundation of simplicity. World of Beer, a Florida-based beer bar that offers hundreds of different beers at its trendy establishments, is seeking to bring some education to the masses with a month devoted to the light, clean, and crisp beer style known as the pilsner. Or pilsener. Or pils. A rose by any other name, we say.

There's one thing about making booze that's not like brewing beer in Florida: You can't make it at home without breaking the law.

And that was the inherent problem for Avi Aisenberg and Joe Durkin when they began their venture into South Florida Distillers, a distillery that recently opened for production in Fort Lauderdale.

The inaugural Bacon & Bourbon Fest will come to Delray Beach this March.
Forget Delray Beach's Garlic Fest. Now that it's come and gone, all we can think of -- and salivate over -- is the city's next food-focused event: the inaugural Bacon & Bourbon Fest.

Three years in the making, the event will celebrate bacon-infused fare and American bourbon for a truly indulgent focus. The event, set to take place in March, will join the ranks as the city's third food-focused theme in addition to the annual Delray Beach Wine & Seafood Festival.
