Sloan's Ice Cream Opening New Location in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

Nicole Danna
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.

Mind Your Manors with American Comfort Food in Wilton Manors

The stuffed mushrooms, tater bombs, and MYM burger at Mind Your Manors.
If your mother ever told you to "mind your manners" when you were younger, it might bring back some interesting memories. Maybe you recall getting chastised for eating too fast, chewing with your mouth open, or belching at the table. Certainly, all things your adult self would never dream of doing.

You'll be reminded of these things when you arrive at Mind Your Manors, a new establishment that opened in the heart of Wilton Manors last month. Not because the name is a play on the familiar expression, but rather because it will be tempting to inhale everything in site, and you could be guilty of wiping up the last of what's left on the plate with your fingers.

M.E.A.T. Eatery & Taproom's duck and pickled blueberry sausage with an apricot, jalapeƱo, and shallot relish.
If it seems like the word "craft" gets thrown around way too much, you aren't alone in wondering when this craze will blow over. We get it: Pretty much every menu in South Florida is offering specially crafted this and that.

But what makes something truly craft? Take a seat at newly opened M.E.A.T. Eatery & Tap Room in Boca Raton and you'll get a better understanding; here, the idea of doing everything in-house goes one step further.

Like its sister establishment in Islamorada, the Boca restaurant smokes and grinds its own meats onsite, cuts and cures its own bacon, and offers house-made sausage and chorizo. Even the condiments -- including a mango chipotle ketchup and caraway and beer mustard -- are made fresh, and from scratch.

This could be you!
