Table 42
Table 42 will closed Wednesday, October 1 and will reopen as Farmhouse Kitchen mid-November.
Where one door closes, another opens. At least, that's the idea behind the opening of Gary Rack's latest concept, which will join the Gary Rack Restaurant Management Group's family of restaurants including Racks Downtown Eatery + Tavern in Boca Raton's Mizner Park, and Rack's Fish House + Oyster Bar in Delray Beach.

On Wednesday, October 1, Rack closed Boca Raton's five-year-old Table 42 Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar -- formerly Coal Mine Pizza -- and plans are already underway to reopen the space as the group's latest incarnation: Farmhouse Kitchen. The concept will focus on farm-fresh fare and supporting local purveyors, with a menu designed for clean eating served in a comfortable, homey atmosphere.

Get $5 Cold Pressed Juice at Purely Pressed in Fort Lauderdale

These days, juice bars are popping up like froyo shops, one on every corner. Some sell made-to-order juice, while others perfect recipes and pack them up in glass bottles. Others sell all-organic juice for exorbitantly high prices, while a few choose not to use organic produce at all.

At Purely Pressed, a new juice bar that recently opened in Fort Lauderale, all these factors and more were taken into consideration to help make the focus -- and experience -- different than what most people are used to seeing. With a unique approach to making and selling their juices, smoothies, and food, co-owner Alan Potrzuski says he hopes people will see his juice bar and lunch spot as more health-focused than many of the others that have taken root in South Florida over the last few years.

Restore Coffee Roasters: a Coffee Shop in a Church, in a Mall

Restore Coffee Shop is part of Christ Fellowship Church at the Boynton Beach Mall.
Last April, the Christ Fellowship Church opened inside the Boynton Beach mall, a new permanent location for the nationwide worship center now located in the shopping center's old Dillard's department store space.

Today, members actually go to the mall for services, with access from the department store's old exterior and interior entrances. Despite the seemingly odd location, once inside it looks -- and feels -- like a free-standing church.

What makes it different from any other church, however, is its specialty coffee shop and lounge, Restore Coffee Roasters.

Around these parts, there's a lot of trepidation when it comes to finding good Italian food. Even the tourists don't expect to find decent pizza this far south -- and without a neighborhood of trattorias called Little Italy.

Despite the misconceptions surrounding our state's ability to churn out good pies and pasta, restaurateurs and chefs are facing the challenge head-on. That includes Big Time Restaurant Group, which will open a new Italian restaurant off Las Olas Boulevard later this year.

Tracy's Scrumptious Pretzel ice cream from Sloan's is one of more than 40 flavors.
More Sloan's Ice Cream stores will be opening in South Florida this year, beginning with the latest location set to open next month in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

The ice cream shop is a sugar high waiting to happen, best-known for its princess-pink walls, 40-something flavors of "luxury" ice cream, shelves of toys and games, and bins filled with bulk candy. And, of course, the exhibitionist-style bathrooms where a glass that reveals all frosts over the moment you lock the door.
