Yonutz: Yo, gourmet donuts in Sunrise.
A few days back I made a rather stressful trip to Ikea to return a few items and purchase some more. After waiting in the Motor-Vehicles-type line to exchange some extra items, I then had to wait in another queue to buy the things that I should have purchased in the first place. Driving out two hours later, I noticed a sign with the following equation:

Yonuts = gourmet donuts + gelato & soft serve treats.

This was math I could get into. Plus, after a trip to big-box retail hell, I deserved a treat.

Chowder Heads Serves Authentic New England Seafood, Opening Second Location in West Palm Beach

When was the last time you had a wicked good clam chowder? Or said the word "wicked" in a sentence, really?

Let's put it this way: You don't know a good bowl of chowder or bisque until you've had it New England-style, direct from Boston.

At least that's the sentiment of Chowder Heads founder Ed Wells, a native New Englander who opened his authentic Northeast seafood house in Jupiter -- what he says is the only South Florida establishment that delivers "real deal" New England seafood dishes, from Maine lobster rolls and bisque to authentic New England clam chowder, crab cakes, and whole-belly fried clams.

The Gluttonous Goat Gastropub Opens Friday in Boca Raton

ggbeeftacos.jpg
The Gluttonous Goat braised beef brisket tacos with chili cilantro rub and a fire roasted tomato corn relish.

The gastropub is growing in South Florida, a new era of dining that's sparked a spate of food-serving bars. The portmanteau of "gastronomy" and "pub," these hybrid establishments are meant to evoke the boisterous gathering spots originating in London in the early 90s. They're a place where you can get some stellar grub and a tasty drink -- all for a good price, and with a lively, communal atmosphere.

Luckily, the concept meshes well with the nation's other hot food trends of the moment: a focus on local, seasonal fare; cooking with the entire animal; boutique spirits; and a celebration of craft everything. All these elements play out in casual, tavern-like atmospheres, and you have a recipe for almost certain success.

To continue the momentum, a new gastropub dubbed the Gluttonous Goat will be celebrating its first day of business tomorrow in Boca Raton. The team behind the new establishment is using the name "craft house," to describe the theme as an outlet for everything small-batch, local and craft served up in a casual, tavern-style atmosphere.

The Taco Spot in Hollywood.
The Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is many things. It's great for people-watching and rollerblading, for example. And -- of course -- our favorite: eating and drinking.

But with an expansive strip offering one establishment after another, it's not too long before you start to notice a few Greek menus and ice cream shops filing past. For a place loaded with Mediterranean-themed establishments and soft serve, the 1-year-old Taco Spot presents a different option for tourists and locals.

Panko-encrusted salmon at The Porch in Delray Beach.
Newcomers to the Delray Beach scene are either flashy, high-end joints slinging cocktails and stuffing gastropub pomp down your throat, or the fad niche spots that never seem to last long. Then there are the quiet comers, the ones that steal the show over months of top-notch service, consistent fare and creative menus serving nothing but the best.

That's what you'll get with The Porch, a new restaurant located in one of Delray Beach's historic homes off Federal Highway just south of Atlantic Avenue.
